Balance Your Life Program
Through a combination of Physiotherapy techniques and Martial Arts skills, you will learn how to fall gracefully.
This 8 week class is for highly motivated individuals who are willing to learn new skills and to practice them on a daily basis. All precautions will be taken to reduce the risk of injury during this very active training program by using transfer belts, foam mats and close supervision.
This class will give you the tools and skills for becoming more agile, balanced and confident in your movements and to achieve an improved sense of well-being.
Starting from the mat, you will learn how to connect with your body to create a new sense of awareness of your posture and movements, and how to maintain this while sitting, standing, and yes, also during falling.
Class size is limited so that each participant will get enough attention and hands-on support by the instructors to allow the transformation from fear of falling to falling gracefully.
