Total Brain & Body
Brain and Body
Our brainwork focus in this class is on memory and cognition using multitasking, sequencing and other brain and body challenges. We will still work balance, posture, strength, coordination and joint mobility. Join this class if you need a little help with balance, are able to get out of a chair without assistance, need a bit of help getting down to the floor and can understand verbal instructions. We will show modifications to make it less challenging, or more intense.
Join this class for a rigorous workout that also focuses on symptom-specific exercises for Parkinson’s, which are also great for everyone as we age. We will get up and down from the floor and perform strength/core exercises designed to challenge you. This workout targets participants that rarely struggle with balance and can sustain 80 – 85% heart rate elevation for short periods.
Easy Movin’ It
This class works on balance, posture, walking, rotation, multitasking, and freezing. Brainwork exercises focus on symptoms specific to Parkinson’s disease, but anyone will find these beneficial, especially as we age. Core and body strengthening are always included. If you struggle with falls, need a little help getting out of a chair or off the floor, or use a cane/walker, this class is for you. We will show modifications to make it more challenging or less intense.
This mid-high intensity class incorporates complete body movements while challenging the mind, focusing on the core. Throughout the class, the instructor will guide you through a comprehensive warm-up and then introduce a set of basic movements like lunges and squats. The movements included in the set will build as the class progresses, adding and subtracting attributes to challenge balance, body control, strength, and flexibility. Basic equipment such as hand weights, a chair, cushion or towel, and wall space are regularly used.
