Functional Exercise for Parkinson’s & Multiple Sclerosis
6-week (twice/week) class series from May 8 - June 21, 2019
Exercise has been shown to help gain strength, posture, balance and gait mobility in individuals with Parkinson's and Multiple Sclerosis. Join us for a 6 week group exercise series on Wednesday and Friday's to improve functional strength and balance with Pilates and Tai Chi based exercises.
We will offer a pre and post measurement to assess risk of falling and mobility along with progress made in the class.
Why is this class important to me?
One of the biggest concerns we get from our clients and patients is how balance starts to suffer and weakness in the legs especially!
Continuing to address balance and strength can be especially important in neurological conditions, such as Parkinson’s and Multiple Sclerosis. Functional exercises have been shown to reduce the risk of falling as a result of improvements in balance, muscle strength and coordination. We developed this class from principles of Tai Chi and Pilates.
It is important to gain and maintain muscle strength, flexibility and balance so that you may safely continue to be active and independent. This can be a great transition class after formal physical therapy to maintain your gains achieved with rehabilitation or even a stand-alone exercise program.
Am I appropriate for this class?
This class is titled, “Functional Exercise for Parkinson’s & Multiple Sclerosis” as we find there is a gap in group classes for these individuals. A diagnosis of Parkinson's or Multiple Sclerosis is not required.
This class is perfect if you have:
Lower limb weakness
Please contact us if you are unsure if you are appropriate for the class and you can speak directly with Danielle.
