The PWR! Moves are amplitude based exercises, designed specifically to address the changes that commonly occur for people with Parkinson's. People experience different symptoms, to different degrees, but it is very common for people to experience a change in their posture, balance, trunk flexibility and transitions. We work on moving better, directly counteracting these changes in all different positions!
This class is a great place to start!
Claire discuses why we do these exercises, how they can help, and demonstrates the PWR! Moves while sharing modifications and adaptations that might be helpful.
General plan for the class: We start in sitting, the move up into standing then down on the floor! Each position is very important and beneficial! I encourage you to do the whole class!
Remember - modify as needed. Don't do anything that doesn't feel safe. Use support as needed during standing exercises and use a chair for getting down on the ground and back up if you need it!
-Sturdy chair without arms
-Yoga Mat for the floor
-Workout towel for stretching and in case you break a sweat!
-Light Hand Weights (1-3 lbs) or something similar!
