“Yoga and Parkinson’s disease” is a practical, how-to guide for using yoga to manage stress, improve mental alertness, increase flexibility, correct posture and improve the quality-of-life of readers with Parkinson’s. The book chronicles the author’s own experience as well as research studies that document a correlation between yoga practice and better health after a Parkinson’s disease diagnosis. More than simply an exercise guide, the book is a soothing form of moving meditation and physical activity that provide a safe, effective way to rebuild strength, stamina, and flexibility.
