Parkinson's Fitness Program
Supported by a grant from the Parkinson's Foundation, this program is FREE and open to anyone who has the disease. Physical exercise classes provide much help to slow the progression of Parkinson's.
- Ageless Grace - a fitness and wellness program with 21 simple exercise tools for all ages and abilities that address 21 primary aging factors in the body and five areas of the brain; anyone can practice it.
- Boxing – classes help any level of Parkinson’s or balance deficit and can actually lessen symptoms and lead to a
healthier and better quality of life.
- Spinning – riding without worrying about falling off a bike is half the battle to better heart health and lower body muscle conditioning. We’ve experienced positive results with Parkinson’s
riders reducing their tremors while riding. Using voice commands riders can improve their cognitive behavior.
- Splash - no swimming required; utilizes the resistance of water to develop strength, balance and coordination.
- Tai Chi - customized for a chair or standing, exercises guide the body through gentle, flowing poses that experts say may help movement and balance.
- Voice Therapy – a method designed to improve vocal function in patients.
- Yoga - performed in a chair or standing, utilizes poses and exercises to improve joint range of motion, flexibility, core strength, balance, posture and breathing,
