PD Exercise Classes Live Online

For those with Parkinson's disease (PD) exercise is as important as medications, but it isn't always possible to exercise outdoors or go to an exercise class.  Sometimes people feel a greater commitment to exercising in a class setting when others are expecting your attendance.  These live virtual exercise classes allow you to exercise in your home with the added benefit of some social interaction (albeit virtual).  Remember, it's motivating (and healthy!) for care partners to exercise at the same time.  

Most classes listed here are specific to PD.  All are appropriate for those with PD.  Classes are open to anyone, not just to those in the area where the hosting organization is located.

Also check out our list of PD exercise videos -- available any time!
