Balance for Seniors

Wednesdays    11:30 - 12:15    Drop-in

In our Balance Class we take things slowly. We are working on improving our balance through exercises that help you to think with your feet while strengthening your balance muscles that help to keep you stable.

We work on intentional walking and movement while focusing on how our weight shifts through the feet and legs during motion. This class is also great to help get creaky joints moving and to gain awareness of how we hold ourselves. Alignment is a major focus to help protect the knees and heal the body.

Falling down is one of the biggest risks to health as we age. This is because of two reasons. The first being the physical damage that can occur during a fall. The other is the psychological damage that can happen after a fall. If we become hesitant about getting up and moving about, then we start to get less and less physical exercise. This can result in an even greater lack of balance that leads to more falls as well as weaker immune system that can lead to more frequent illness.
