Scleroderma is a group of rare diseases that involve the hardening and tightening of the skin and connective tissues — the fibers that provide the framework and support for your body. 

In some people, scleroderma affects only the skin. But in many people, scleroderma also harms structures beyond the skin — such as blood vessels, internal organs and the digestive tract. Signs and symptoms vary, depending on which structures are affected. No drug has been developed that can stop the underlying process of scleroderma. But a variety of medications can help control scleroderma symptoms or help complications.

Scleroderma symptoms vary greatly from individual to individual; the manner in which each person responds to treatment also varies greatly; and there are many treatment options.

A person diagnosed with scleroderma may feel alone and uncertain about where to turn for help. He or she may experience a number of other feelings and emotional reactions from time to time, including initial shock or disbelief, fear, anger, denial, self-blame, guilt, grief, sadness or depression. Sue greatly appreciates the community support, encouragement and prayers since starting her yoga practice two years ago.

Yoga Born in Town Center Plaza, South Windsor, CT is the first yoga studio in the area to have a laser beam focus of the whole person. We see beyond limitations as we get to know your individual circumstances and personality.

Yoga Born is for you. Especially if you’re inflexible or reluctant. You will meet others just like you in this positive community.
