Certified instructor description:
Everyone benefits from practicing balance and coordination. Balance and coordination take on an increasingly important role in maintaining Independence® and wellness. Good balance and coordination are important to help you get around town, live on your own and carry out your daily activities. Coordination and balance exercises also help you walk more confidently and decrease the likelihood of falls. If balance exercises are challenging for you, we understand.
