Yoga Class Archive

Practice yoga with Renee Le Verrier, RYT, stroke survivor, certified yoga instructor, author and person living with Parkinson's. Classes are free and will take place every Wednesday. Register for upcoming classes below.

Class Description

The aim of each class is to build strength, flexibility and balance, reduce muscle rigidity and the grip Parkinson's has on body as well as spirit. The instructor modifies traditional poses, adapts flows and restructures the standard yoga class format to target physical needs, and bring balance to life with Parkinson's.

Each 45-minute class focuses on areas particular to Parkinson's. Supports - chair, wall, cushion, block, blanket - aid balance and reduce the fear of falling. This clears the mind for opportunities to notice areas of strength. Classes include a mix of the following
  • demonstration and step-by-step movements with variations (such as seated or standing)
  • cues on how, what and where to notice yoga's effects
  • relaxation techniques 
  • tips to try
  • ways to apply yoga to everyday activities
Since the class is live, on-the-spot strategies for "off" times, dyskinesia and dystonia weave through each class.
