Yoga is one of the most popular therapies for people with MS. It helps to provide core stability. It is a unity of mind and body and is as much about your breathing and your outlook on life as it is about postures. Done properly, yoga calms the mind and energises the body, as well as helping to counteract stress, fatigue and depression. It has a good effect on the endocrine glands, the circulatory and respiratory systems, and improves well-being.
The Centre is fortunate to have a highly experienced and well-qualified teacher, Gill Ansty, who has been teaching for over 20 years.
