Yoga for Muscular Dystrophy

I just joined GLO and I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on teachers or classes for someone with a MD? I’ve been doing yoga for over ten years to help with my condition but I know every class setup is different. Just so you have an idea, I have weakness in my upper and lower extremities and can get on the floor but need a lot of assistance to stand up. I was thinking a gentle or restorative class might work but any recommendations on this would really help. Thanks so much!

Welcome to Glo @Sonali! I’d love to make some recommendations but was also curious if you had any particular goals for your yoga practice? Do you want to strengthen your extremities or other parts of your body? Or do you want to practice more for the zen feeling and enjoy breathwork as well? Or it could be all of it! :slight_smile:

Here are some delicious Restoratives in the meantime that I love:
