Meditation is a beautiful ancient healing practice that can be performed by everyone.
Simply put, the definition of Mindful Meditation is: Paying Attention to the Present Moment with Curiosity and Non Judgement. With our lives becoming faster and more complex, this gentle yet powerful practice can deeply affect our wellbeing and peace of mind. We can think of Mindful Meditation as having the mentality of becoming fully present with your experiences and to fully be yourself. We are all unique and through this practice we can work on cultivating kindness and patience with ourselves, healing challenges, emotional and physical issues and create clarity in our lives.

I feel very grateful to be working in this field of business where movement and lifestyle can play an important role in people’s overall wellbeing. My Mom, who lives with me, has Parkinson’s. Doing what I can to help keep her healthy is so important. One of the major issues with Parkinson’s is that falling becomes more of a risk.
Chair/Gentle Yoga can really help to strengthen legs and back muscles plus improve flexibility so that day to day movements are easier and confidence is improved. This gentle practice can help to ward off rigidity, muscle spasms and weakness that all can be associated with Parkinson’s. I have found working with my clients at their own pace, they feel improved balance and range of motion as they become and feel stronger and more mobile. Strengthening and becoming aware of your posture and being able to make little adjustments is critical.
Through Yoga Pranayama (breathwork) and Mindful Meditation, anxiety, depression and stress can all be reduced and an improvement in concentration and motor symptoms of the disease. I have found that Mindful Meditation is an extremely powerful practice as it can be useful both physically and mentally for the people in your life as well as for your Parkinson’s symptoms. The mind body connection is a strong force that can gently calm and reduce tremors specially during times of stress.
When combining both Gentle Chair Yoga and Mindful Meditation into your weekly ritual to help manage your Parkinson’s, you will feel stronger, have increased mobility and feel more centered helping to create peace and calm within. Keep moving, have fun and remember this is your practice and your pace.
