PD Exercise

Exercise is an important part of healthy living for everyone. For people with Parkinson’s disease (PD), exercise is more than healthy — it is a vital component to maintaining balance, mobility and activities of daily living. Exercise and physical activity can improve many PD symptoms. These benefits are supported by research.  - Parkinson.org

Neuromotor Wellness
The prevalence of chronic illness diagnosis has increased in the United States in the last decade; a study by Johns Hopkins showed that 25% of the US population has been diagnosed with some sort of chronic illness. According to the Mayo Clinic "Aerobic exercise can help to improve your heart health and endurance and aid in weight loss. Strength training can improve muscle strength and endurance, make it easier to do daily activities, slow disease-related declines in muscle strength, and provide stability to joints. Flexibility exercises may help you to have optimal range of motion about your joints, so they can function best, and stability exercises may help reduce the risk of falls."

Time: 11/17/2021 9:30am-10:45am

Tai Chi for Arthritis - online course is gentle and good for developing balance

"I started taking Tai Chi for Arthritis last year and just signed up for the fall/winter session. It is great for balance and intentionally does not have any of the wonky or sudden moves that I've encountered in traditional Tai Chi. This course is offered by SUNY Stony Brook and is free and open to anyone. The more the merrier on Zoom! Below is more info from Stony Book and the link to sign up. They also have other fall prevention courses." - Leah

The workshops are offered 2 days/week for 8 weeks (16 classes).

The schedule and registration links are available on : https://trauma.stonybrookmedicine.edu/falls_programs

Please feel free to share this information with family/friends who may be interested in joining us too. All workshops are held in Eastern Time (NY).
