Pilates for Parkinson's Disease: An Instructional Handbook
Pilates for Parkinson's Disease: An Instructional Handbook is now available.
In 2006, the OHSU Parkinson Center partnered with Pilates instructor Bettina Blank to develop a class for people with Parkinson's disease. Classes are held in several locations and participants can buy an instructional handbook for the class.
The handbook has easy-to-follow instructions and pictures. If you'd like to order a copy please contact Bettina Blank at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503 504-7596. The cost is $20 for the handbook, plus $2 for shipping/handling.
