Exercise with progressing symptoms

If your symptoms are progressing, focus on exercise that takes effort and pushes you. This could be a fast-paced 20 minute walk.

Also, target your symptoms. Yoga, tai chi, Pilates or Parkinson's exercise classes will help with strength, balance, movement and flexibility.

Talk to a physiotherapist who knows about Parkinson’s for more advice and to plan the right exercise for you, especially if you're just getting started.

Many of our local groups across the UK offer exercise classes specifically designed for people with Parkinson’s, at all stages of the condition.
