WEEKLY ADAPTIVE YOGA CLASSES FOR PARKINSON’S DISEASE

Inaugural event will take place Monday, September 9th, 2019

Community members with Parkinson’s Disease can attend yoga classes to help with

tremors, anxiety, depression and overall relaxation.

 

WHAT:                  The Michigan Parkinson Foundation is excited to announce the Inaugural Parkinson Adaptive Yoga class. The program, created by Mindy Eisenberg of Yoga Moves MS, begins on Monday, September 9th, 2019 at 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. and will run through Monday, December 16th, 2019. Yoga is wonderful for relaxation, helps manage anxiety and depression, and it can help to control tremors while increasing mobility, flexibility and strength, all of which are symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease. Community members who have Parkinson’s Disease and their care partners are invited to join Mindy Eisenberg, MHSA, C-IYAT, ERYT-500, for a fun and relaxing adaptive yoga class. If you’re interested in attending, please wear comfortable clothing. Equipment, mats and water will be provided.

The Kirk Gibson Foundation for Parkinson’s and Michigan Parkinson Foundation are also excited for the upcoming Everybody VS. Parkinson’s Gala on October 19th at the Sound Board at MotorCity Casino Hotel. The Everybody VS. Parkinson’s Gala, presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan is to raise funds to benefit the Kirk Gibson Foundation for Parkinson’s and Michigan Parkinson’s Foundation and create awareness for Parkinson’s Disease. Tickets for the Gala can be purchased on the “Everybody vs. Parkinson’s” website at www.evsp.org.
