Instructor Helen Solomon focuses on the importance of posture and posture strength. Proper posture and posture strength allows the muscles and joints to work together to avoid imbalances and weakness which ultimately can lead to falls, sprains, strains and broken bones. Learning and practicing these movements will lead to a stronger body, more coordinated movements and better balance.
