About Our Yoga Program
The Ozzie Smith Centers of Springfield are proud to open Springfield, Missouri’s first medically-based yoga studio. Our yoga program was created and designed for people of all shapes and sizes to begin their yoga journey. Our classes are carefully designed for people with back pain, arthritis, stenosis. The poses and movements incorporated into our classes are adaptable for your certain condition and abilities. We are excited to see how you grow and improve in your flexibility and breathing!
For years The Ozzie Smith Centers of Springfield have recommended yoga to patients who have finished their plan of care at our clinics. We saw little follow-through with our recommendations because there was not a yoga studio in our area that is focused on yoga for people who are overcoming chronic pain. Under the direction of Chuck Renner, OTR, CHT our expert yoga instructors are well-versed in poses and movements that will provide relief for arthritis, stenosis and nerve pain. No past yoga experience is required for Yoga 101. We hope you’ll join us for this relaxing class!

Her flows encompass that passion with a nice steady pace, emphasis on staying connected with your breath, and encouragement to explore what you’re feeling in each movement.
