In Vienna  | What is Yoga Therapy?

Heart Tree Yoga offers a unique approach to help individuals enhance overall well-being and
enrich a sense of inner freedom and resilience through yoga therapy and movement education.
This approach helps individuals:
* find greater ease of movement, flexibility and balance
* build stability and strength in an integrated way
* reduce pain, strain, tension, and tightness
* relieve stress and enhance relaxation
* improve mental clarity and balance mood
Carolyn has created two programs for people living with Parkinson’s
* THRIVE: Supporting People with Parkinson’s Through Yoga Therapeutics.
* Growing Resilience: Mindfulness and Body Awareness for People with Parkinson’s Disease.

A message from Dance for PD® about their streamed classes (8/2/19)
We have established a new home for our streaming videos on the Dance for PD website. We hope this will make it easier to access these valuable resources. We will continue to provide free access to our monthly stream for anyone who wishes to view the class. After one month, the featured class will be transferred to our Streamed Class Archive and available free of charge to Dance for PD Members who log into our website with their membership credentials.
This new structure will allow us to continue to sustain the ongoing streamed programming you have come to expect from us. If you’re not already a member and would like to access the full resources of our archive*, please click here to join us today.
*Although the new platform is now operational, it will take us some time to fully populate the new archive as we continue to migrate videos to the platform during the next few weeks. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this transition.

. . . with Interactive Metronome Training

Email: / Phone: 703-934-4785
Cost:  Assessment $50 / One-on-One Sessions $150/Hr
Interactive Metronome (IM) can help improve balance, coordination, and gait.  And, in turn, reduce fall risk.  And that’s only part of what IM training can do.  The 1.5 hour assessment is a great introduction to this powerful technology.  Learn what IM is all about, ask questions, set goals, work through the assessment exercises, and see how you score (at the millisecond level).  Accommodations can be made for wheel chairs and walkers.

. . . and there’s more

The Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area (PFNCA) offers a variety of exercise programs including climbing for Parkinson’s and Tai Chi, as well as communications clubs.
