Parkinson's Programs

The next session of Singercise will begin on April 7, 2021. Singercise is a free, virtual class offered online for people battling Parkinson’s disease. This program is offered through the Greater Susquehanna Valley YMCA thanks to a community grant from the Parkinson's Foundation.

Singercise aims to improve vocal intensity, speech intelligibility, respiration and swallowing. It can also provide stress reduction as well as reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Class meets Wednesdays virtually via Zoom from 1-2 pm and in-person from 2:15-3:30 pm.

Class is led by board-certified music therapist Alysha Suley, MM, MT-BC, a member of the American Music Therapy Association and the International Association for Music & Medicine.

Registration is required and class slots are available on a first come, first served basis. Interested participants may register online. Singercise is open to participants of any physical ability or fitness level. Musical experience and singing ability are not required. For more information, please email Alysha Suley.
