PWR! Moves – first session of 20 through April 18
February 11 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm$120
The JCC of Greater Pittsburgh has partnered with the Parkinson Foundation Western Pennsylvania to offer PWR! Moves. Parkinson’s Wellness and Recovery Class.
PWR!Moves is a PD-specific skill training program to maintain or restore skills that deteriorate and interfere with everyday movements.
Dr. Farley created PWR!Moves® as the EVOLUTION of her original LSVT BIG® exercise program. The BASIC4 | PWR!Moves® offer a flexible and functional amplitude-focused exercise approach that targets multiple symptoms, and that allows for adaptation for disease severity.
PWR!Moves can be combined and progressed into a stand-alone group program or integrated into ANY exercise program, ANY activity (function, activites of daily living, recreation, sports, and hobbies), in ANY setting (community group or rehab 1:1), by therapists and fitness professionals.
The BASIC4 | PWR!Moves are performed with large amplitude, high effort, and attention to action in multiple postures (floor, all 4’s, sitting, and standing). They specifically target “4” skills shown by research to interfere with mobility in people with PD (antigravity extention, weight shifting, axial mobility, and transitional movements).
