Yoga for Arthritis

Live online

Saturday, March 2, 2024

2 PM ET – 4 PM ET

and

Saturday, March 9, 2024

2 PM ET – 4 PM ET

In this four-hour webinar consisting of two sessions, the focus will be on the ways that yoga can alter the course of arthritis. A hallmark of all arthritis is limitation of range of motion. But if yoga does anything, it enables movement. Additionally, yoga’s emphasis on the breath, mindfulness, and philosophy, transform the associated symptoms of pain, limited mindset, and overwhelm. Yoga and arthritis were made for each other.  The two sessions will contend with three issues: 

1. Prevention – How can we nip it before it starts to bud?
2. Secondary Prevention – minimizing arthritis to avoid inactivity, osteosarcopenia, or depression.
3. Treatment – relieving pain, keeping or expanding range of motion and slowing, stopping or even reversing its otherwise inexorable progression.

Students, teachers and therapists may already know that arthritis is the greatest single cause of disability in the US. Further, that impressive number does not even include the most afflicted group – older people who are already retired.

In the US, 25% of adults have arthritis.
By 2040, 78 million U.S. adults will have arthritis.
Arthritis costs the US $303 billion annually.
