For people living with FSHD who are interested in exercise and fitness, we meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month at 12:00 pm (noon) U.S. Eastern Time. Come dressed for exercise and have on hand any safety and assistive devices you need. Not every exercise is appropriate or safe for every individual, so please use your best judgement and consult your health care provider.
This month, we’ll hear from Priscilla Sharun, a fitness enthusiast and active member of the international FSHD Instagram online community through her Instagram account FSHD Wellness. Priscilla brings her experience as a former Taekwondo instructor, 20 years practicing yoga and pilates, and her personal journey of navigating exercise with FSHD. She will be leading a series of low-impact, seated exercises that will focus on intentional and controlled movements to enhance core strength, mobility and even mood. It will focus on smaller and deeper muscles.
Please come prepared with a stable chair or stool (back of chair is optional). You can also choose to bring light weights ranging from 1lb to 5lb.
