Sunday Mornings with Twitchy Women

Learn Together, Play Together and Thrive Together

We are living through very interesting times with the Coronavirus totally disrupting our lives. How are you coping with this? Are you finding that you are feeling isolated? What can you do?

Twitchy Women is hosting a series of webinars on Zoom every other Sunday morning at 10 am Pacific Time. Our meetings are always fun, informative and free. And just for Women with PD. To maintain privacy for this group, we ask that care-partners and family members not attend unless an event states that registration is open to all. If you have any questions, please contact twitchywoman18@gmail.com.

Claire will take the group through a PWR! Moves class. The PWR!

Plus we make these classes fun, and you will love how you feel afterwards 🙂
