What is coming in our Mini-workshop series “Living Well with RA”

  • Therapeutic Yoga for Those with Arthritis

March 25, 2009 at 6:00 pm in Carrie Hall – presented by Leslie H Worris, MPH and founder of The Wellness Alliance.

Ms. Worris, a highly trained wellness consultant and yoga therapist, turned to Yoga because of her own battle with chronic illness.  She will actively engage the audience in doing Yoga poses, many while seated in a chair, that release tension in muscles and calm the mind.  Her approach is to empower individuals and to find ways to realistically fit exercise/yoga, eating well and a balance of work and play into their lives.
