Feedback from last year’s almost three hundred attendees in person event was excellent. Sponsors and attendees noted that this type of educational event for patients with MS, families, and friends was a very much needed, “first of its kind.” The Holistic Health and Wellness Forum, now virtual, will expand access and knowledge about this integrative approach to health and education for MS around the country.

Yoga Moves MS is a non-profit 501(c)(3) that offers adaptive yoga to those living with MS in southeastern Michigan founded by Mindy Eisenberg. Adaptive yoga therapy is provided as an innovative, multidimensional approach, tailored to the whole person and uses yoga, breathing, meditation and relaxation techniques, which can complement health care and other alternative approaches for health and well-being. Yoga serves as an umbrella for a whole systems approach to self-care. Our vision is to help people living with MS become empowered with knowledge about the healing benefits of a holistic lifestyle.

In response to the pandemic, YMMS provides seven virtual yoga and mediation sessions per week since March 2020. Virtual classes will continue indefinitely even once the pandemic is over. Once it is safe, YMMS classes will also return to in person.
