Making a Difference in Parkinson’s Disease

Learn about our passionate team,
and how you can help!

We Care About Maintaining Your Safety.

 We recognize the danger that Covid-19 represents to our Parkinson’s Community. Activities have resumed, but we are taking several  precautions. We require all participants to sign a liability waiver, meaning you will participate at your own risk, even though we are trying to create as safe an environment as possible. 
Temperature – We will use a no-contact infrared thermometer.
Social Distancing – We ask you to practice social distancing. 
Masks/Face Coverings – They will be mandatory.
Sanitizing Equipment – Equipment must be wiped down between uses. 
Hand Washing – Please wash your hands before and after class. 
Boxing Gloves – It’s best bring your own, although we do have some extras
Yoga Mats – It’s best to bring your own, although we do have some extras.

If you are feeling sick, have symptoms of Covid-19, or have been exposed to someone who is sick within the last 14 days, please stay home until you are symptom free for 14 days.
