Parkinson's Wellness Workshop: Boxing - Rock Steady Boxing (open to all)

Tremor. Rigidity. Freezing. Loss of balance. Poor posture. You know how Parkinson's disease affects movement. Medication can help, but did you know that movement and exercise can also help? Research has found that exercise can significantly improve both motor and non-motor symptoms of PD. It can also enhance strength, stamina, mood, and general well-being. So come move with us! This workshop is for people who have Parkinson's disease, but we welcome anyone who wants to learn some basic boxing skills. No experience and no equipment required. Just wear comfortable clothing and clear a little space in your living room so you can move.
