Arthritis At Home Episode 138 – Yoga with Ellen: Core, side body and low back

In this episode of Arthritis at Home, ACE’s Programs Coordinator Ellen Wang, takes the audience through a 20-minute yoga sequence that is focused on the trunk area including the core, side body and low back. Engage the core, lift out of the pelvis, and build some heat as you flow through seated movements. Then Ellen combines her practical knowledge and experience to guide the audience mindfully to the yoga mat. Learn to access postures that are commonly uncomfortable for individuals living with arthritis. All you need is a chair, pillow/cushion and yoga blocks if available.
