. . . . With Yoga Therapy

In Vienna, Fairfax | Heart Tree Yoga
Thrive: Supporting People With Parkinson’s Through Yoga Therapeutics

I’m really thrilled to share about a program I am pulling together to support people with Parkinson’s. It is a specialized, intimate program to designed to help build a toolbox of techniques to apply to the unique needs of each participant–to help respond to “what shows up” each day–whether the need is to manage energy, uplift mood, reduce anxiety, alleviate body tension, or build greater internal physical balance, stamina and support.

The program will use a unique combined format of private sessions and supportive small-sized community classes to help participants nurture a personal customized self-care practice. The community classes will include time to review and reinforce what each student is working on with their customized program so that the practices can become more integrated and supported in daily life.

If you know someone with Parkinson’s who you think could benefit from this unique opportunity, please contact me.
