Virtual Yoga Series

Download Flyer

Have you wanted to try yoga, but didn’t know where to begin? Did you previously practice yoga, but felt like you couldn’t continue? Our upcoming Chair Yoga series, led by Gena Foreman, is an adapted form of yoga that makes it accessible to everyone. Gena has over 25 years experience as a student, teacher and mentor. Her classes are a balanced fusion of informed, conscious yoga postures with attention to breath (pranayama) and healthy energetic alignment. Her instructions are clear and concise, offering modifications to address injuries or the special needs of her students. Throughout her classes students learn yoga is not a “one size fits all practice” and that there is more than one way to be in a pose.

Making sense of MS research: A focus on wellness research - Robert Motl

Download Flyer

Robert Motl is an internationally known researcher on the effects of exercise and physical activity for people with multiple sclerosis (MS). He has systematically developed a research agenda that focuses on physical activity and its measurement, predictors, consequences, and interventions in persons with neurological diseases, particularly MS. Motl has generated a body of research on the validity of common physical activity measures in persons with MS. This has resulted in foundational research on quantifying differences in physical activity, particularly rates of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity, in persons with MS.

These two lines of research have provided the basis for examining the outcomes of physical activity in MS, particularly beneficial adaptations in brain structure, cognition, depression, fatigue, walking disability, and quality of life.
