LSVT BIG, Taichi & Exercises for Parkinson Disease

Parkinson's Disease brings with it a substantial challenge to an individual's coordination, balance, and movement. At our exercise class, we practice a variety of easy to learn and fun exercise programs to help us overcome these challenges.

LSVT BIG is a research evidence supported exercise that improves several key aspects of Parkinson's Disease.

  • Posture

  • Speed

  • Movement Size

  • Voice

  • Vitality


Taichi: A lot of research has been performed in recent years on the effects of its practice for individuals with PD. Some of the benefits they found include- improved balance, reduced tremor / sway, and improved quality of life. Personally, I love how the smooth movements of Taichi helps individuals learn to move with greater ease. The calming effects of Taichi are also very valuable for individuals living with chronic conditions.

Strength, flexibility, speed, balance, coordination: these are challenges that people with Parkinson's disease can face. You can improve these attributes with practice of calisthenics, weight training, and stretching exercises. The Parkinson's exercise class is led by physical therapists and certified personal trainers.

Boxing is another fun activity that we practice at this exercise class. Boxing encourages weight shifting, footwork, and movements that get your hands to the target in time! The most well known boxing program for Parkinson's Disease is actually Rocksteady Boxing, a program designed specifically to help people with this condition. At Plexus we do a bit of boxing drills but if you are interested in more boxing, you might check out the people at Title Boxing in Newbury Park who are specialized in the Rocksteady Program!

This event is open to anyone with Parkinson's Disease, no matter what stage of the condition you are at. If you have another neurological condition and would like to participate, please contact us to see if it would be a good fit for you. You can also RSVP at our meetup site.
