Join us for a Parkinson's Yoga class every Friday at 11:45am! WHY YOGA THERAPY? "People with Parkinson’s have a difficult time walking due to problems with balance and mobility. This often comes with a predisposed fear of falling. Yoga improves how people with PD walk, while cutting down their fear of toppling over...Yoga is the perfect accompaniment to your daily Parkinson’s fitness routine." -Brian Grant Foundation There are many positive health benefits incorporating yoga into an individual’s daily routine and help with symptoms that can be caused by Parkinson’s disease. Some of the benefits are but not limited to relieving stress and emotional well-being, sleep, postural balance, low-back pain, being overweight, assistance with psychological symptoms such as depression and anxiety, and ultimately research has shown it helps individuals with chronic diseases manage symptoms to improve overall quality of life.
