MS Yoga
Yoga, a program of gentle stretching, poses, breathing exercises, and meditation, has been touted for
relieving a wide variety of illnesses and disorders and is a great tool for stress reduction. In addition, practitioners firmly attest that yoga reduces muscle tension, nervousness, depression, anxiety, and emotional stress - all common occurrences with MS.
