“Parkinson Canada is thrilled that the RWB School is bringing ExplorAbility for Parkinson’s to life in Winnipeg this fall,” said Donna Greening, Parkinson Canada Community Development and Administrative Coordinator. “Manitobans with Parkinson’s are thirsty for activity-based programs to help improve their balance, range of motion, gait and overall health in fun and challenging ways…and this program fits the bill! Those with Parkinson’s who took part in recent demonstrations at local support groups overwhelmingly gave it a huge thumbs-up!”

ExplorAbility for Parkinson’s is $100 total for the eight-week session. Registration forms are available on the RWB School website at rwb.org/explorabilityparkinsons and can be submitted by phone (204-957-3467), email (school@rwb.org ) or through the School Office at 380 Graham Ave.

“ExplorAbility is a wonderfully rewarding program for myself as a teacher, as well as my students,” said Ladwig. “Together we explore dance and challenge our bodies to move in new and different ways. It brings me great joy to see our students show support, understanding and compassion to one another throughout the class.”

Both programs promote individual development for adults of different abilities and needs, withExplorAbility for Parkinson’s designed specifically for adults living with Parkinson’s disease. All classes are focused on developing body awareness, self-expression, posture and alignment in a creative and supportive environment. Wheelchairs, walkers, and other devices are welcome.
