Arthritis-Friendly Yoga is a new program specifically created by the Arthritis Foundation for those who suffer from arthritis or achy joints. Statistics show that one in every five adults and over 300,000 children suffer from arthritis which is the nation’s leading cause of disability. This innovative 60-minute full practice DVD is aimed to restore energy, strength, and flexibility needed for everyday tasks. A thorough introduction of the practice by yoga and arthritis expert Steffany Moonaz, PhD helps put your mind at ease as you learn about the many healing benefits associated with yoga. The meticulously designed program includes step-by-step instructions offering numerous modified poses to protect troubled joints such as hips and wrists while allowing you to fully immerse yourself into the practice.
What sets this DVD apart from others is the easy-to-follow format, which includes varying levels of difficulty, allowing arthritis sufferers different options when participating in the practice. During each segment, each level is demonstrated, making it simple to practice whichever level is appropriate for your needs, and allowing you to progress as you become stronger. The incorporation of blocks, straps, and wedges enables you to customize your yoga practice depending on the severity of your disease. The relaxation and meditation segments are the perfect ending to help soothe your mind and body while easing your pain.
