There are many types of Arthritis, but generally it is characterized by pain and stiffness in joints throughout the body. You may also hear the words inflammation associated with arthritis. The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis, caused by wear and tear on the joints; rheumatoid arthritis, meanwhile, is an autoimmune disorder in which the body's own immune system attacks joints. But you may be surprised to learn that other disorders like IBS, Fibromyalgia, Psoriasis, Osteoporosis, Lupus (to name a few) are other presenters of inflammation that would also benefit from safe, gentle movement.
It can be a bit scary trying something you've never done before, or that fear of moving the wrong way when you're already in pain can also be daunting. Consult with your doctor first to make sure you are ready to begin exploring your body. It is advisable to start yoga with a yoga therapist for a private consultation, or specialty workshop or class aligned with the diagnosis in mind. The Yoga for Arthritis Workshop by Yoga Therapist RYT500 Tracy Roberge is designed to offer you modifications to poses and situations when necessary, and to safely get you feeling better gently.
