Aqua aerobics has proven benefits for those with neurological conditions. Because the water’s buoyancy supports 60 percent to 90 percent of body weight, exercising in the water is easier and increases the range of motion and balance. In addition, the water temperature has a natural cooling effect, which makes for an overall pleasant mental and physical experience. Neuro Aqua class is geared for those with Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, or other common neurological disorders. Includes stretching with a full range of motion and toning. All fitness levels welcome. For class offerings, see the Aquatics class schedule.
