A physical activity class for those living with Parkinson’s disease. The class will help open up posture and include evidence-based exercises intended to change neuroplasticity in the brain by challenging balance, strength and coordination.

Our classes are a great way to have fun, meet like-minded people and include a social element at our in-person sessions.

Big, Bold and Balance is kindly supported by the Oxford Branch of Parkinson’s UK, allowing participants to take part in-person for only £3 per week, or join in online via Zoom.

Didcot Civic Hall. Wednesdays 10:30am-11:30am (online via Zoom at the same time)
Botley Seacourt Hall. Fridays 10:30 am-11:30am (online via Zoom at the same time)
