Instructor Helen Solomon focuses on weight shifting. Balance begins with proper weight shifting. Whether it’s standing, walking, turning or stepping up and over. It is very important to maintain a strong and confident center of gravity. Falls are the number one cause of fatal injuries for seniors. Very often this can be avoided by weight shifting and balance exercises.

For individuals with mobility issues, using the floor for exercise can present challenges. Our chair fitness class provides an effective workout that doesn’t require you to roll around on the floor. By adopting a creative approach to exercise, participants can overcome mobility limitations and continue building their strength and flexibility.
