Music & Wellness

Fourth Tuesday of every month, 6 to 7 p.m.

Music therapy goals include: maintaining or improving breath support, alleviating stress, improving mood and aiding memory recall. No musical training or experience is required to benefit from music therapy.

Brain Games

The Brain Games Café is a safe, comfortable, engaging environment where people with memory loss and cognitive issues can laugh, learn and remain socially engaged with others traveling the same journey.

Art Therapy

First and third Friday of every month, 10 to 11:30 a.m.

Art therapists use art media, and often the verbal processing of produced imagery, to help people resolve conflicts, develop interpersonal skills, manage behavior, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and achieve insight. Pick one date per month and take part remotely, interacting with the therapist through your internet-enabled camera and microphone.

Neuro Men’s Group

Second Thursday of every month, 10 to 11:30 a.m.

This group is for any adult who identifies as male and has been diagnosed with any neurological disorder.

Feldenkrais

The Feldenkrais Method uses gentle movement and directed attention to improve movement and enhance functioning. Through this method, you can increase your ease and range of motion, improve your flexibility and coordination, and rediscover your innate capacity for graceful, efficient movement, enhancing other aspects of your life.

Tai Chi

Wednesdays and Fridays, 3 to 4:30 p.m.

Slow, intentional movements of tai chi integrate mind and body, generating internal energy and mindfulness. Tai chi movements can improve muscular strength, flexibility and fitness, relieve pain, and protect joints.

Tremor Yoga

Yoga is cited as a favorite nonmedical therapy by many living with chronic disease. Yoga is an adaptable practice, with both functional and psychosocial benefits that can be suited to a variety of abilities.
