Overview of the Workshop
This is part of our Movewell 2 Agewell™ workshop series.
As we get older, preventing falls and other incidents around the home become a key component for maintaining good health and living independently. We recognise that human beings, which balance and move on just two feet, are inherently unstable. Even when walking we are constantly balanced on one foot so we are always in the process of recovering our balance, as we strive to move around, and up and down. This aspect of balancing and moving is something we learnt to do from a very young age. Read More .
As you get older you may have lost some of your body learning that helps you to recover and maintain your balance. But this doesn’t have to happen. The answer to this is to refresh your learning to improve your stability and flexibility, and this is possible at any age. Through movement-based lessons you will improve how you walk, get up and down from the floor or a chair, and any activities that require you to maintain your balance.
Flexibility throughout your body is critical to helping you keep your balance. If you lack flexibility in your toes and ankles you will be more prone to falling, and if your ankles and toes are not able to adjust to your movements (through flexibility), then you will have problems aligning them to your hips. And this same issue presents throughout your body. One thing out of joint, or restricting flexibility, puts everything else out of good alignment.
At our workshop, we help you develop better coordination of all parts of your body through exploring different ways of moving. By exploring these new movement possibilities and applying this new learning over of a period of time throughout your daily living activities, your overall balance and flexibility will improve. At this two and half-hour workshop we simply help you develop better movement habits, which will assist you with better balance and put less stress on your structure and joints.
