NEW YOGA AND MOVEMENT for PARKINSON'S
Connect mind and body to facilitate fluid movement. The best principles of the nationally acclaimed Dance for PD program and Kundalini Yoga combine in this non-intimidating class.  No experience necessary. Care aides welcome. Join anytime.

Instructor Anne O’Sullivan,
Dance for PD and Kundalini Yoga instructor

"My enthusiasm for physical expression began with a Eurythmics class when I was 11.  My training and then coaching expanded to gymnastics, figure skating and track & field. Over the past 30 years I have studied various forms of dance and creative movement. In addition to being registered as a BCRPA Personal Trainer and Older Adult Fitness Leader I am a certified Kundalini Yoga and Songshine instructor, and have training in Dance for PD  (with Mark Morris). I have a passion for helping people find creative ways to improve fitness level and gain greater strength, coordination and movement fluidity specifically those post-stroke, or with Alzheimer's  or Parkinson’s."
