As researchers have determined from their studies, yoga / stretching exercise and meditation are some of the most beneficial complementary therapies for Parkinson’s disease (PD) and MS helping to:

  • increase flexibility and balance,
  • improves strength and body posture
  • improves flexibility
  • improves blood circulation
  • improves coordination
  • helping with stress and anxiety
  • improves mental clarity
  • improves stress and pain management
  • build confidence,
  • encourage mobility,
  • develop inner peace and mindfulness
  • slow the advance of Parkinson’s
  • enhance the quality of life.

Yoga can help you to gently increase the range of movement in all limbs and joints and linking the movements to breath control, can improve co-ordination and balance and make you feel happier, stronger and more confident.

Sessions are tailored to your needs. It can be seated exercise using a chair or a mat based stretches or a combination of both depending on the strength, wishes and balance of the practitioner.

Each session lasts about 1hour and would be tailored to your needs including:

  • Initial relaxation – time to develop calmness within the body and mind and prepare for the practice of breathing exercises and body exercises. It also serves the purpose of reminding one of their intention and the benefits that yoga brings.
  • Breathing exercise – gentle exercises to remind ourselves of the correct breathing pattern that we tend to lose during our busy, stressful and hectic lives. It helps to increase the lungs capacity, increase the level of oxygen within the body and naturally decrease the level of stress within the body and mind.
  • Body exercise – practice of stretches and strength exercises to increase flexibility, body balance, increase the blood circulation and release any tension in muscles and joints.
  • Final relaxation with meditation – time to quiet the body and mind after the exercise, bring awareness to our mind and practice a gentle mindfulness meditation. It’s been scientifically proofed that meditation can help with stress, anxiety and depression.
