    Yoga for Arthritis was developed by yoga researcher and arthritis expert Steffany Moonaz, PhD, along with an interdisciplinary team, 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 arthritis. In a 7-year randomized clinical trial at Johns Hopkins University, the program’s participation was associated with improved arthritis symptoms, physical fitness, psychological functioning and quality of life. Such evidence is vital for bridging the integrative yoga world with medical healthcare, making these practices more accessible to those who really need them.

    This training program trains yoga teachers to safely and effectively impart rigorously researched yoga practices, with individually-tailored modifications, to those with arthritis and related conditions. As a result of taking this Yoga for Arthritis teacher training program, participants will be able to:

    • Become familiar with the most common arthritic conditions, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, psoriatic arthritis, etc.
    • Understand joint anatomy and pathophysiology as related to arthritis in depth
    • Offer modifications for joint limitations and chronic pain
    • Teach Yoga for Arthritis classes in their communities

    INTRO TO AQUA YOGA ONLINE COURSE

    When: 7/20, 7/27, 8/3, 8/10 

    As someone living with arthritis for more than 30 years and the former Program Director for Yoga for Arthritis, Christa is passionate about expanding yoga opportunities for people living with arthritis. Frequently living with arthritis means living with chronic pain, and she wants to help people get out of pain as quickly and efficiently as possible. While yoga can benefit anyone, yoga in the water, presents some unique opportunities for arthritis/chronic pain warriors.

    • Water offloads weight and increases the range of motion in joints. Both of those can benefit people living with arthritis.
    • Water increases the challenge of breathing, which can expand your opportunities to connect with your breath. That increased connection with your breath will hopefully lead to better vagal nerve toning, and reduce pain.
    • Working in the water expands our neural networks since most of us are not used to performing anything in an aquatic environment. Reinforcing new neural networks gets us out of our samskaras of old habits, and pain feedback loops.
    • Most importantly it’s super fun!

    If you’re an arthritis patient who wants to try aqua yoga, this course gives you the resources and support so you can practice yoga in the pool. If you’re a yoga teacher looking to work with people with arthritis in the water – this is Christa’s specialty. She does this every day, lives with it herself, and provides you the materials and support to grow into this arena as a teacher. As former YFA staff, she understands the skill sets you already bring, and clearly shows you how to integrate this new material to better serve your clients and expand your yoga business opportunities.
