 NOTE: These programs will suit a variety of people at different stages in their Parkinson’s so please keep within your personal capabilities.  If you feel dizzy or lightheaded during exercise, STOP immediately. If you are unsure whether the exercise program is suitable for you please consult with your doctor.
