Video of Chair Yoga Demonstration from the Parkinson’s Symposium

There is now video available online of the entire day of great content from the UAMS Parkinson’s Symposium.

I did a chair yoga demonstration at the event, which you can watch at this link. Look for the video labeled “Part 2,” starting at about the 2:22:30 mark. I talk a little about yoga in general and chair yoga specifically, and then we dive right into a demonstration. If you’ve always wondered what my seated chair yoga classes at the UAMS Institute on Aging are like, this is a good little taste. Enjoy!
