I connect remotely with a group of physical therapists and Pilates trainers in Oregon who meet regularly to share work and current research coming out of the Parkinson Center of Oregon at Oregon Science and Health University. Initial research has been published in a study in the journal Physical Therapy. I use this study as a resource in tailoring programs for clients with PD.
Moving Body Pilates has teamed with a wonderful local dance company, Invertigo Dance Theatre, to design a dance class for people with PD called Dancing Through PD. The founding teaching artists have all trained with the Mark Morris Dance Group/Brooklyn Parkinsons Group Dance for PD program.
