"I am inspired and enthused by van Hulsteyn's ebullient wit, humor, and positive spirit. Yoga and Parkinson's Disease is one of those much needed books that empowers, motivates, and educates people dealing with Parkinson's disease."

In wonderfully witty and humorous prose, van Hulsteyn shares her story of living with Parkinson's disease and succinctly summarizes the value of exercise, particularly yoga, for dealing with the many symptoms of this disease."

  1. I feel that most people with parkinsons are not so foreign to us. Parkinson disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disease, with Alzheimer's disease being the first. Many cases are diagnosed annually.
