It is this time of the year again: the MS walk is coming up on April 24 2016!
In 2000 I was diagnosed with MS, an often disabling disease of the nervous system. I started taking regular yoga classes at Yoga Garden in 2008 and yoga has helped me to stand straight and keep moving!
Yoga is great for people with MS: it calms the nervous system; it helps stretch and relax muscles; and it emphasizes alignment to improve posture and balance.
Since 2011 I have been walking the San Francisco MS Walk; every year I raise money for my team named ‘Magnificently Sexy’. In the last few years I received many donations from my fellow yogis, and I ask for your help again. Any donation is welcome, every dollar helps.
I wrote my story on my personal space, where you can also find more about MS and how to contribute:
Thank you so much in advance!
