Moving for Better Balance at the Kraft Y

Monday, January 21, 2019 (All day)

 Helping you feel strong, steady and safe.

In the United States, falls-related injuries are a major public health concern for individuals over 65 as well as those living with chronic conditions such as heart disease.

Moving For Better Balance is a 12-week evidence-based group exercise program developed by researchers at the Oregon Research Institute. The program, based on the principles of Tai Chi, is led by a qualified instructor and teaches eight movements modified especially for falls prevention.

The program works to improve balance, muscle strength, flexibility and mobility to enhance overall physical health, which leads to better functioning in daily activities. Participation in the program may also result in better mental health, reduced stress, improved memory and cognition, and increased self-esteem.
