Therapeutic Considerations for the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Population
While we all need to explore the realm of the new to keep our body and mind fresh, those with progressive neurological conditions have no option but to build new pathways since the older roads have become blocked. For those with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), the fuzz may hamper ambulation, cognitive processing, memory, and emotional regulation. Working adaptively with yoga to spark fresh and unusual ways of linking movement, mind, and breath, without fatiguing the student is nuanced work.
In this course, Robin will share her extensive experience building a program for people with MS.
You will learn these key elements:
- Ways to sequence that encourage cognitive processing
- How to build kinetic chains that help students re-member parts that have been ‘off-line’
- The importance of core engagement to maintain stability
- Using the breath to decrease inflammation and increase oxygenation to the brain
- Alternation of focus to prevent fatigue and over-exertion.

Her passion for yoga inspired her to share yoga with a few friends in the basement of one of whom eventually lost her battle with cancer. She soon realized her love of yoga could only be surpassed by the desire to share it with others & the joy of seeing them benefit from yoga on many levels.
