Chair Tai Chi

Tai chi is a gentle exercise that improves balance and reduces fall risk. It consists of making slow, graceful movements while breathing deeply. It’s relatively easy to follow because the movements are done so slowly.

Seated tai chi is a great exercise option for frail seniors or those with limited mobility. It helps older adults get the health and wellness benefits of tai chi without the fall risk. Studies find that tai chi also improves flexibility, immune system, sleep, happiness, sense of self-worth, strength, cardiovascular endurance, concentration, and more.

All that’s needed is a sturdy chair, so it’s easy to do these routines in the comfort and convenience of home.

Parkinsons Dance

Our Dance for Parkinson’s program is built on one fundamental premise: professionally-trained dancers are movement experts whose knowledge is useful to persons with PD. Dance for Parkinson’s is an aesthetic experience that uses the elements of narrative, imagery, music and community to develop artistry and grace while addressing such PD-specific concerns as balance, flexibility, coordination, isolation and depression.

We are proud to have Linn McDonald, owner of Linn McDonald School of Dance located in Scranton, instructing our Dance for Parkinson’s classes held on Tuesday at 11:00am.
