Yoga is one of the most beneficial complementary therapies for Parkinson’s disease (PD), helping to increase flexibility, correct posture, loosen tight, painful muscles, build confidence, and in general, enhance the quality of life. Peggy van Hulsteyn, who was diagnosed with PD 12 years ago, has experienced these benefits first hand. In YOGA AND PARKINSON’S DISEASE, van Hulsteyn draws on her 40-year yoga practice, collaborating with two certified yoga teachers, to provide an accessible, easy-to-follow, and encouraging guide for bringing the benefits of yoga into your life, even if you’ve never done yoga before.


  • Step-by-step instructions and easy-to-follow photographs
  • Seated and assisted postures for those with limited mobility or unsteadiness
  • Postures that can be done in bed to help you start your day
  • Variations to ensure comfort and safety
  • Tips for making yoga practice easy, approachable, and sustainable, and much more.

“With compassion, humor, and a hard-fought perspective, van Hulsteyn has written an inspiring book and seeks to provide a practical guide to others in coping with Parkinson’s disease.”


“A must-read…Her practical tips and well-explained poses will help anyone with Parkinson’s explore ways to live as fully as possible.”

—JOYCE OBERDORF, president and CEO, National Parkinson Foundation
