My husband and I live in Lakewood, Colorado and he has had Parkinson's for almost 4 years. For the past few years he has participated in a yoga class for people with Parkinson's and it has been a blessing. Not only the physical movement, but also the social aspect. They all have become a family and fully understand each other's situations and challenges. The instructor, Joann Gibson, donates her time and the yoga studio in Golden donates the space. The class meets twice a week for an hour each class.
Recently, an interested party video-taped the class, interviewed the participants, etc. and released a DVD titled "Stretching Life", Challenging Parkinson's & Breathing Through Life's Challenges. It is a most inspiring story and worth watching over and over.
The website is www.challengingparkinsons.com and the DVD can be purchased through the site. Or, you can view excerpts from the DVD on the website.
I am a caregiver, as I'm sure many others are, and my prayers and thoughts are with those who have this disease and the many caregivers out there. We only hope and pray that a cure is discovered in the very near future.
