Gym offers yoga for those with MS

The Medically Oriented Gym in South Portland announced the addition of two exercise classes in February designed for community members with special health needs.

Yoga for Multiple Sclerosis is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, Feb. 20. Taught by Allison Zuchman of AZ Yoga for You, the benefits of yoga for people with M.S. include:

 Improved strength, flexibility, balance and range of motion help reduce muscle tension and muscle spasms.

 The combination of movement, breathing and relaxation poses reduce

MS-related fatigue, anxiety, and depression and improve mental outlook.

 Restorative poses at the end of class calm the nervous system.

Class will be held at the Medically Oriented Gym, 29 Foden Road in South Portland.
