Join us for a panel discussion with teachers of yoga who are living with serious health challenges and tell their stories of dis-ease, and how yoga impacts their condition, their quality of life, and their path toward healing – Yogis with MS, AIDS, a heart condition, and a cancer survivor will inspire you to start or deepen your yoga practice, or at least understand why your family and friends practice yoga.
Q and A to follow with Deb Murray, Dr. Anastasia Pappas, Eric Small, Lisa Walford and Ida Unger.
Yoga, which literally means union, develops the health of the body and the clarity of the mind. It can also have therapeutic value, providing a path for prevention of disease and also curing disease. When curing is not possible, a yoga practice will make the symptoms of the disease more manageable.
