Know Your Body: Stretch, Strength, and Balance for Every Ability (Virtual)
Wed December 9, 2020 @ 2:45 pm - 3:45 pm
Learn more about your body and how it works and improve flexibility, balance, and coordination with this slow-paced, gentle class. Class begins with gentle, seated stretches and self-massage to improve body awareness, followed by a series of exercises to strengthen and mobilize the joints while still seated. Exercises then progress to standing with support of a wall to continue strengthening, ending with a short series of optional floor exercises.
