I really enjoy the DVD. It doesn't take much of my time to do it 3 times a day. It's worth every penny spent, which isn't very much compared to other DVD's. I took the DVD to my doctor. He was impressed and told me to keep doing it 3 times a day. The deep breathing has helped with anxiety and the yoga moves with the cramping. Thank you for putting this product out there for PD community. --Mom of 11
finally I found something I could use
Remaning active, mobile, and at peace with my body is very important to a Parkinson patient. I have looked at and tried so many different things but, until I received this DVD and began to use it, I saw no improvement in that area. The author is patient and it is so helpful to find someone who has PK and understands the symtoms. It is worth a million to have it to help me stretch and be at peace with my body. I would reccomend this to anyone with any type of movement disorder. --Pat
Yoga made Easy
I have tried yoga and was a bit discouraged with the difficulty in poses. I have PD and when I used your video I couldn't believe how easy you made it seem and also I did not lose my balance. Your calm demeanor and perfect instructions make this a great addition to my daily routine. Thank you so much. You are an angel! --E. Patterson-fontaine
