This teaches Parkinson’s specific exercise routines to a small group (4 to 6) and is run by Caroline McGuire, a very experienced physiotherapist with expert knowledge of Parkinson’s. Sessions begin with a warm-up to music then participants work through a circuit of six specially-chosen exercises that can be adapted to suit and made more challenging as people progress.
For maximum benefit, those attending should work at home with a hand-out of stretching exercises designed to fit in with daily activities. Participants can return for a repeat course of sessions
Feedback from those who have attended is enthusiastic and includes improvement in all-over mobility and flexibility, a lifting of the spirits as well as enjoyment of the camaraderie of the group.
Unfortunately we are not presently able to schedule further courses, although we hope to do so in the future.
