Free Exercise Classes

Regular exercise can help people with Parkinson’s significantly as it helps to improve walking ability, joint flexibility, constipation, sleep problems, and depression. Exercise can also lower the rate of bone loss. People with Parkinson’s that attend regular exercise classes develop and maintain social interactions that can help with their morale.

Exercise is also very helpful for those people with Parkinson’s that have coexisting metabolic syndrome or risk factors for high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, diabetes, or heart disease.

It is quite challenging to inspire patients to perform exercises on a regular basis and hence World Parkinson’s Program offers regular exercise classes for people with Parkinson’s free of cost. In addition, World Parkinson’s Program has also developed an exercise diary for Parkinson’s patients, and it is available free of charge.

Exercises such as walking, aerobics, swimming, using a rowing machine or a stationary bike, yoga, Tai chi, and resistance exercises involving specific muscles are very beneficial to people with Parkinson’s.
