Last month, my Movement Disorders doctor, Indu Subramanian, asked me to write about my experiences with yoga and PD for the Brian Grant Foundation’s Power Through Project. She worked with a yoga instructor to produce videos for the website about the benefits of yoga for People with Parkinson’s. My story and Dr. Subramanian’s videos are now up on the Power Through Project website.
Sunday, we had another great meeting for Women living with PD in Los Angeles. Invertigo Dance Theater’s Sofia Klass and Linda Berghoff (also a PWP) teach Dancing Through Parkinson’s in various locations around LA. They led us through dance sequences designed specifically for people with Parkinson’s Disease. Special thanks to the The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills for hosting us. I had the opportunity to interview 2 more women about their experiences with Parkinson’s. This has been a great way to share our journeys with other women and to help all of us better understand this disease that is changing our lives. I will post their interviews later this week.
Have a great week.
