Yoga for PD « The Yoga Room
I am very pleased to be sharing my yoga practice and teaching with a wonderful group of folks who belong to PD (Parkinson’s Disease) Active. These students have Parkinson’s Disease, and come to the practice each week to stretch and strengthen their bodies. We laugh together and support one another during this adapted yoga practice. The emphasis of our work is on opening and stretching against rigidity; breathing and linking together fluid movement; working with balance; and practicing relaxation. Working adaptively and therapeutically with this group has increased my understanding of yoga and strengthened my teaching immeasurably.
Yoga for PD brings free, accessible yoga classes to the east bay Parkinson’s community in a safe, gentle environment. The class is funded by a grant from the Yoga Dana Foundation.
