Join Our Online Dynamic Yoga Class

A woman is attending an online yoga class.Have you ever considered trying out a Wellness Works class sponsored by the Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Center at BIDMC? You can now participate in Online Dynamic Yoga classes for FREE using Zoom.

Yoga is an adaptable practice, with both functional and psychosocial benefits that can be suited to a variety of abilities. Yoga moves all the joints and muscles in your body. It improves posture, balance and gait. Yoga deepens your breathing and your body awareness. It gives you greater physical confidence and peace of mind. With creative support of props like chairs and the ballet barre, simple postures can be accessible and enjoyable to most everyone.

Students in the Dynamic Yoga class need to feel comfortable standing and getting up and down from the floor. We will practice standing poses to strengthen legs and spinal support along with twists, gentle back bends and balancing poses. Class will begin and close with awareness practices and time to rest and integrate the movement.
