This is a group exercise approach that specifically targets Parkinson’s disease symptoms of slow or small movements. Participants will learn how to use high-effort muscle activation for bigger movements, better posture, better balance, and for improvement with everyday functions like walking, turning, rising from a chair or floor, buttoning clothing, and speaking.
Activities are tailored to help participants overcome real-world personal challenges. Becky Farley, PT, MS, PhD, creator of LSVT® BIG and PWR!Moves™, designed this community exercise class to promote early intervention and continuous access to research-based exercise program.
