The online extension to our wellness program for people with Parkinson's. After over 9 years of teaching Parkinson's specific exercise classes, we are excited to to bring these classes online to increase access to the global Parkinson's community.
Our classes are designed based on the latest research principles, our clinical experience, and feedback from the hundreds of individuals with Parkinson's who have participated in our classes.
Our newest class! We love the PWR! Moves and we don't want to give them up, but we do want to incorporate more strengthening exercises into our PWR! Moves Class.
So welcome to PWR! Moves + Strength Class!
We will still do most of our basic PWR! Moves plus some of our variations in our typical positions (sitting, standing, all 4s, on our stomach and back) and then we will add strengthening in different positions! We will focus on functional strengthening which means we use our own body weight for resistance so you don't need special equipment! If we are using something for class, we will let you know at the beginning of class! We minimize use of equipment though, since we know not everyone has things at home to use!
Remember - modify as needed. Don't do anything that doesn't feel safe. Use support as needed during standing exercises and use a chair for getting down on the ground and back up if you need it!
-Sturdy chair without arms
-Yoga Mat for the floor
-Workout towel for stretching and in case you break a sweat!
-Light Hand Weights (1-3 lbs) or something similar!
