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’s.
All PWP FIT! classes are set in a welcoming, supportive environment where the focus is on functional movement, balance, strength, endurance, cognition and FUN! Classes are taught by certified instructors with training in Parkinson's disease. The exercises are based on the PWR!Moves researched and taught by Dr Becky Farley. They incorporate large amplitude, high effort and attention to action in multiple postures to target the main areas which can interfere with mobility.
PWP FIT! 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
Perform daily tasks
Delay the progression of PD symptoms
