We completed a pilot study of an eight-week Merging Yoga and OT for Parkinson’s Disease program (MY-OT for PD). MY-OT for PD was a fall-risk self-management program that merged community-based yoga and group OT. Participants served as their own controls during the pilot study. During the intervention period (as compared to the control period), participants experienced reduced self-reported falls, improved fall management and prevention, and improved balance.
