Arthritic Spine Lesson Plan Overview

This lesson plan was for a student with an arthritic spine who had little mobility. It was created using the Drag & Drop Yoga Genie Planner by one of our lovely members.

Yoga may cause painful flare ups in the short term because more movement is required from the joints. A little discomfort is ok in the short term because it means the joints are loosening in the long term. Don’t let the flare up be too painful. Start your practice with gentle warm ups. If it is painful to hold a pose, don’t stay for more than a few seconds. Instead, develop mobility in the joints by flowing in and out of the pose. Use props when needed.
