Indra Jury


Tutoring in:  Yoga
 
Indra is originally from Mauritius but came to Adelaide 40 years ago to study physiotherapy and has since worked in Australia and England as a physiotherapist and an occupational health and safety consultant.  Since retiring 6 years ago, Indra has moved to Melbourne to be closer to her daughter and her twin grandsons.
Indra was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2004 but has continued to live an active life.  She developed an interest in yoga, finding that the focus on strength, balance and flexibility coupled with yoga’s breathing and meditative techniques significantly improved her symptoms, in particular her mobility and concentration.
She completed a Certificate of Yoga Teacher Training in 2010. Drawing on her experience as a physiotherapist, a certified yoga instructor and a person living with Parkinson’s, Indra  has adapted elements of yoga practice to address the needs of people living with movement disorders.  In 2012 she taught the Yoga for People Living with Movement Disorders course through Parkinson’s Victoria and she is excited at the opportunity to teach this course more broadly through U3A.
Living with a chronic illness affects body , mind and spirit and Indra believes strongly that yoga has a holistic approach that addresses those needs.
