PATIENT CARE MOVEMENT
Move beyond the incurable.
Patient Care Yoga is a movement to improve outcomes for the chronically ill through accessible yoga, experiential anatomy education, and consideration of self in both live and virtual settings.
HOW WE MOVE THROUGH
We are shaped by our obstacles; we are defined by how we move through them.
We recognize the limitations of those living with chronic dis-ease including pain, weakness, fatigue, autonomic dysfunction, and immobility. We welcome all, and believe all conditions are good and well.
Patient Care Yoga offers classes that flow slowly and deliberately, virtual and in-person. Our practices may incorporate bolsters, blocks, blankets, balls, walls, chairs and straps. We lean into support and prop ourselves up to discover new paths towards strength.
You are invited to join our patient, encouraging community.
To help face difficulties that accompany poor health all yoga props, privates, classes, and workshops are available through scholarship provided by grants and private donation.
