Event description
Yoga for Parkinson's with Renee Le Verrier, E-RYT

About this Event

The aim of each class is to build strength, flexibility and balance, reduce muscle rigidity and the grip Parkinson's has on body as well as spirit. The instructor modifies traditional poses, adapts flows and restructures the standard yoga class format to target physical needs, and bring balance to life with Parkinson's.

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, yoga can help relieve symptoms. Join this online class with viewers from around the globe who are also living with Parkinsons, even the instructor. You're not alone.

Each class focuses on areas particular to Parkinson's. Supports - chair, wall, cushion, block, blanket - aid balance and reduce the fear of falling. This clears the mind for opportunities to notice areas of strength. Classes include a mix of the following:

  • demonstration and step-by-step movements with variations (such as seated or standing)
  • cues on how, what and where to notice yoga's effects
  • relaxation techniques
  • tips to try
  • ways to apply yoga to everyday activities

Since the class is live, on-the-spot strategies for "off" times, dyskinesia and dystonia weave through each class.

No one should walk the Parkinson's journey alone.
