I am finally getting around to thanking youfor the great yoga book you sent. I waited intentionally to contact youto see if Yoga works for me , IT DOES!!! After stiff, slow extensormuscles, balance is my major problem. Yoga has affected both symptomspositively. The change in slow and gradual but quite clear.The bookitself is wonderful in that it doesn't ask you to do anything you can'tdo and the illustrations are superb. Even I can Figure out the variousposes.So I've become a real convert I've even bought a classic yogaleotard. Interestingly, I think yoga does more for my problems than thestandard exercise regimien offered by our local Parkinson's supportgroup.Sooooo..... I thank you sincerely for the gift of the book and the gift of yoga as a way of treating Parkinson's symptoms. Yoga hasclearly improved the quality of my life and for this I am eternallygrateful.
I am using your yoga book with two of my clients and they love it. I amso happy to have this as a good resource. --Suzanne Uschold, LPT
I am not a Yoga fan, and always considered contorting the body intoimpossible positions to be a sure ticket to torn muscles. But, I foundRenee Le Verrier's book, Yoga for Movement Disorders fascinating, and it has gone a long way toward changing my mind. A talented writer, and aYoga instructor, Le Verrier tells the personal story of having a strokewhen she was a preteen and losing mobility on one side. Now, in laterlife, Parkinson's disease has affected her other side. A cruel blow, the ultimate double whammy, you might think. No! She plans to fightParkinson's until she draws her last breath, not in quite the same wayshe that she fought and won the battle with the stroke, but throughYoga. Yoga MD is much more than a collection and description ofexercises. The delicate touches in book, the details connecting bodywith mind and spirit, like wrinkling one's nose during a session, andgazing upward and casting one's mind to the stars, are priceless. If you ever had any doubts that Yoga can heal the mind and the spirit as wellas the body, Yoga MD is the book for you. If you never had doubts, youwill find much to reassure you. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
