The UCI Health Parkinson’s Wellness Program (PWP) offers weekly classes for people who experience difficulty moving and thinking due to Parkinson’s disease or Parkinson’s-like symptoms.

This evidence-based program, which uses the principles of neuroplasticity, is supervised by a board-certified therapists with specialized training in Parkinson’s and neurologic rehabilitation. We tailor the program to meet the needs of each individual who has completed physical and/or occupational therapy with moderate to high-level exercise interventions.

These group-guided exercises are designed to teach participants how to use high-effort movement activation and to provide strategies to improve posture, balance and everyday function. Exercises include Parkinson’s-specific PWR! Moves® training, gait and balance activities, yoga, tai chi, power transfers, circuit training, memory strategies and much more.
