We're going to get wacky and loud and unruly. This is a time for exploration of sound and speech, so put on your silly pants and let's get started! Carmen will help you learn how to use your voice more effectively and share exercises with you that are fun. This class will make you speak louder and more clearly. These exercises also aid in keeping the swallowing function strong. This program is supported through a grant from the Parkinson's Council.

Pedaling for Parkinson’s

Cycling has been shown to reduce Parkinson’s motor symptoms by as much as 35%. It also can reduce other Parkinson’s related symptoms and improve fitness level overall by increasing stamina, strength, and mood. It can also reduce stiffness, tremors, and cognitive fog temporarily. If you have a stationary bike or would like to take your tablet to your gym and join us virtually for a ride, saddle up and let’s get going.
