Created for People Living with
Neuromuscular or Autoimmune Conditions

The group fitness classes at the NeuroBalance Center might sound like those you’d find at your local fitness center. They incorporate elements of Yoga, Pilates and other popular programs. But our programs have all been created especially for people living with neuromuscular or autoimmune conditions.

Our classes are designed to help participants with their unique challenges. These programs improve strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, gait, speech and range of motion. They increase overall fitness which, in turn, helps our participants live better and adapt to the challenges they are facing.
