Improve Balance and Prevent Falls Through Tai Chi
Are you worried about falling? The fear of falling often results in more falls; hence, confidence in “not falling” helps reduce these incidents. Tai Chi is a gentle movement exercise that improves balance by strengthening muscles and coordination; simultaneously, it strengthens the mind, enhancing calmness and confidence in not falling. Thus, with regular practice, tai chi is a highly effective exercise for fall prevention.
Yoga Classes led by Donna Smyth

Classes are limited to 10. Walk ins are welcome but classes are likely to fill up so registration is strongly encouraged. Register by sending an email to Donna at firstname.lastname@example.org
$15 suggested or “whatever feels appropriate”
Yoga Sculpt practice focuses primarily on strength, balance, coordination, and body awareness. This class will also invite participants to connect with the breath in order to move to their “steady edge” to strengthen and challenge both the body and the mind.
Yoga With A Chair
$12 suggested or “whatever feels appropriate”
Have you wanted to practice Yoga, but were concerned about getting down, and coming up from the floor? If you answered “yes,” this gentle stretch Yoga session may be for you. This practice will introduce participants to poses that can be done with, or in a chair. We will also have the opportunity to practice simple breath work and meditation.
