Where to Exercise Online in 2023 If You’re Living with Parkinson’s 


I think we can all agree that one of the best things that emerged from the pandemic was the increased availability of online exercise classes and resources for the Parkinson’s community. Though some exercise classes and group activities have gone back to in-person offerings, many still feature online options. Whether you have limited resources in your area or simply love the variety that online options offer, virtual exercise classes may be a great fit for you.
