Hello !!

Something new at the Senior Center!

Have you wanted to take an Awareness Through Movement® Class but aren't able to get to and from the floor with confidence? Thanks to the new platform at the Senior Center, you don't have to!


Can't Get to the Floor? Not a Problem!

Using Platform1

After taking an exercise class recently at the Senior Center, I tried it out myself.

Just sit on the side and then swing up your legs and roll onto your back, like getting into a slightly higher than usual bed. The platform accommodates two students. Getting up is just as easy! Roll to your side, look toward your mat, and move up slowly as your feet drop downward over the side. You're almost standing.

Using Platform2

If you want to use the platform, please contact me before you sign up to let me know you want to use it (see link at the bottom of this newsletter). I will confirm that a spot is available for you, and then you can sign up as usual. There are two spots available for each class series.
And, of course, contact me if you have questions or need more information.

Happy Feet: A Flexible Foundation

When our feet aren't happy, neither are we!

Sit, stand and lie on the floor to:
