Some words from Yoga students & partners of People with Parkinson’s
These enjoyable classes have become an integral part of my Parkinson’s treatment, second only to my prescribed NHS medication.
Tara’s yoga-time twice-weekly yoga sessions are physio sessions for people like me with Parkinson’s disease. These yoga sessions are specially designed for us and with the help of some great music our hearts and lungs get a great workout too. Whilst I chose to stand up , (when my Parkinson’s balance issues allow me to do so), others may sit in a chair, most of us do the lying-down (floormat) moves which I find is very safe and relaxing. I also love the fact that I have taken up cycling and going to the gym and I am really enjoy Sporty Fridays, table tennis is a really hit!

“The words that spring most to mind from my patients are that Tara’s yoga classes manage to make exercise interesting, relaxing and social even though it is actually a form of treatment for Parkinson’s. Keep up the good work (everybody)!
Dr A. Espley MB.ChB the former Parkinson’s Disease and Associate Specialist in Elderly Care at St Mark’s Community Health Clinic Maidenhead
Tara’s yoga sessions are very enjoyable, lots of fun, and very beneficial for people with Parkinsons. The exercise class is especially designed to to make every session safe and beneficial for us. I have been attending the class once a week with my wife for years!
The social dynamics of the class are friendly, informal and relaxed, whilst being professional, safe, and effective. Thank you Tara.
Carers and partners are welcomed to participate, whilst keeping an eye on our ‘patient/ partner’. As a wife of someone with Parkinson’s it give me an opportunity to keep myself strong and supple too. Facilities at the venue are ideal and car parking is well served plenty of nearby ‘disabled parking’. Janice F
Many patients with Parkinson’s have posture and balance problems brought on by the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. It is a constant challenge to counter these issues. Don’t let the challenge put you off. Enjoy the Yoga, and the posture and balance improvements may follow. ‘Ginny The Carer ‘
Don’t be put off by the early aches and pains, we are all creaky to start with but it gets easier and you will be amazed at what you can do, rather than what you can’t!
The Parkinson’s group appreciate all the chosen yoga instructors that Tara has chosen to keep these class running every week of the year ( except National holidays). They are all very special and we enjoy the personalised-differences and the group teaching of each of our different teaches.
