“When I began, I was concerned about making classes fit into my schedule, and now I plan my schedule around this class.”


"I am so surpised and happy about how my balance has improved over the 2 years I have been taking weekly classes with Jane.  I have left my walker behind and can balance on one leg without support!  My stamina has also improved greatly."

Events & Workshops

The first annual Parkinson's Summer Arts & Movement Weekend (sponsored by the APDA-MA) was held in June, 2011. Over 40 people gathered to enjoy the quiet space of Adelynrood Conference Center in Byfield, MA.  We sang, danced, ate unbelievable meals and spent our days doing Art, Dance, Yoga, Tai Chi and Photography. Thanks to Renee LeVerrier and the workshop attendees, you can visit this link  to share in the memories.
