A fun, light chair dance exercise class for people with Parkinson’s and Seniors with their carers, partners, and family.
Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 2PM (Manila Time) Philippines
In the comfort of your home. You just need a secure and comfortable chair and a carer with you for safety.
These online classes allow people to enjoy Novy’s Sayaw PD, Dance for Parkinson’s classes in the safety and comfort of their home during the lockdown.
These classes allow Novy to regularly connect with people with Parkinson’s and lift their spirits with a fun, light chair exercise to get their body moving to the tune of soothing and upbeat music with Novy’s infectious energetic character.
