Reverse Aging: The Mind-Body Connection
8 sessions, 12 hours
Physical activity protects areas of the aging brain that involve memory and focus, yet older adults often have mobility and pain issues that prevent them from exercising. Awareness Through Movement® classes, developed by physicist and judo master Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, improves mobility and the brain through directed attention, visualization and stress-free movement. We will focus on solutions to the challenges that older adults face, restoring functions necessary for an active and enjoyable retirement. Whether you want to improve your golf swing or need a way to ease back into exercise, this class is the perfect way to reduce pain while improving balance, flexibility, strength, vitality and focus. Participants must be able to lie on a mat. Feldenkrais requires the use of a special mat. The instructor will provide you with directions on how to purchase your own mat.
