Aquatherapy (Swimming) for Parkinson’s

Exercising in water is one of the best ways to help maintain balance, strength, flexibility and general fitness, whilst also having some fun! The group is well equipped to ensure safe exercise, and the buoyancy effect of the water means that there is no risk of falling whilst exercising.  

Yoga

Yoga for Parkinson’s provides light exercise based on Yoga stretches and postures plus breathing practises and some relaxation. The work is adapted to suit each individual where possible, and several students work with support and/or chair and wheelchair. The class keeps people mobile, flexible and strong. The breathing practises and relaxation help concentration, relieve stress factors and promote more efficient breathing, which will in turn impact in a positive way throughout the body.
