PWP and/or PWR classes going on at other YMCA’s.

  • Southern Saratoga County Y (Clifton Park) holds their class on Thursdays from 10:30 –  11:45.
  • Bethlehem Y is on Thursdays from noon – 1:15.
  • Troy Y’s class is held on Tuesdays from 10:30 – 11:45 – however, I did hear that they might suspend the class for the summer and start up again in the fall.
  • Troy’s class is taught by Sondra who actually works in the East Greenbush Y, so I assume East Greenbush also has a PWP class, but I don’t know when it is given or if it will be suspended for the summer.
  • Other Y’s  may also give these classes, but I don’t have specific information, so if you are interested, please contact the Y nearest you and inquire! If they don’t have one, and enough people request it, they may have someone trained and start one!

Yoga classes for people with Parkinson’s disease

Thursdays 10:30 – 11:30 am Honest Weight Co-op 100 Watervliet Avenue, Albany NY

In our yoga classes for people with Parkinson’s disease, we will be working with breath, movement, thought, voice, and sound. Through creative use of these branches of yoga, we will seek ease and relief from common issues associated with PD.

Caregivers are welcome to participate. The approach will be gentle, yet motivating. We will practice using chairs, with some standing movements. Modifications will be offered for those that cannot stand or have other limitations. Sneakers and loose, comfortable clothing are recommended.

For more information, call Hope Soars 518.428.0056.

Come enjoy the flow of yoga in your body, mind, and spirit. Presented By Hope Soars and Albany Medical Center
