Event Description

ReNu Your Life Exercise for Parkinson’s is an ongoing group exercise program designed to empower people with Parkinson's disease by optimizing their physical function and maintaining or restoring independence.  Individuals are welcome at any stage of mobility and all can derive benefit, but the impressive results come from those who begin exercise early in the diagnosis.  Functional exercises include BIG movements, stretching, posture, balance, fall prevention, strength, gait, facial and vocal.  In addition to the physical improvement, weekly camaraderie with like-minded people provides social reinforcement, optimism, hope and encouragement to handle the daily challenges of PD.

Caregivers are welcome to participate, but are not required to attend the class.
