Ready to kick off the new year with a new at-home exercise routine? You’re in luck! Keep ON Moving, a series of home workout videos created for people living with Parkinson’s, will help you feel energized, engaged, balanced, and prepared to live well today, throughout 2021, and beyond.
Developed through a partnership between BIAL and the European Parkinson’s Disease Association (EPDA), the exercises are based on the dual-training method and combine voice, movement, and cognitive tasks. Each video is short (ten minutes or less) and can be done in combination with other videos and repeated as often as you would like.
