Support Groups

Support Groups provide resources, information and a sympathetic ear to those who have been affected by lupus in a caring and supportive environment. Receive a welcome packet at your first meeting with lots of resources and information. 

We are proud that the Indiana Chapter provides "Living with Lupus" support groups in 13 communities and will launch an online support group in February 2017. Learn more about meeting dates, times and locations or call 800.948.8806.  Meeting details can also be located on our Events page.

Yoga/Tai Chi Classes

We are very excited to be able to offer free gentle yoga and tai chi classes for people with lupus and one caregiver or support person. This is seated/chair-supported yoga and tai chi. Attendees wanting to add more intensity to their yoga sessions are welcome to bring a yoga mat to do some of their exercises on the floor.

Classes are currently held in Carmel but we hope to expand this offering to other areas of the state in 2017. If you teach yoga or tai chi and would be interested in partnering with us to bring classes to other locations, please contact Debbie Campbell (debbie@lupusindiana.org). Additional Information
