Jade River Offers Small, Therapeutic Yoga Classes

We know that you have many choices about where to practice yoga.  That’s why we offer small, therapeutically focused yoga classes.  We know that many of our patients may be uncomfortable going to classes at larger studios: chronic pain, physical limitation or past injury, discomfort with larger classes, or need for more focused instruction are all reasons that may keep patients from yoga classes.

Many of the providers at Jade River have active yoga practices, and know first-hand the benefits of yoga for pain, stress, insomnia, and other complaints. Because of this, we LOVE to introduce our patients to yoga, and that is why we offer classes, workshops and private lessons at Jade River. Our yoga instructors are highly trained and experienced in working with people with varying issues. We know that “coming home” to one’s body is often a first step in the deep healing we foster at Jade River, and we look forward to sharing yoga with you.
