Yoga for Parkinson’s Disease and Other Movement Disorders

Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimers. The most important thing a person with PD can do to combat its progression is to move their body!

This workshop will teach you how to provide the benefits of yoga to people living with PD. We’ll learn about the causes, symptoms and variety of issues faced by people with PD and other movement disorders, and how you can support them with an array of effective yoga practices.

The composition of symptoms in each person with PD is highly individual. We will learn techniques to meet our students where they are and still provide challenging, safe and life-affirming yoga. Mindful practices of breathing, body awareness, strength, flexibility, mental focus and self-compassion are key tools to provide folks living with these kinds of disorders.

In 10 hours of lecture, demonstration, discussion and practice you will:

  • Learn how to set up a safe space for people with a movement disorder, what movements and poses are most potent, and techniques to engage students with cognitive issues
  • Get the chance to design yoga sequences for all levels of students with PD, plus hands on practice teaching students with PD
    Explore diverse techniques to adapt and modify a class so that everybody can get the chance to experience what we all know as teachers—that yoga is for every body!
  • Learn how these techniques can apply to folks with stroke, MS, and other movement disorders
