This yoga video is designed for those with arthritis in their hips. Osteoarthritis is caused by degeneration of the joints; when the cartilage that covers the ends of the bones wears away, bone rubs against bone. Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disease that attacks the synovial lining of the joints causing swelling and stiffness. This yoga video will focus on three main things. Firstly when we are in pain we tend towards shallow breathing. We will focus on deepening your breath so that oxygen can reach the inflamed areas. Secondly, we will focus on increasing the range of motion in the joints. Increasing the range of motion in the joints will help to reduce stiffness and increase synovial fluid. Thirdly we will strengthen and lengthen the surrounding areas. Creating stability and strength in the muscles around the joint provides support for the joint and improved ability to weight bear. Lengthening the muscles and soft tissues around the joints helps to create more space in the actual joints. Please check with your medical doctor and ask what exercises are appropriate for your particular condition and what precautions you should take.

N.B. We will only be giving access to our videos through our membership community now. It is there that we feel we can adequately support our members through whatever their biggest challenge is. So for example, if somebody buys a yoga for arthritis video, they are missing out on the 23 other videos we have available in our membership community that are available to support you in helping you with hip arthritis! We feel the value is incredible. For the price of 3 videos you can have a quarterly membership and access to over 200 videos. It was just a no-brainer for us to make the switch to be able to support our students better.
