The Parkinson’s Disease Foundation estimates there are more than 1 million people in the United States with Parkinson’s Disease (PD), and more than 60,000 people are diagnosed each year. The main symptoms of the disease are movement related.

The Y offers three evidence-based programs to improve range of motion, flexibility, posture, and activities of daily motion.

The Y offers three PD programs: Pedaling for Parkinson’s, PWR!Moves, and Rock Steady Boxing. Through support from the Parkinson’s Foundation, these classes are free for patients and caregivers.
