Kris Campbell, Area 10 Endright Center Health & Wellness Coordinator
A Matter of Balance

When you have good balance, you improve your mobility and prevent falls.  Balance declines with age, reaction time slows and there are more low blood pressure and inner ear problems.  There are also muscle weaknesses, joint problems and lack of flexibility.  If you don't use it, you lose it!!!

Flexibility classes give you a slow progression of skills and challenges.  You warm up in a chair with things like neck and shoulder rolls, elbow, wrist and waist twists, side to side hip movements and knee, ankle and toe rotations.

You proceed to mini squats, getting up without using arms, ham string curls, hand/eye coordination, stretching with bands, eye exercises, walking a line and trying to gradually not hold on to the chair, Finally, you learn to get off the floor slowly and safely.

Besides flexibility classes, the Endright Center offers yoga, zumba and low impact dancing.

Thanks to Kris Campbell and thank you to everyone that attended!  We had 45 attendees this month!  See you October 18th!
