Movement Disorders

Kula for Karma - Movement Disorders


Back pain is one of the most common medical problems, affecting 8 out of 10 people at some point during their lives. There is also a growing recognition that movement disorders are among the most common neurological diseases.

Our Kula for Karma classes are designed to meet the unique needs of our yoga students. Our instructors have advanced training to respond with customized therapeutics to increase muscle strength and flexibility while encouraging a clear mind and relaxation. Our population-specific breath work, meditation and modified poses allow our students to feel better in a supportive and understanding community.

"Traditional yoga provides a broad spectrum of benefits. However, there are many who can’t participate in standard yoga classes. For those with conditions such as cancer, cardiac disease, spine surgeries, or movement disorders, population-specific classes open the door to yoga experiences that are not only safe, sensible, and stress-relieving, but deeply therapeutic. There is no doubt in my mind that this custom-tailored, deeply informed yoga is profoundly therapeutic and healing for our students. It is a great honor to serve them; they are our greatest teachers"
