One-to-one tele-yoga is safe for individuals with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and is associated with favorable mental health and quality of life (QoL) outcomes.
Why this matters
Current treatments for PD do not successfully eliminate all symptoms and individuals with PD still experience motor and non-motor symptoms that reduce QoL.
Earlier studies suggest yoga can be beneficial for people living with PD, but accessibility is limited due to mobility impairments, lack of transportation, and increased anxiety.
Understanding the value and effect of tele-yoga could improve accessibility to tele-yoga and subsequently QoL for individuals living with PD.
