Summer Camp Registration

Parkinson’s Awareness Month

  • About: YMCA of Coastal Carolina is expanding the Power thru Parkinson’s program to the Claire Chapin Epps Family YMCA in April.
  • Class Description: A 60-minute group exercise class for anyone with Parkinson’s, Parkinsonisms, or movement disorders that would benefit from repetitive, exaggerated patterns of movement. Each class has 10-12 stations that work on strength training, balance and neuromotor training, as well as cardiovascular work and stretching. Incorporating exercise has proven to improve motor disorders and nonmotor disorders in people with Parkinson’s Disease. Furthermore, providing the chance to take part in physical and cognitive exercises in a group setting challenges the person to use muscles, pathways, and expressions they may otherwise shy away from.
