Overview

Yoga for people with multiple sclerosis? Absolutely! Studies show that after six months of practicing yoga, fatigue and other symptoms are significantly reduced. 
Yoga and Multiple Sclerosis: A Journey to Health and Healing is a comprehensive and user-friendly guide to applying the principles of yoga to managing your MS. Yoga and Multiple Sclerosis contains information for people experiencing symptoms across the MS spectrum, including those who are in wheelchairs or who have limited mobility. With the help of this book, you will be able to manage your symptoms, raise your functional abilities to their highest levels, and foster independence and confidence.
Co-author Eric Small was diagnosed with MS at the age of 22, and soon after became a serious student of Iyengar yoga, which has helped him greatly with the effects of his illness. He has been teaching yoga since the mid-1960s. His story is a perfect example of the benefits yoga can bestow on those living with MS.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“For decades, yoga teachers all over the United States have acknowledged the work of Eric Small as the ultimate in helping them work with their own students with MS. No doubt they are now celebrating because Small and long-time yoga student and back expert, Loren Fishman, MD, have produced the definitive book on the topic. Not only does this book offer insight into yoga practice and self-transformation for those living with MS, it also offers something even more important: hope. To say this book will become a classic is an understatement.”—Judith Hanson Lasater, PhD, PT, yoga teacher since 1971, and author of six books on yoga

    Yoga and Multiple Sclerosis: A Journey to Health and Healing

    With a little adaptation, yoga can be mentally and physically therapeutic for people who have multiple sclerosis (MS). That is the main idea behind 'Yoga and Multiple Sclerosis: A Journey to Health and Healing' by Dr. Loren Fishman and Eric Small. The authors propose that the primary benefits of yoga for people with MS include reducing functional deficits, increasing self-reliance and steadying the mind. Rather than getting lost in jargon, Fishman and Small disseminate their knowledge in a lucid manner that readers who have never tried yoga will appreciate. The many photographs sprinkled throughout the pages are helpful visual cues for readers when they attempt the different poses. Its credibility is boosted considerably by the fact that the two authors have decades of experience with using yoga as a way to manage symptoms of MS. Small began participating in yoga after being diagnosed with MS when he was 22, and he has been teaching yoga since the mid-1960s. Fishman has incorporated yoga into his work with rehabilitation for more than 25 years. With this book, people with MS stand to gain a progressive education on safely and effectively practicing yoga.

    good resource but lacks a follow-along routine

    I got this book nine years after my MS diagnosis and I wish I had found it years earlier! I was a total yoga beginner and this book adresses that as well as the issues of MS and other neurological disorders. You learn the basic poses using the standard forms as well as alternatives depending on your needs. I would recommend this book along with the dvd (ordering info in back of book). I would like to have seen at least one complete routine on the dvd though. They just show how to do individual poses which is helpful but falls short of being something you can put in the player and follow along.
