Yoga for Multiple Sclerosis

Yoga for Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that affects the nervous system by deteriorating the myelin sheath that coats the nerves.  This causes the nerves to short out in much the same way an electrical wire might if the plastic coating surrounding it were damaged.  MS can cause a wide array of challenges ranging from loss of feeling to paralysis and even death. Jane Gould, a San Francisco area yoga teacher was diagnosed with MS and used Tibetan healing and yoga in conjunction with western medicine to a manage the disease and even reverse some of its effects.  She now offers yoga classes for others with MS and has seen the same miraculous results in many of her students.  In this interview Jane tells her own inspiring story and offers hope to others living with MS.
