Colombians living with MS celebrate World MS Day

2010 Employment

A practical day of seminars for people with MS took place in a central city park.

The MS Society of Colombia organised a practical day for people with MS to come together and learn how to manage their disease using complimentary therapies such as yoga and music.

Lunch was served to more than 100 people with MS. It was useful for them to meet other people living with the disease and many guests reported a feeing of solidarity and inclusion that they rarely feel in their everyday lives.

After lunch guests were treated to a musical therapy session, a yoga class, and a relaxation session, all designed to enhance mental and physical health using simple exercises that could be done at home.

The event took place in a city centre park which added to the relaxing atmosphere of the day.
