Parkinson Wellness Project
...fitness classes have been specifically designed to provide multiple levels of intensity, specificity & complexity.
Our goal is to ensure whichever classes you take, they will offer the neuroprotection & neuroplasticity needed to better live with parkinson disease.
PWP classes, taken at the appropriate level, will allow you to maintain/improve your ability to:
- Get in & out of chair/car/bed with ease
- Move about the city during daily activities
- Dress independently
- Perform daily tasks
- Delay the progression of PD symptoms
Our classes are based on PWR! Basic4 moves. Incorporating large amplitude, high effort and attention to action in multiples postures (floor, hands & knees, sitting and standing) these moves target the main areas which interfere with mobility.
