Be in the Moment and Discover what Movement is Essential for you

biking

Biking helps me get rid of adrenaline ad is an important part of my dayly activities. By joining my bikink class i can help you with the same. You only need an indoor bike and a computer in front of you to join.

Balance

Yoga has helped me immensely to find more balance for my movement disorder. So much so that I decided to become a yoga teacher because I think it is something that can be very beneficial to many people with movement disorders.

Just Breathe

 I have my 200 hour yoga teacher training certification and also I have an additional certification which specializes me in teaching yoga for people with Parkinson’s. I was trained by a yoga therapist by the name of Theresa Conroy who has been doing yoga for the Parkinson’s foundation for more than 10 years. I am in the process of creating a free exercise program for people with movement disorders.

and heaven in a wildflower
hold infinity in the palm of your hands
and eternity in an hour.”

“it’s gentle enough that anyone can do it”

I really enjoy taking yoga classes with Jacob. With my physical limitations it has helped me with focusing on my breathing and taking breaks or stretching as needed. Also, I like the fact that it’s gentle enough that anyone can do it and if you can’t do a certain move you can modify it to what you can do. I’m so grateful that you are doing these classes ~ Thank you​

“For me, inactivity can also lead to pain and discomfort”

I’ve been attending Jake’s virtual cycling class for a little over a month now. I like cycling because it puts little pressure on my joints but is an extremely effective exercise. Virtual cycling is even better than doing it on my own, it adds a social aspect (we chat while stretching before cycling) and also adds accountability. Both things I need, especially during covid times. I had greatly decreased my activeness due to covid. For me, inactivity can also lead to joint pain and discomfort from my rheumatoid arthritis. Jake is a great teacher and has incorporated stretches into our routine tailored for each persons’ mobility.

“I am so pleased”

I am so pleased to be participating in the Virtual Yoga Class with Jacob Kidney.
This class is especially for people with movement disorders, with participants from around the world. He has shown himself to be a very caring & genuine person, who focuses on the student’s needs & abilities. He checks in prior to the class, to let us know what his plan for the class is, and if we have any concerns in being able to perform the planned activities. He is very concerned about each individual, finding that perfect balance between not pushing too far…but still challenging us to do what we are able. I enjoy the flow of the class. Starting out with a brief “how are you” & “meet other group participants”. Then class begins with relaxation breathing, yoga exercises, & some free-style movements. He plays a variety of music, has an encouraging & calming presence, while providing very clear instructions, stressing safety & modified ways to perform the movements. After class he asks how we are feeling, if we had any particularly difficult exercises, and reviews exercises we can do throughout the week. Love this class! ​
