Yoga can strengthen joints, which is crucial for delaying and managing arthritis. Yoga can also regulate the body’s uric acid levels, which can contribute to arthritis. Most importantly, yoga can lead to a healthier lifestyle, enhancing resistance against arthritis and other chronic conditions. Learn simple postures aimed at addressing arthritis from head to toe. Wear loose, comfortable clothing and have a mat/towel for second class. No experience necessary; seated, standing, and/or floor options.
