WE’RE HERE TO HELP YOU KEEP MOVING!

All classes begin with participants seated and then progressing to standing, if able.

There is always the option to remain seated with variations provided for standing and moving throughout the class space.

The positive social component of getting together in person for Parkinson’s Fitness classes is enormous! According to the national CDC, people with stronger social connections find help with improving the ability to recover from stress, anxiety, and depression; promoting healthy eating, physical activity, and weight; improving sleep, well-being, and quality of life.

All are welcome to attend any of our free in-person classes! If poor weather or community events make attending questionable, confirm weekly class availability by phoning the listed locations in advance.

IN-PERSON: Face masks are no longer mandatory, and their use is a participant’s choice.
