Staying active and maintaining a regular exercise program throughout the disease process has been shown to be extremely beneficial for people with Parkinson’s disease. This exercise class is specifically designed for people with Parkinson’s disease and is based on the most current research and established exercise guidelines.

It includes stretching, strengthening and coordination exercises and is appropriate for people at various stages of Parkinson’s disease. If you have balance issues and regularly use an assistive device, please bring it with you to class. You may also bring a caregiver to assist you further if needed.
