Workshop - October 25th, 2015 in Denver, Colorado

Below are links to four audio recordings, comprising a complete three-hour workshop on "Mindful Movement for Parkinson's" done at "A Living Arts Centre" in Denver, Colorado on October 25th, 2015.

The recordings are given in the order in which we did them, starting with the "Opening meditation" and ending with the "Mindfulness body scan."

The lessons build on each other thematically, and you may hear me make reference to a prior lesson from time to time, but they are also intended to stand alone.

Apologies for occasional microphone static - I was using a new microphone and didn't realize how much sound it would pick up from my clothing!

Balance #2, Safe and Dynamic Walking - Developing Awareness of Weight Shift and Soles of the Feet

In this forty-three minute lesson, we explore balance in walking through awareness of the soles of the feet and the availability of the ankles, knees, and hip joints to adjust in movement. The lesson is mostly done standing and walking, with interludes sitting in a chair. The ideal set-up for this lesson is a chair (with a back), and enough space to walk around or back and forth in the room.
