BALANCE AND A FEAR OF FALLING

Balance

Learn simple exercises designed to use the body’s available movement. Increase or re-develop balance through understanding the relationship of how the body counterbalances and supports movement with little effort. Using less effort and stress you can increase mobility in any function such as rolling over, sitting, standing, walking, turning, reaching, etc. Based on The Feldenkrais® Method of Somatic Education.
