Personal Enrichment

Posture, Core & Balance

$54

with Stacy Graffam

Calendar Apr 23, 2019 at 5:30 pm, runs for 6 weeks

You will learn how to regain good posture by correcting bad habits. Poor posture leads to rounded shoulders, kyphosis, neck and back pain and the appearance of getting shorter.  You will find, use and strengthen your core. Having a strong core and applying it in your everyday activities will reduce stress and strain on your joints, bones and muscles.  It is a myth that we lose our balance with aging. We simply lose our balance because we practice it less. Sitting, knitting, watching tv and playing cards doesn’t encourage your body to balance. You will learn ways to encourage balance in everyday life. Wear comfortable clothing, sneakers and bring a bottle of water.
