Free online exercise classes in April for people living with Parkinson’s

At the Davis Phinney Foundation, we encourage exercise every chance we get because we know what an important ingredient exercise is to living well, with Parkinson’s or not.

Which is why we were excited to learn that as a way to celebrate World Parkinson’s Day and the National Day of Telehealth on April 11, 2018, BurnAlong is offering a full free month trial of their online exercise class platform.

Beginning April 1st, people with Parkinson’s, care partners, family members and advocates can get moving when they want, where they want and how they want for 30 days. There are hundreds of classes to choose from for people at all levels of fitness.

Here’s a sampling of the classes you can take, including several that are tailored to people with Parkinson’s:

  • Yoga
  • Strength training
  • Barre
  • Cardio
  • Core
  • Cycling
  • Dance
  • Kickboxing
  • High-intensity interval training (HIIT)
  • Self-defense
  • Martial arts
  • Stretching
  • Meditation
  • Rehabilitation
  • Healing classes

All you have to do to participate is head here and complete the short registration form. Then, be sure to invite your friends to do the same.

Happy (almost) Parkinson’s Awareness Month! Tomorrow’s the day to get started on your 30-day exercise challenge. Please let us know how it goes!
