Yoga for Parkinson’s Online Training
Whether you're convinced you can't do yoga or you're an experienced guru (or anything in-between), if you're living with Parkinson's, maintaining a yoga practice can help relieve symptoms in body and soul.
With a focus on areas particular to Parkinson's, yoga can increase strength, balance and fluidity throughout a body that the disease weakens, throws off-center and stiffens.
Learn areas to target, poses best suited for those areas, when and where modifications can assist with alignment and stability.
Focus is also on some of the non-motor effects Parkinson’s has on the whole person and the yoga approaches to help ease them.
This training is designed for people with Parkinson’s - no matter how familiar they are with yoga - and for yoga teachers interested in learning more about the topic and how to teach specific classes for this population.
