About the YFA Program

Yoga for Arthritis was developed at a leading research university by an interdisciplinary team of medical and healing professionals, including rheumatologists, psychologists, public health researchers and yoga therapists. Combining ancient yoga practices with modern medical knowledge, this program offers modifications to address the unique abilities and limitations of persons with rheumatoid and/or osteoarthritis. In a 7-year randomized clinical trial, program participation was associated with improved arthritis symptoms, disease biomarkers, physical fitness, psychological functioning and quality of life.


“The weekend was as good as it gets in every way. The content flowed seamlessly from specific to general,from head-y to hands on, from policy to practice, and I can’t imagine being in a room with savvier, warmer, more generous colleagues. You did a great job of pulling it together. Thank you!” -Elizabeth Mann
