An event every week that begins at 1:30 pm on Thursday, repeating until April 30, 2021
Mindful Movement with PD – Chair Based: Online
Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery (PWR) Moves, balance/fall prevention strategies, and cognitive challenge offer variety each week to address PD challenges. The PWR!Moves are done in both sitting and standing positions (depending on individual abilities). We include short high-intensity activity (sitting or standing as appropriate) as well as some cognitive challenges and voice work. We also address individual issues (e.g. getting a sweater on and off, turning over in bed, getting in and out of a car, etc).
This class is best for individuals who walk with assisted devices, have greater balance challenges (falls), can be on feet for shorter periods of time, are not able to get up from the floor, and/or have some cognitive and communication challenges. Care Partner assistance generally required for computer set-up and possibly assisting during the class.
Class is recorded and link shared with participants to encourage practice during the week. NEW students may try one class session at no cost.
