Yoga is a great low impact way to bring mobility to those who have joint limitations.  Yoga can be very beneficial for those living with arthritis because it is a physical activity that involves stretching and strengthening which can help ease the pain of inflamed joints.

Some interesting facts:

  • Arthritis is not a single disease but an umbrella term for over 100 conditions like Lupus, Rheumatoid arthritis, Osteoarthritis, etc.
  • 4.6 million Canadians are directly affected with the numbers rising
  • By 2021, it is predicted that 21-26% of Canadians will have arthritis or one of its 100 related autoimmune diseases
  • One in three people affected are forced to quit their job, 55% go to work each day despite great pain and discomfort
