Thom is signing up for another 5K! Go Thom!!

Dr. Becky Farley explains why you need the multi-level classes in a Parkinson's program and an assessment which is provided in the PWR! Virtual Experience. We want you to be successful!

Parkinson's is different for everyone. We've researched it, pioneered PD-specific treatment, and joined our clients on their journeys.

We know each person with Parkinson's is experiencing the disease and its effects differently.

That means we have to incorporate everything we know in order to build a program that's effective for all people with PD.

For more than a decade, we've been training PWR!Moves Certified Professionals across the United States and the world.

Now, we're sharing this expertise with you directly,
and we're thrilled to have you join us for the PWR! Virtual Experience.

This Month's Specialty Class

Dance with PD

Join Debbie Braganza every Friday in May and June from 1-2pm (AZ Time)

Dance for PD classes invite people with Parkinson’s to experience the joys and benefits of dance while creatively addressing symptom-specific concerns related to balance, cognition, motor skill, depression, and physical confidence. This program uses dance to empower people with Parkinson’s and their care partners and families to explore movement and music in ways that are refreshing, enjoyable, stimulating, and creative.

The program’s fundamental working principle is that professionally-trained dancers are movement experts whose knowledge about balance, sequencing, rhythm and aesthetic awareness is useful to persons with PD. In class, teaching artists integrate movement from modern, ballet, tap, folkloric, traditional and social dancing, and choreographic repertory to engage participants’ minds and bodies and create an enjoyable, social environment for artistic exploration.

AND THEN MY LEGS STOPPED WORKING
