Parkinson’s Programs

Parkinson’s Network Program

Parkinson’s Network classes start with the repetitive training of four foundational skills that underlie everyday function and that become impaired in Parkinson’s Disease. They are always performed with HIGH EFFORT for bigger and faster movements while directing your attention on “how it feels” to use your full movement potential. The emphasis is on learning what “optimal function” feels like so that you learn to move bigger and faster in your everyday life. You will then you be challenged both physically and cognitively so that you “use it and improve it.” 

It is a 12-week program that will meet twice per week for 60 minutes and will incorporate a variety of exercises and introductions to group exercise classes. Participants must be 18 years old, provide a medical clearance form and be independently mobile or have someone present to assist them.
