This workshop is for professionals interested in teaching an integrated and highly specialized system of adaptive yoga movements “grounded in real life.” Close to 1.5 million Americans have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD), a chronic illness both progressive in nature and without a cure. The workshop will clarify how to stimulate neuro pathways for those affected by PD and other movement disorders by promoting awareness of movement, choice in action, and mind/body connection. This 16-hour CEU workshop includes lecture, demonstrations, role playing, practice, brain teaser games, meditation and discussions. Certified yoga therapists, teachers, health care providers and care partners will acquire skills to teach a YogaReach Mindful Movement class for PD in their communities. Attendees will also observe people with PD participate in a Mindful Movement Class.

The information in this training will also apply to individuals with other neuromuscular disorders.

In this workshop, you will gain skills to help launch your own Mindful Movement classes in your community. as well as:

  • Recognize how to define and understand diverse symptoms related to PD

  • Learn movement techniques to support clients’ body, mind and spirit

  • Create individualized and curriculum-based instruction

  • Help clients and care partners enrich their daily living skills

Professionals working in yoga studios, spas, schools, fitness centers, and medical centers or in the fields of Occupational and Physical Therapy would benefit from these adaptive strategies to serve this growing community.
