Apr 15, 2021

Steffany Moonaz and Shira discuss Yoga therapy for arthritis, and what kinds of Yoga classes benefit, rather than aggravate, arthritis and other inflammatory conditions.

We touch on systemic inflammation and its relationship to depression, what makes Yoga therapy different from most Yoga classes and how to find resources and a good teacher for this condition.

Dr. Steffany, Yoga therapist, Yoga researcher, and director of research at the Maryland University of Integrative Health, creates, evaluates and trains professionals in programs to work safely and effectively with people who have arthritis and related conditions. 

She has written Yoga Therapy for Arthritis for Yoga professionals, healthcare professionals and people living with arthritis who want to better understand the role of yoga in arthritis management.
