NORTHAMPTON Parkinson’s Programming

NORTHAMPTON Parkinson’s Programming

Community Wellness Program to start at HRYMCA April 11

As we are wrapping up a very successful PD Community Wellness Program in Greenfield we are jumping right into another 6 week course at the Hampshire Regional YMCA in Northampton. This program is scheduled to begin on April 11th and run through to May 23rd. Class time is Wednesday/Friday 1-2:30 pm. Check out the flyer!

This is a small group exercise program designed to teach people with Parkinson's an exercise program they can master through the program sessions and continue independently. Most participants are eager to learn all of the different types of exercise proven to help manage disease symptoms. We work hard through the program sessions to help each participant learn successful ways to integrate the exercises into their life and supplement these exercises with appropriate outside group classes.

The HRYMCA also currently offers a spinning (cycling class) with Alicia for people with PD. We know that aerobic conditioning enhances dopamine in the brain and can help slow disease progression. Ask about this class at the Hampshire Regional YMCA.
