According to the National Institute on Aging, Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a brain disorder that leads to shaking, stiffness, and difficulty with walking, balance, and coordination. It may start gradually and get worse over time. Parkinson’s can also affect mood, memory, sleep, and mental function. Although medications are often used to treat Parkinson’s, research has found that exercise can significantly improve the symptoms of PD.
If you have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease or have trouble with balance, posture, shaking, or moving comfortably, we can help!
We teach movement classes for people who have Parkinson’s. If want to learn more about how music, movement, and community can help, join one or more of our FREE Workshops.
Each workshop features two activities and gives you a chance to try them in a safe, comfortable atmosphere.
