Class meets Every Monday from 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Beginning May 6th
People with PD have been shown to respond favorably to the practice of Yoga. This class is suitable for people with PD as well as their caregivers. While yoga cannot reverse PD, it can ease symptoms by improving core strength, flexibility, and balance. Yoga will also decreases stress and bring calm to a busy mind, allowing for deeper relaxation.
