Balance & Fall Prevention

Moving for better balance

 

As part of our mission, the Y seeks to support every older adult with their desire to stay active and healthy in spirit, mind and body.

Because falls are the leading cause of injuries among older adults, the Y offers a fall prevention program for seniors: Moving for Better Balance. Classes are offered at a variety of locations in our region, including YMCA facilities, senior centers, and other community locations in El Paso & Teller Counties.

For more information about our Moving Programs, call 719.329.7233 or email [email protected]!

 


 

Moving for Better Balance - Coming in January! 

 
Moving for Better Balance is a 12-week fall prevention program using the principles and movements of Tai Chi, designed to help adults 60 years and older improve their balance and increase their confidence in doing everyday activities. The entire class can be done in a chair.
