Mindful Movement for Parkinson's - A Podcast and Audio Library

Donate to Support the Podcast

Welcome to the Mindful Movement for Parkinson's podcast and audio library. In this podcast, I offer mindful movement lessons designed to help people with Parkinson's Disease increase ease of movement, improve range of movement, and develop skills for the betterment of quality of life. The lessons are based on the Feldenkrais Method® of movement education, as well as mindfulness techniques such as body scans and guided meditations.

Many of the installments are recorded directly for the podcast, while others are recorded during live sessions (this is why you may occasionally hear me addressing someone during a recording.)

Most in-person movement lessons - such as Feldenkrais classes or yoga classes - cost about $10-$15. I have decided to offer these lessons free of charge, because I want them to be available for people with Parkinson's regardless of ability to pay.

Offering this podcast entails monetary costs as well as a significant investment of my time and attention. If you benefit from this resource and can afford to make a donation, please do so! Thanks very much  -   Matt Zepelin

 

 

Guidelines for Mindful Movement Lessons

In this thirteen-minute installment of the podcast, I give guidelines for doing the mindful movement lessons in a safe and effective manner, including positions and props, addressing issues like tremor and dystonia, and where to direct your attention throughout a lesson. If you are familiar with guidelines from the Feldenkrais Method, you might skip this introduction. Otherwise, please take the time to listen to this so as to maximize the benefit of these lessons.
