Yoga Therapy Group for Parkinson's

Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) specializing in Parkinson's disease - Bloomington IN,  Indiana.

Simply Yoga Therapy is a gentle, therapeutic yoga class designed specifically for those with early or late onset Parkinson's disease (PD), and who would like more than a seated yoga class. Small therapy groups meet individuals at their level of ability and encourage a 'beginner's yoga' mentality regardless of ability or past yoga experience. Yoga therapy classes are led by a C-IAYT yoga therapist specializing in yoga therapy for neurological conditions and movement disorders

​ 

  • Gentle, therapeutic yoga appropriate for Parkinson's, reduced mobility and range of motion, mild disability

  • Yoga therapy to increase balance, range of motion, coordination

  • Focus on body-awareness and mindful movement 

  • Using the breath as a natural aid in movement and 'freezing'

  • Providing simple, safe yoga therapy and breathing exercises for self-care at home

  • Chairs are implemented in yoga classes on a limited basis when necessary and appropriate; however, therapeutic yoga is most beneficial when the body's senses (e.g. proprioception) are recruited and used.
