Many of our students at Legacy Emanuel are living at or below the poverty line. They struggle with multiple chronic health issues that are challenging due to lack of resources including obesity, diabetes, and depression. Many students carry with them trauma histories due to generations of poverty. Yoga helps them to manage their pain, regain strength, and be in community with others who experience similar challenges.
Legacy Good Samaritan
At Legacy Good Samaritan, we offer programs within their Pain Management Clinic. All of our students suffer from chronic pain conditions, including fibromyalgia, lupus, and arthritis. The practice of yoga helps them to interrupt the pain cycle with brain training exercises, mindful movement, breathing practices, and meditation.
