The step-by-step MS yoga program on this DVD is primarily taught by certified Dahn Yoga instructor Dawn Quaresima. The DVD also features interviews with MS patients who have practiced Dahn Yoga. In addition to the basics of Dahn Yoga, both MS patients and other viewers will learn how to utilize sitting, standing, and floor positions, how to gain energy through simple breathing techniques, and how to quiet the mind for meditation.
This DVD was inspired by Cathy Downie, who began taking Dahn Yoga in 2005 and quickly discovered its healing effects as her MS symptoms, including fatigue and pain, began to lessen considerably. Working with both the MS Society and the non-profit Dahn Foundation, she began teaching Dahn Yoga classes to MS patients, which eventually culminated in her helping to develop this instructional DVD.
"I am a student in this class being presented on this video and my daughter is a participant in this video. Cindy has MS and has been fighting it for 15 years. She has been wheel chair bound for the last 4 years. Since she has been participating in Cathy Downie's Dahn Yoga classes, she is now using her walker most of the time and only uses her wheel chair for long shopping trips. I have arthritis in my knees and have had a lot of trouble walking and since I have been participating in these classes, the pain has diminished. I highly recommend this video!"

"I have relapsing remitting form of MS and have seen a decline in my physical abilities since my diagnosis a year ago. My right hand is much weaker, pins and needles sensation, spasticity, and a lack of feeling or ability to grip things. [...] This one session alone helped me so tremendously. I don't feel any spasticity in my right hand and its the closest its felt to normal since my crazy journey of symptoms with MS has begun. It actually feels better. I'm astounded and tremendously grateful to find this DVD. If anyone has or knows someone with MS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia etc... Run to do not walk to the computer to order this one,its a keeper. I have done various forms of yoga this one is different. Think gentle physical therapy exercises meets yoga, massage and reflexology rolled into one."

"I am a nurse practitioner and I also have MS. I have tried to do regular yoga videos, but they are too difficult for me. I have very poor balance and body aches which prevents me from doing many of the poses in the typical yoga videos. Dahn yoga for MS is wonderful, not only for people with illnesses or disabilities, but for anyone! It's easy to follow and gives alternative ways to do the poses if one is too difficult. You can do this video if you are unable to walk or in a wheelchair. [...] As a healthcare professional and someone who has MS, I would highly recommend this video to anyone, but especially those with physical limitations. It's not the typical yoga and that is what's so great about it."
