Parkinsons Exercise Class

Parkinson's Exercise Class at the Arvada YMCA

The Parkinson’s Exercise Class helps people improve their quality of life by restoring lost functions. Participants perform exercises that have been proven to strengthen handwriting skills, gait, walking, rigidity, balance, and posture.

Part of the GZSobol’s Parkinson’s Network (GZSPN), the class was developed by Gary Sobol. Sobol has Parkinson’s Disease himself and had been seeing a decline in his personal health and wanted to recover the mobility he was losing.

He created the class to help people with Parkinson’s Disease and anyone who has difficulties in the following critical areas:

  • Rigidity
  • Hand dexterity
  • Akinesia
  • Bradykinesia
  • Postural stability
  • Balance
  • Cognition
  • Gait

Each class is designed to advance participants’ progress by increasing repetitions, holding longer poses, and meeting new challenges. Requisite: Participants who need individual assistance must be accompanied.  

At the Arvada YMCA, class is offered Mondays and Wednesday 11:30- 12:45 pm.
Fee is $5 per class for non-members and free for YMCA members. Not a member? Join now.

To register, contact the Arvada - Susan M. Duncan YMCA at 303 422 4977.
