Yoga can be beneficial for anyone, especially those with arthritis; it can be modified to suit whatever your body and mind need.
Lots of people with arthritis come to my classes and adapt the moves to suit them, whether that’s padding knees when kneeling or using a chair to avoid getting up and down too much - yoga is accessible for everyone.
It is a way of staying active, a form of exercise that is gentle enough to do regularly. Yoga helps to improve muscle strength, flexibility and counteract joint pain and stiffness. Not only beneficial physically, yoga can have a positive impact on the mind, helping to focus on feeling positive.
If you’ve been wanting to try yoga and don’t know where to start, the link below is to a gentle flow that has no positions on the knees. Don’t be scare to adapt where you need to, and most of all - enjoy it!
