Yoga DVD - Hamilton

  • Health and Wellness

The Hamilton Chapter has produced an adapted yoga DVD through a grant received from the Ministry of Health Promotion, Government of Ontario. Regular exercise is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. The DVD will enable you to participate in an adapted Yoga program in the privacy of your own home.

Hatha Yoga is an ideal type of exercise for individuals who have limited mobility due to MS or other physical conditions, who are recovering from an illness or aging. This DVD offers a relaxing yet rejuvenating series of exercises, is intended to be adapted to the abilities and needs of the viewers and can be customized to your goals and schedule.

Certified Yoga instructors Jarmila Standen and Nancy Blacklock guide viewers through a Hatha Yoga Program for anyone who needs a modified workout. Additionally, two participants, one seated in a wheelchair, and the other standing, demonstrate each of the exercises. Several poses are discussed and demonstrated as well as breathing and relaxation techniques.

Please contact the Hamilton-Halton Chapter 905-527-7874 or email ont-hamilton@mssociety.ca to purchase a DVD.
