offering a choice for managing personal health and well being

Follow us

Yellow River Center is a non-profit organization formed in 2012 to offer “workshops without walls” and retreat experiences to help participants learn practical ways to manage stress in everyday life. Our teaching is based on scientific studies that blend contemporary brain research with time-honored techniques from traditional contemplative meditation. Fortuitously, our founders were presented an opportunity to bring tai chi to the Parkinson’s community just as we were in the process of getting off the ground, and the overwhelming response to our pilot program inspired us to focus our resources on this worthy cause.

 

Our goal is to offer free or low-cost tai chi workshops to people with Parkinson’s disease and their caregivers throughout the Atlanta metro area.
