Moving Better with Parkinson’s: The Alexander Technique

The Alexander Technique is a method that teaches you to be more aware of your body, and can help improve posture and movement. The Technique can teach people with Parkinson’s how to better manage physical symptoms; improve posture, balance and gait; and more. The method can also be used to reduce anxiety and stress and increase confidence. Join us for an overview of the Technique and how it can be beneficial to people with Parkinson’s, with certified Alexander Technique teachers Shula Sendowski and Julie Shelton.
