The mission of the Houston Area Parkinson Society is to improve the quality of life for those affected by Parkinson's disease through services, education and advocacy.

Due to an overwhelming response to a Summer Lecture Series presentation on yoga in 2012, HAPS added its own yoga class in the Houston area. There are many benefits of practicing yoga in relation to Parkinson's disease, including possible improved respiratory functions, posture, muscle mobility, cognitive functions, mood and balance and movement. HAPS yoga classes focus on utilizing breathing techniques with controlled movements to help manage the symptoms of Parkinson's.

For more information on yoga for Parkinson's, call Angelica Rodriguez at 713-313-1652.
