Certified instructor Camille Torgeson is leading The Art of Moving Exercises for PD and movement disorders in Camarillo and Ventura sponsored by SCAN. Thanks to Camille, Steve and Patty for sharing.

John Argue’s The Art of Moving Exercises for PD is different from most other exercise programs because so much of it is aimed at developing a mental ability. In Parkinson’s, previous automatic actions are no longer reliable, so you need to learn to move and speak consciously. Argue explains that the overall strategy for coping with whatever Parkinson’s symptoms come along is to develop an artful way of moving and speaking. An artful action is one that is graceful, mindful, and complete. Participants in The Art of Moving Exercises for PD practice ways to bring these qualities to everyday tasks such as walking, turning, sitting down, standing up, and reaching.

“The John Argue Method is an artful approach to movement for people with PD that theoretically addresses the underlying motor control deficits associated with PD. Through his background in acting, yoga and Tai Chi, John Argue has developed an approach that naturally

  1. improves body awareness (gracefulness)
  2. increases conscious effort (mindfulness)
  3. eliminates dual tasks (completeness)

In addition, his use of humor and emotion illustrate the interactive role of the basal ganglia in motor, cognitive, and motivational systems. In Argue’s “Dance with the Dragon”, art and science unite.” Becky G. Farley, PhD, PT
