Tuesdays 11:00am-12:00pm Breathe, Balance and Gait with Judith Sachs   

“Learn to balance, seated and standing, and feel secure as you breathe, shift weight and experiment safely with movement in all directions. This class will help you align your body and mind for better balance, then take you across the floor with a variety of options for slow, quick, turning, and pivoting gait. You can take class in the chair and still benefit. Bring a tennis ball and a Kleenex box or water bottle (any object about 8” high) and learn to redefine what it means to take a breath and stand on your own two feet.”      Meeting ID: 819 6657 5515

Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery is a therapy-based fitness program. The Basic 4 PWR! Moves are designed to target skills known to deteriorate in people with Parkinson’s disease. The PWR! Moves can be practiced in multiple positions, made progressively more physically and cognitively challenging, and be used differently to target each person’s unique symptoms individually. 

You will be challenged physically and cognitively while working on strength, balance, agility, aerobics, and flexibility. Better yet, you will have fun!
