Remember, be gentle to your body. Yoga isn’t a race, and you’re not competing against anyone except yourself. If something starts to hurt, don’t overdo it. Listen to your body when it says you’ve reached a limit. Whenever you have flares, adapt your poses and practice to adjust to your body. Yoga is great because it’s so flexible. You can practice at different intensities and durations depending on how your body is feeling that day. Don’t be afraid to take a day off either!
Yoga can provide many benefits for anyone with rheumatoid arthritis and can be safely practiced with a gentle approach. Remember to listen to your body and learn ways to modify poses to best fit your body and limitations.
