Yoga can be a fantastic, low-impact exercise for people with multiple sclerosis. Its relaxed nature allows us to unwind both physically and mentally at our own pace. It is particularly beneficial for people who want to exercise but prefer a less intense approach than an outside run or a gym session.
Véronique Gauthier-Simmons has practiced yoga for almost two decades to help with her relapsing-remitting MS. She was also a presenter at the 7 Steps To Overcoming MS event at the AMEX Stadium in Brighton in October 2017. In her two-part video below she shows how yoga can help improve stability and relax the mind. All you need before starting is a blanket, a quiet space and half an hour of your day.
