Move and Shout class November 10

Our class is growing. We have recently added Gay and Paul Kidd to our exercise class. Paul has Parkinson's and Gay comes to support Paul and to get in some exercise for herself. Last week we had Susan Bringhurst lead the class. She added voice exercises to some of her regular Yoga movements, a very good class.

Addition of boxing class for Parkinson's patients

Starting Monday December 2, 2019 we will be conducting boxing classes at the Senior Center 427 North 6th Avenue on the following schedule. The classes will be conducted two days each week. The enrollment is limited to 10 each class. The first class will be Monday and Thursday from 9:30 to 10:45. The other class will be on Tuesday and Friday 2:30 to 3:45. The classes will consist of instructions in boxing techniques and related exercises. Practice will be on regular boxing bags and punching bags. We are calling the class Poky4Parky

Monthly luncheon

Beginning September 28 the group began having a monthly luncheon gathering. The first luncheon took place on that date, Saturday September 28 at the Cotant Park picnic shelter in the northwest corner of the park. It was raining that day but the participants stayed dry under the shelter as there was no wind. We had a good attendance in-spite of the weather. It was decided that we would hold the luncheons each month on the second Saturday. We will tentatively hold them at the Pocatello Senior Citizens Center.

Monthly Meeting September 9, 2019

We had a presentation today presenting the activities of our support group now and coming up.

Statement from Davis Phinney:


There are a myriad of ways to get out and be involved in your community like joining a Parkinson's-specific exercise class, using your connections to fundraise, participating in a support group or growing your care team. Plus, new research shows that social connections are just as important as exercise for Parkinson's, so consider having friends over for dinner or attending a support group. No matter what form your community takes, it's essential to nurture and grow it so that you have a consistent support system in place.
