Senior Fitness: Balance & Strength

We are happy to announce Senior Fitness: Balance & Strength with returning instructor Paul Spector.

Balance is an essential part of all movement, at every level: dance, athletics, biking, boating, hiking, and plain old walking. Like all other capacities, the “use it or lose it” maxim holds true for balance. There are many reasons why our balance deteriorates with age. But the principal cause is lifestyle. Most adults don’t do much to challenge their balance skills. So those skills atrophy.

This workshop will introduce exercises that improve postural stability, core strength, spatial body awareness, sensory integration, agility and coordination. The class size will be kept small to allow greater flexibility in addressing the needs of each participant. The workshop is designed as a series of 4 classes. After completing the weekly sessions, the individual will have mastered a balance routine that can be continued independently at home.
