This class will restore balance by helping to strengthen your body, calm your mind, regain your focus and improve self-confidence. This class is a slower, less physically challenging form of the discipline often used by people with movement limitations, such as those with chronic conditions like arthritis and back pain or who are recovering from surgery.
Gentle yoga is not a cure for arthritis, but it can help people manage their pain, lead more active lives and boost their mood, research shows. And it makes sense for those with pain and limited mobility because it's safe and poses little risk of injury.
There's evidence gentle yoga can alleviate lower back pain; build muscle strength; improve function, balance and posture; and mitigate mental health problems such as anxiety, stress, depression and insomnia.
