Description

Balance in the real world is so much more than we think! For the most transferable and useable functional balance training, exercises need to challenge the body in ways that simulate the forces and variability that life throws at us, while integrating senses like touch, vision and sound. In this course, we will introduce and explore new science-backed approaches to how we can truly help the aging population replace fear with confidence and live a stronger life.
