Overview

Utilize the Benefits of Gentle Yoga to Relieve Your Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis

Over 2.5 million people are currently afflicted with multiple sclerosis, a chronic disease that affects the central nervous system.

While there is currently no cure for multiple sclerosis, maintaining a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet and regular physical activity can help in managing symptoms. Yoga is now recognized as an excellent practice for those with multiple sclerosis because it is a low-impact activity that can easily be modified for individuals with varying ranges of mobility.

Gentle Yoga for Multiple Sclerosis shows you how to integrate yoga into your exercise routine to improve your overall health and well-being.
