WINTER 24 – BALANCE. NOW 2:303:20, Tuesdays

So many friends and acquaintances say, “I have terrible balance,” or “my balance is not as good as it used to be.” Balance is a major concern, but many people don’t seem to realize that it’s possible, even easy, to improve. Downhill is not the only direction they can go. My new class is dedicated to a single, important element of maintaining, or even regaining, independence. The group can include varying levels of stability. Participants may use more or less support as needed.

Very frail participants should come with an assistant, so I’m free to lead the whole group.

Wear sturdy shoes, please.

       at Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 W. C. St., Springfield, OR

The BALANCE class is not a Nia class. I will, however, use my filter of paying attention to sensation to guide you toward internalizing the skills you build. And I always want to create an environment of exploration and delight.

My wish: to bolster your optimism and passion for life by encouraging  movement that feels satisfying, and by creating a safe place for relating to people in person. Drop-in is ok. You don’t have to pre-register.
