Event description

Description

Parkinson’s Movement Class

These classes are based on the Methods of John Argue and have been designed specifically for those with Parkinson’s disease. His approach combines yoga, tai-chi and dance, improving flexibility, strength, balance and overall coordination. This method is known to help prevent falls, improve facial expressiveness and improve intelligibility of speech. His proven strategy for coping with Parkinson’s is to “develop an artful way of moving and speaking,” one that is “graceful, mindful and complete.”

For more information about the John Argue Method visit www.JohnArgue.com. The Vancouver movement class runs for 10 weeks. Always check with your physician before starting any exercise program.

Donations are encouraged to help sustain this and other programs for the community.

The purpose of this movement class is to help improve balance, flexibility and strength! While attending this class you have the opportunity to gauge your fitness abilities. Week 1 and Week 10 of this class, we will be conducting a low impact fitness assessment. This will be a helpful and safe experience! We welcome and encourage care partners to attend as well. Prior to the assessment, we will give a detailed overview of what this entails and how it can help you! This is not required to attend the class.
