Therapeutic Yoga Classes
Yoga not only lowers heart rate, helps people relax, and increases strength and flexibility (thus decreasing back pain). According to National Geographic, which cites the largest yoga study to use biological measures in its assessment, yoga also reduces inflammation – including the types of inflammation associated with cancer treatments and chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes and arthritis.
At Wellness Works, choose from four styles of yoga to incorporate into your wellness plan for an all-around healthier and happier lifestyle! In our small nurturing classes (12 student max) you will get individual attention, modifications and personal connection.
What others are saying about Therapeutic Yoga
Yoga in Chairs with instruction by Michelle has been one of the most beneficial activities for me since being diagnosed with MS nine years ago...I'm convinced the full body work out I experience with each Yoga session has postponed some of the debilitating symptoms of the disease....I've done well maintaining my coordination, balance, and stamina. And our group is so supportive of each other; it's like an extended family.

Some mornings I move slowly with zero motivation. I force myself out of the house to go to yoga class. After spending an hour with Michelle practicing yoga while breathing, stretching and calming my mind I leave rejuvenated and ready to start my day. Thank you, Michelle.
