Living With Polio

Yoga for Polio Survivors

“Our goal in this video is to introduce Hatha yoga, breath awareness and stress reduction to people with Post-Polio Syndrome in order to increase their energy, reduce fatigue and create an increased sense of well-being.

These exercises and postures can be modified according to one’s abilities and limitations and can be utilized and integrated with most other medical treatment plans that a patient may be following.”  -David Riley, MD
