MINDING YOUR BALANCE: MIND/BODY TECHNIQUES TO IMPROVE BALANCE AND PREVENT FALLS   

As we age, the risk of falls tends to increase largely due to a decline in balance abilities. This decline is often gradual and can start as early as middle age. The progressive loss isn’t typically noticed or considered a problem that we can or should deal with … until we fall. Therefore, incorporating balance training into a proactive, personal health management strategy is essential for many of us. Minding Your Balance™ draws on lessons from the martial art Ki-Aikido to take a groundbreaking look at balance and its fundamental relationship to mind and emotion. Easy to learn mind-body exercises, scientific insights, and stories of applications in everyday life will provide participants with tools to immediately improve balance control. Each class will include checking in with participants about their needs and experiences, information on the science behind the mind-body activities, and ways to practice and apply the lessons in everyday living. Participants will work individually and with partners. Activities can be done seated and standing; all activities are adaptable to different needs and abilities.
