Working On Wellness Foundation provides exercise for those with conditions that require it just to keep moving. We now provide online seated/chair exercise opportunities for anyone with mobility issues.

Izzy presents a full session of yoga movements that can all be done while remaining seated. Start out slowly by moving only one part of your body. Progress until you're doing full-body movements. Learning yoga means you're learning how to relax. I use yoga breathing to combat the stress of my life with Multiple Sclerosis. Even if you don't have time to do a full workout, learn how to start with the yogic breath and then apply the movements that will help you.
Remember, do what YOU can do safely. Challenge, but don't overdo it. Adjust the poses to your own unique abilities.
The Working On Wellness Foundation provides online seated exercise sessions, created and conducted by our experienced and certified instructors.
Each week, our channel will highlight a week of yoga, strength training, big movement, and general exercise sessions. All can be done while remaining seated. They include cardio, upper body, lower body, core, balance, coordination, and hand exercises.
To access additional exercise videos please complete our Contact Form.
People with Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, and other conditions benefit physically through exercises that promote range of motion, strength, balance, and coordination. They also benefit from the social atmosphere of being in a group that shares the same daily challenges.
Working On Wellness Foundation wants to make it a little easier for those people by providing chair-based exercise sessions lead by certified instructors. Now these sessions can be accessed through Zoom or via YouTube.
