With the current coronavirus pandemic, stress and anxiety levels are extremely high, especially for people with Parkinson’s. Around 40% of people with Parkinson’s will experience anxiety at some point during their illness and so it is super important that health and wellbeing is prioritised during this difficult time.
A clinical trial in Hong Kong has shown that Mindfulness Yoga can be beneficial in reducing anxiety amongst people with Parkinson’s. Mindfulness yoga mixes yoga with meditation and controlled breathing. It is different to many traditional yoga practices in that there is less of a focus on the exact posture achieved and more focus on body/mind awareness rather than the ‘perfect’ pose.
