According to the CDC, 1 out of every 3 people over the age of 65 falls once a year. Some falls result in serious injury. We also know that balance starts to decline at about age 45.

But you don’t have to fall!

Beginning a balance program before getting to the point of a fall is essential in maintaining and promoting good balance and quality of life.

Balance activities, balance exercises, and ongoing balance training can limit the loss or actually improve our performance.

This workshop will focus on promoting and maintaining balance, coordination, and posture through a series of simple brain and muscle exercises. The goal of ongoing balance training is to teach your brain how to quickly activate the right muscles in your body at the right time to help keep you upright.

This workshop is excellent for people of all ages, but especially beneficial to the older adult or those dealing with the affects of neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and stroke. It can also be helpful for individuals recovering from injury, experiencing declining vision, hearing and muscle strength.

Like anything else in life good balance is about practice. We tend to get good at sitting due to practice, so get out of the chair and let's balance our lives for healthier aging!

Everyone welcome! Family members and caregivers are welcome to attend as well.

Held at Ballet Austin, 501 W. 3rd St. Call 512.501.8704 if you have questions.

Instructor: Vicki Parsons, Ballet Austin's Butler Center for Dance & Fitness Director
