Good balance is essential though out life to enable us to walk on uneven ground, stand to dress, walk through narrow spaces, bend and pick up things, side step to avoid obstacles or save ourselves from tripping. It is much more than being able to stand on one leg.
There are many reasons why balancing declines as we age – but the good news is that balance certainly improves with specific training.
Andrew runs two balance classes each week, one which draws its influence from Tai Chi where movements are slow and deliberate to develop strength and dynamic balance and another where various other equipment is used e.g. a gym stick, exercise ball, and different surfaces to walk on
The exercises are tailored to the capability of each individual in a small group (max. 6 people).
Research shows the benefits of balance exercises are best gained by x2 x 45 minute sessions per week.
