We hold a weekly Rhythm & Moves exercise class in South Austin on Thursdays from 1:45pm-2:45pm, and are looking for regular volunteers who can commit to assisting once a week for at least 2 months at a time, although a longer-term commitment is preferred.

Volunteer responsibilities include arriving 15 minutes early to help set up the room, signing in participants when they arrive, some light balance spotting, and assistance with equipment during class. If interested, you can definitely try a class before committing to ensure that it is a good fit. We have an incredibly warm and grateful group of instructors and attendees, so we feel sure you'll love it!

We offer 13 classes each week in 9 locations all around Austin, so if this time doesn't work, we'd love to help you find one that does! Contact us for more information.

Mission Statement

Power for Parkinson's provides free fitness, dance, and singing classes for people with Parkinson's and their care partners locally in Austin, TX and around the world through an online home video series. Our mission is to engage people with Parkinson’s in regular exercise to slow or even reverse the effects of PD, improve overall sense of well-being, provide opportunities for socialization, and help prevent depression and isolation that often accompanies the disease.

Description

Power for Parkinson’s was founded in 2013 on the idea that the Parkinson's community needed a welcoming, inclusive space to meet and engage in group exercise. Since then, the organization has provided free weekly exercise, dance, and singing classes to hundreds of people living with Parkinson's in the Austin community. Power for Parkinson’s participants look forward to their weekly classes and social events, have an improved sense of well being, and report they are doing better physically, emotionally, and socially. In addition to weekly classes in the Austin, TX area, Power for Parkinson's has build a global community providing free at-home exercise videos via YouTube. The videos have since been viewed in over 160 countries around the world.
