Six-Week Online Parkinson's Exercise Class
Due to social distancing efforts during the COVID-19 outbreak, many exercise programs have been cancelled until further notice. We recognize that exercise is a key component to improving and maintaining function in individuals living with Parkinson's disease. Regular exercise helps to improve balance, strength, mobility, gait, and overall physical function, and can also help combat the depression, fatigue, and apathy associated with the disease.
This series is being offered to allow you to exercise from the comfort and safety of your home while connecting with others.
The first 4 sessions will be geared towards individuals who are able to walk and stand without assistance, as well as have the ability to get up and down off the ground. The last 2 sessions will be done in seated and supported standing positions. These sessions are best suited to those who may have restricted mobility or balance issues and require use of a walker, cane, or wheelchair.
Please note: Class participation will be done at your own risk within your home. Please ensure you have the space needed to follow the exercises and that there are no obstacles or barriers in your way. Parkinson Society BC (PSBC) and NeuroFit BC will not be held liable for accidents or incidents that may occur in your home. By participating in this series you are recognizing that risk of illness and/or injury may be inherent in any movement or exercise class and are participating with the express agreement of, and understanding that NeuroFit BC, Parkinson Society BC and its directors, officers, employees, partners, and agents are hereby released from any and all claims, costs, liabilities, expenses, or judgments associated with this exercise for Parkinson's program.
