This class will consist of a seated warm-up with deep breathing and exaggerated arm and upper body movements. The group will move into exercise brain teasers working both arm and leg exercises together, while progressively increasing our heart rates. Next we’ll stand and repeat some of the same exercises we performed in the chair on our feet with emphasis on balance, strength and coordination. We’ll cool down with some core work and gentle stretches. Sandy is a fitness trainer and has worked with the National Parkinson’s Foundation for many years.

Participate in the exercise programs  at your own risk and remember to consult with your doctor before starting a new fitness program.

Once you have registered for one class, you will be enrolled in that class each week. You do need to register for other classes other days.

Masks be worn in the building.
