That's A Fact: Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured. -  B.K.S. Iyengar
Parkinson's disease can give you a new perspective on life. Share it.

Don't forget to join us for Tanika Houston from the Riverside Wellness & Fitness Center. Tanika will provide an instructional Chair Yoga class on Wednesday, May 23. The word 'yoga' means to yoke or join together - uniting the mind, body and spirit. Joining physical poses with the breath, action with thought, and awareness with intention can bring peace to the body, mind and spirit.

MS Support

The MS Support Group: helpful, hopeful and monthly! That's A Fact: Heat intolerance is a common condition and can cause an exacerbation of symptoms. So, during these summer months, use fans, air conditioning, cool drinks, and icy compresses to keep cool. Stay cool whenever possible.

Please join us on May 22 for a group discussion. It's a good opportunity to share your story, with all its achievements, challenges, hopes and frustrations, with individuals who understand the challenges of managing MS. Those who have lived with MS for a while can be a big help to newly diagnosed individuals by contributing something you know, or some coping strategy you use, that can make a significant difference in someone else's life.

Additionally, we will talk about getting ready for the summer months, strategies, cooling vests and programs that can help get equipment for MS patients.

Please note: we are back to our original meeting room - the neurosciences conference room in the Riverside Medical Office Building.
