Active Body, Active Mind

Open to: people with Parkinson’s and caregivers.

As we journey throughout our day, we are commonly called upon to manage more than one task at a time. In fact, incidents involving falls often stem from scenarios that require us to dual task. This fitness class incorporates mental games to engage both the brain and the body, boosting flexibility, balance, strength, and agility. Led by Kelly Willenborg.
