A woman is performing a yoga chair exercise.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 Yoga with Chairs classes for FREE using a video conferencing app called 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. We offer two options for yoga.

Yoga with Chairs class is designed for people who need more postural support and may use walkers and wheelchairs to get around. The class will include many of the same movements as the Monday class but at a slower pace and with more support. Partners and care givers are encouraged to take the class also.
