Online - Virtual Zoom Session Testimonials

"Erin's classes are inspiring. She is always bright, positive and encouraging. I love the Zoom classes because they mean I don't have to get dressed and out into the cold, or shovel snow when winter comes. I get to see my friends who also participate in your classes and the fact that she sends us a recording after class means that I can repeat it or get my exercise in at a different time if I have missed something. Thank you so much Erin for all you do." - Pat

“Erin's PWR!Moves class have helped me focus on movement to improve my balance,  and strengthen muscles I need for basic things like getting up out  of a chair. With Erin's encouragement I have joined her virtual classes throughout COVID. It helps to know I am not alone.” - Maureen

"I sure look forward to "seeing" everyone even if in zoom. It is really important for social connections and keeping physical activity going. It is too easy to isolate especially during Covid times. I also enjoy the taping later during the week." - Wendy

“Although we are on Zoom , I feel as if we are part of a group....a group whom you look forward to seeing each time.  The  group dynamic is strong. Being on Zoom, if the weather is bad, you can still participate in the class. I really enjoy Erin’s classes!  Her upbeat attitude makes us want to strive harder....she make the class fun." - Doris

“I have benefitted from the PWR!Moves courses for people with Parkinson’s in many ways. The regular routine of committing to an exercise class is so important. The exercises are designed to help people cope with specific moves, and this is invaluable.  Excellent teaching, variety of activities, encouragement and challenge make the sessions really essential for me and I feel really lucky to have these courses available in the community.” -  Jim
