A Matter of Balance

$20

with Sandy Perry

Calendar Mar 27, 2018 at 9 am, runs for 8 weeks

Please join Matter of Balance Coaches, Sandy Perry and Maureen Enos in this life changing class!

Many older adults experience a fear of falling. People who develop this fear often limit their activities, which can result in physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. A Matter of Balance is a program designed to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels among older adults. It includes 8 two-hour sessions for a small group of 8-12 participants led by a trained facilitator.

This nationally recognized program was developed at the Roybal Center at Boston University.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

The program is designed to benefit older adults who:

* Are concerned about falls

* Have sustained falls in the past

* Restrict activities because of concerns about falling

* Are interested in improving flexibility, balance and strength

* Are age 60 or older, community-dwelling and able to problem solve

LOCATION

Memorial Hospital Physical Therapy Building, North Conway Community Room located on the 2nd floor. Park in upper parking lot.

CLASS RUNS on Tuesdays from March 27 - May 15, 2018

CLASSES ARE OUTLINED BELOW, but can adjust based on group dynamics and requests from the Intro Session.

Week 1: Mindfulness: a  guided open discussion. Explore  for yourself the virtues of slowing down and digging in, and being aware; finding your focus; take charge of your own mind and body; improve your influence; change your world. Handout sheets.

Week 2: Intro to Hatha Yoga. A slow, mindful and playful yoga practice. Emphasis on flow (but always the breath), this fun, anatomy-conscious class invites you to do familiar, traditional yoga postures in different ways.  Handout sheets.

Week 3: Intro to Yin Yoga.  Variations of seated and supine poses typically held for 1 to 3 to 5 minutes, accessing deeper layers of fascia; targeting the connective tissues of the pelvis, hips, and lower spine. Handout sheets.

Week 4: Intro to Restorative Yoga. A form of yoga that seeks to achieve physical, mental, and emotional relaxation with the aid of props. The use of props can make it easier for you to maintain balance while stimulating and relaxing your body.

Handout will be provided.
