One in every 100 persons over 60 will contract Parkinson's disease. Faced with an incurable and progressive disease, Parkinson's patients must relearn many everyday actions; sitting, standing, walking, lying down, speaking.

John Argue has distilled information from his classes for Parkinson's patients into a comprehensive exercise program designed to help you improve flexibility, balance, gait, and communication. Over 100 photographs illustrate the exercises, which derive from yoga and tai chi techniques and theater movement skills. Techniques in the book encompass a variety of daily activities.


A voice and movement teacher provides an exercise program designed to teach individuals with Parkinson's disease how to increase muscle strength and control, improve coordination, and take steps toward leading a fuller life.
