Yoga for MS (Multiple Sclerosis)


This class is taught by:

Valerie Armstrong

Valerie Armstrong
RYT-200, Baptiste Methodology
 
Valerie is an experienced nurse practitioner currently working in the occupational health field. She is originally from New York, and moved to Jacksonville to begin her career as a nurse practitioner. From 1999-2007, she worked as the coordinator for the Comprehensive MS Care Center at Mayo Clinic. She is remembered well in the community for her excellent care, research, and education regarding MS. As luck would have it for oMS Yoga, she "caught the yoga bug". She fell in love with the practice of yoga after practicing prenatal yoga, and completed her RYT200 teacher training at Hot Spot yoga. When Valerie reached out to us to teach, we felt like an old friend had come home. We are excited to welcome her on board. Her knowledge of MS and yoga will provide an excellent class. She is excited to combine both of her passions and teach oMS Yoga!
This gentle, yet challenging class will be adapted to all levels of ability. If you use an assistive device, you must be able to independently transfer and use the restroom facilities, or you must be accompanied by a care partner.
