YOGA and YOU
Starting May 19th a YOGA class will be offered at the Lotus House of Yoga Studio on Pacific. The class will hold 20 participants and will be every Sunday at 1p.m. Our goal is to encourage both PD patients and partners/caregivers to attend the class together! The inspiration comes from an experienced caregiver, he states;
"We would do Yoga together just once a week for an hour. I could be next to my spouse for that hour when I wasn't the caregiver, but an equal. WE could practice yoga at our own level. We would leave together encouraged, proud and smiling. We looked forward to the next class, that allowed us to be just two souls participation in our own practice, together."
We encourage you to talk to your partner and see if this class would be something for you to do on YOUR journey, together! The cost will be $30.00 for a six week session, and your caregiver can attend for free!
Jacey's studio, Fitness Works has become Fitness and Beyond! The Strength and Balance classes are continuing under her great guidance and motivation.
The class led by Larry Zier has transitioned to a stamina and stretching course beyond that of regular YOGA. They are still meeting on Tuesdays, but the time has changed.

Having an annual event, like New Years Eve or this Skate-a-thon, provides a depth of perspective. One year ago today, in the midst of hurried preparations for this event, a sudden slow down frightened me...and then taught me.
From that day's blog:
" At one point yesterday, it looked bleak. The cursor on my new computer stopped moving. At all. Suddenly without warning, I was frozen on the screen, unable to move. Tried logging out, signed back in, checked settings etc...and then that fear crept in...that it might not work again - ever. I called my son in law who walked me through trouble-shooting, and Ted jumped in to help. Once the relief set in, I realized that the process was so similar to my experience with PD.
Some small, unseen wiring that I couldn't understand, see or get at, had developed a problem. Things refused to work the way they once did..and that one tiny change threatened to hold up everything else. But with acceptance, reaching out for help, expert diagnosis, patience and persistence- we learn and move forward... while taking joy in every accomplishment."
This morning,the same computer works easily, since I have gotten more education, lots of practice and repetition...Which is just the PHD Program strives to offer, until they find the cure.
