I thought some of you might be interested in this group, PD Active, in which I've participated for several years. It's been a god-send for me. Wish all with PD could be involved in something similar. Wonderful people & wonderful activities. I've participated in dance, yoga, chorus, PD Forum, and many other activities we sponsor. Take a look at the Programs section and the calendar & newsletter. If you're in our area, please join us. Here's a brief description from our website:
PD Active is a group of Berkeley/Oakland-based people impacted by Parkinson’s disease who act to build and strengthen our local community through advocacy, dance classes and other activities. We believe that we are our own best advocates and that acting on our own behalf fosters independence, dignity and respect, while preventing isolation and depression.
PD Active began in late 2007, following an energizing dance class for people with Parkinson’s sponsored by the Mark Morris Dance Group. We obtained 501(c) 3 federally exempt non-profit status in January of 2009.
