Parkinson’s Exercise Classes – Neuro-Ability and PWR!Moves: Two courses coming up, starting on Thursday October 27th and Monday November 7th

We are pleased to announce two courses starting soon that have proven to be very useful for those living with Parkinson’s Disease.

The series of classes follows the effective Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery approach (PWR!Moves) developed by Dr. Becky Farley, a physical therapist, neuroscientist and Parkinson exercise specialist. These classes directly target foundational skills shown by research to become impaired in PD and that interfere with everyday mobility.

Taught by our own Neuro-Ability physiotherapists who are certified in PWR!Moves instruction, the course involves two parts:

  1. One individual, 1 hour session with the physiotherapist instructing the series. You will be assessed and receive personal instruction to the specific PWR!moves that will allow you to maximize results.  This session will provide you with a personalized strategy to pursue during the group classes and at home.
    • This is not required if you have participated in a Neuro-Ability Parkinson’s Class in the last 8 months.
  2. Eight group classes (1 hour each) taught by Naomi Casiro and Steph Graetz, both are Neuro-Ability physiotherapists who are certified to instruct PRW!Moves

There will be two series starting soon:

  1. Monday Series: November 7th – December 19th (7 classes).
    • 5:45-6:45 pm
    • Physiotherapist: Naomi Casiro
  2. Thursday Series: October 27th – December 22nd (8 classes)
    • 5:45-6:45 pm
    • Note: There will be no class December 8th
    • Physiotherapist: Steph Graetz
