PWR!Moves Parkinson’s Recovery

This program is currently on hold.

The essential principles of PWR!Moves are to support progressive aerobics and Parkinson’s Disease-specific functional skills through personalized coaching and wellness education to overcome non-motor symptoms, stress and the inactivity that interferes with physical capacity and quality of life.

PWR!Moves exercises are performed with large amplitude, high effort and attention to action in multiple postures that specifically target antigravity extension, weight shifting, axial mobility and transitional movements… skills shown by research to interfere with mobility in people with Parkinson’s Disease. The exercises can be adapted for disease severity as well as to target different symptoms.

Our classes meet each Tuesday and Thursday at 11 a.m. Class size is limited. The cost is $30 for a six-week session. 

Clients must meet minimum requirements to be eligible for PWR!Moves classes, which is the ability to walk 350 feet independently (or have a care provider present for assistance). A letter of referral from the client’s physician is required. Please call McDowell Wellness Center at (859) 936-9355 for more information.
