Event description

Description


Parkinson’s UK Edinburgh Branch has a weekly exercise class at the Thistle Foundation for people with Parkinson’s and it runs throughout much of the year.

The session is facilitator-led beginning with warm-up exercises. Then follows a variety of activities aimed at helping co-ordination and mobility and may involve use of various facilities within the Thistle complex. Finally, a little mindfulness and meditation is used to help focus thoughts on the ‘here and now’ helping individuals to feel in charge and in control. Participants can be seated when the need arises. The benefits are not just physical, the group support and sociability have a significant positive influence.

These sessions run on Mondays from 10.30am till 12.15pm. The contribution towards class costs is £2.50 per session bookable in a block, the length of which varies from term to term but the total for any block is based on £2.50 per session. Specific dates for the blocks can be confirmed if you contact Chris (details below). Note: We are not using Eventbrite for bookings, but as a means to communicate the range of activities offered by Parkinson's UK Edinburgh Branch.
