Certified Yoga Therapist and Instructor Brings Accessible Guided Yoga Classes to MS Community Virtually

  • Announcement

Certified Yoga Therapist and Instructor Sarah Robson-Bily is offering free live yoga classes virtually, allowing anyone to participate in an accessible guided yoga practice from the comfort of their own home.

With 5 different class types – vinyasa, yoga nidra, yin, gentle yoga (with or without a chair) and hatha – attendees can choose the yoga practice that works for them. The two gentle specialty classes are well-suited for individuals with injuries, challenging diseases or disabilities, although depending on mobility, such individuals may find they can participate in any class. In every class Sarah is able to offer a wide variety of modifications for each pose, making her classes accessible to all members of the MS community including caregivers.

Sarah witnessed her mother live with primary progressive MS and quickly go from an active person to a person with mobility issues who used a wheelchair, “Now, I am trying to do what I can to help people like my mom who may be dealing with cognitive and/or physical limitations, stress and anxiety and may not be able to do or access a traditional yoga class, but would like to receive the benefits of yoga.”

Sarah’s live yoga classes are available to anyone who has access to a device such as a phone, tablet or computer, and the internet. For class descriptions, a class schedule, Zoom links for each class, and to connect with the rest of Sarah’s yoga community, visit: Just For You Yoga Facebook page. Classes are delivered in English and the class size is limited to 100 participants per class.
