Has anyone attended the retreat at Krapula in Stockbridge, Ma? It is in conjunction with the Parkinson's Foundation. I am not sure how this helps? I can see that stress is aweful for my PD, but not sure how this immersion will help.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

My husband has PD. He has not attended the Yoga Retreat in MA but has participated in week-long exercise programs for people with PD. The benefits were many! A chance to get in-depth guidance from professionals and time to immerse yourself in exercise that, for my husband, really makes a difference in his symptoms was a very beneficial experience. Here's a link to the program he attended, you can search for clinicians in other parts of the country on the webpage.

If you go to the Yoga Retreat, keep us posted on your experience!

​this retreat is in Stockbridge Ma. The location is Kripalu. They work in conjunction with the Parkinson's foundation providing a week long program called healthy living. Check out their website and the program. Good luck.

I had the great pleasure of attending the PD Yoga retreat at Kirpallu. It was fantastic - everyone with PD should attend this. They had seminars with neurologists, nurses and pharmaceutical companies. And the YOGA was wonderful!
