Fear of Falling: Finding Equilibrium (El Cerrito)

iff-archive_modern-photos-066-highres

SATURDAYS: Feb 25-4-April 15, 10-11 am, EIGHT CLASSES , *$105/$18 Drop-in (Mats Provided)

This class will explore how to improve balance, prevent falls, and reduce the fear of falling. The ‘feeling’ of falling, the effect of gravity pulling us towards the earth, can be thrilling, freeing, awakening. Children enjoy rocking and swinging, people ride roller coasters and ski down mountains. It can also be terrifying and threatening.

Staying balanced while we walk, work and play is an automatic and never-ending process. It can become less accurate and slower because of aging, poor fitness, injury, or disease. The fear of falling affects confidence and activity level, which further increases the risk of falling. The good news is with practice, you can improve your balance, even if you are aging, have had hip or knee surgery, Parkinson’s, or other neurological conditions.

  • Wake up your feet as balance sensors
  • Increase core strength & flexibility
  • Discover how your vision and inner ear affect balance
  • Practice walking as a free-flowing balance exercise
  • Learn how to protect yourself if you do fall

Mind Body Dojo is a large beautiful studio completely covered with Judo mats for your comfort and safety. This class can give you the knowledge and tools to improve balance, feel more confident, and become more active.
