Dr. Fishman’s Yoga for Arthritis – ONLINE
with Loren M. Fishman, M.D., B.Phil. (Oxon.)
June 6 - 7, 2020
For everyone, including Yoga teachers and health professionals
Arthritis disables more Americans than any other condition, and there are millions of people who are not formally disabled but yearn for the freedom, mobility, and reduced pain that Yoga can provide.
In this workshop, learn the mechanics’ principles of different joints in the body and how they each work. Experience the Yoga poses that relieve suffering and liberate the joints to move more freely with less discomfort. With increased movement in the joints, every activity will improve mobility further.
In addition to expanding the ranges of movement, Yoga also releases hormone-like substances that are powerful anti-inflammatories. These substances often lower the risk of cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and swelling in the body.
The hallmark of arthritis is a limited range of motion. If Yoga does anything, it stretches. Therefore arthritis and Yoga were made for each other.
On each day, you will have access to:
- Live sessions with Dr. Loren Fishman at 10 am–12 pm and 2:30–4:30 pm
- Integral Yoga Hatha videos and 5 pm Live Yoga classes
- Meditation videos
