In collaboration with Neuro Challenge Foundation for Parkinson's, Boomers N Motion is excited to offer this
chair-based exercise class to individuals with Parkinson's and their caregivers.


Have FUN and groove to the music through a variety of seated routines and exercises specially chosen to address the needs of those dealing with Parkinson’s disease.  This chair-based class format consists of a warm-up followed by a heart-pumping aerobics routine.  Many of the choreographed movements mimic activities of daily living, and fun chants are encouraged.  This leads to the second phase of the class that may include exercises to improve muscular strength, grip strength and hand dexterity, or balance training (in the standing position).  The class concludes with a gentle stretching routine.


What to Bring: Two hand weights (soup cans or bottles of water also work) and water to drink during the class

This class is open to all individuals with Parkinson’s disease and their caregivers.
