I am putting together a class for folks with Parkinson's disease. I have taught people with MS and have that experience. Does anyone have any specific experience they would be willing to pass on....Thanks, yogawoods

Do you subscribe to Yoga Journal? February's issue had an entire article about it, including exercises.

Dear Yogawoods,

Mukunda has given some wonderful guidance on Parkinson's disease on this Q&A board. Search for Parkinson's (don't forget the ' or it won't show all the posts) and you'll get 4 older threads on the subject. The advise is framed for yoga therapists who see clients in private sessions, but I think it could be beneficial for your class too, especially if it is smaller sized and you can hold an intimate and sattvic space for them.

I hope this helps you prepare. I wish you all the best with this beautiful work.
