    Skillman, NJ. On Sunday, October 30, 2011 the Princeton Center for Yoga & Health will host a two-hour program for people diagnosed with multiple sclerosis from 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM at the Montgomery Professional Center, 50 Vreeland Drive, Suite 506, Skillman, NJ. This is the third event in an ongoing series dedicated to combining the practice of yoga and healthy eating to manage MS. A fourth seminar will be held on Sunday, December 11, 201l.

    Dan Fernandez, Certified Yoga Teacher and instructor at Princeton Yoga, has developed a series of programs to address various aspects of life with MS. Fernandez was diagnosed with the disease in 2005. “When I first discovered that I had MS, I felt like I was no longer in control of my life; that my disease was in control,” he explains. “Luckily, I found that through yoga, I could bring back a greater sense of control. Dedication to the practice of yoga not only means taking care of my body through proper movement and breathing, but also how I conduct my life and what kind of food choices I make.” The October 30 program will include tips for food choices that help mitigate the symptoms of MS. For people diagnosed with MS or other autoimmune diseases, maintaining a healthy diet remains a key factor in combating the debilitating aspects of the disease.
