Join us for an upbeat class designed to help you maintain, improve, or restore balance skills. We do problem-solving activities to challenge our mind and body in a socially-supportive and confidence-building environment. Better Balance, part of the Oasis Free from Falls series, is based on the premise that physical activity is the antidote to many of the challenges that accompany aging. Optional equipment includes handheld weights (or water bottles or food cans), resistance band, and foam balance pad. Limited enrollment.
