Research has shown that large amplitude movements can be highly beneficial for those with Parkinsons, helping them to improve mobility, coordination and balance.

 

This class combines the PWR (Parkinsons Wellness Recovery) Moves designed by physiotherapist Dr Becky Farley with yoga stretches, breathing and vocalization. It is an opportunity to move, stretch, breathe and focus.

 

Each class will include seated (on chairs) and standing positions , so the ability to transition, either independently or with a caregiver is necessary.

 

Class size is limited to 12 participants (not including your caregiver). Please note that the instructor (Christina) is limited in the amount of attention she can provide to each individual, so if your PD is more advanced, please ensure you bring someone with you who can assist you in your movements. The ability to stand using support is a requirement for this class.

 

Newbies always welcome!
