Neuro-Friendly Fitness FREE Trial Class (Online)

This FREE trial class will kick off our new Neuro-Friendly Fitness online class starting on June 8. Designed for the individual who may struggle to participate in traditional group exercise programs, this class will be chair-based, so even if you're concerned about your balance, or need help walking around, or simply feel better exercising seated or standing at a surface for support, there is a place for you.

Ideal for the individual living with neurological conditions like Parkinson's Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Neuropathy, Stroke or Brain Injury, this class helps you find ways to move your body in ways that feel good, promote brain health and healing and improve your overall fitness. Activities will be chair-based, seated or standing at the chair, and includes adaptive yoga, PWR! Moves Mobility, core and trunk control, strength and balance training, dynamic stretching and more. Includes breathwork and mindfulness and discussing other ways to reduce stress and improve overall health and wellness.

If you are curious about exercise, want to be more active or intimidated by joining a “normal” exercise class, this is the course for you.

Neuro-Friendly Fitness will be taught by Physical Therapist Dr. Katie Wadland, PT, DPT, Board-Certified Geriatric Specialist. Katie specializes in working with older adults, people with Parkinson's Disease and other Neurological disorders. She has been a treating therapist for over fifteen years and currently offers At-Home Physical Therapy with her Mobile Clinic Healthy Aging Physical Therapy. She also teaches the Strong Bones, Strong Life classes with Steinberg Center for Mind and Body and loves teaching people to enjoy exercise as much as she does.
