FALLBROOK – North County Parkinson's Support Group Fallbrook invites anyone interested to join their monthly Parkinson's Support Group meeting, Friday, Oct. 22, 10 a.m. at the Fallbrook Regional Wellness Center, 1636 E. Mission Road.
In an effort to keep all in attendance safe, they will adhere to the latest public health guidelines. In addition, since they have a vulnerable population, they will abide by the NCPSG board's adopted guidelines of full vaccination to attend support group meetings. Masks are optional, unless mandated by local health authorities.
This month's speaker is Leslie Salmon and she will talk about therapeutic yoga, "Access Your Optimal Strength & Spirit." She is a 10-year resident of Fallbrook and has been teaching yoga for 20 years. In Fallbrook, she conducts four classes each week at Sage Yoga, one being a Therapeutic Yoga class designed for those struggling with a challenge.
Yoga Therapy is a healing practice, using the tools of yoga to assist clients as they deal with the challenges life offers. During her training to become a yoga therapist, Salmon presented several papers and presentations on Parkinson’s disease. A lifelong student, she finds the practice of yoga therapy to be helpful in creating strength, balance, agility and flexibility for all.
Break out groups held for a time of sharing, coffee and refreshments will follow the program. Our meeting is held in support of persons with Parkinson's disease, care partners and people interested in improving the world of those affected by Parkinson’s disease.
