Balance Class Information

The August 2 class for “Matter of Balance” has filled to capacity.

We would love to offer another class, with enough interest.

Matter of Balance is a Tier 3 (Highest Level Criteria) health promotion class designed to educate seniors in the area of Fall Prevention and introduce them to information, preventive techniques, and exercises to improve balance, increase strength, and reduce the risk of falling.  Great exercise, fellowship, and informative information to prevent falls.

A Matter of Balance class includes eight two-hour sessions (limited to twelve (12) seniors) led by two (2) Certified Matter of Balance Coaches. 

The Matter of Balance program is offered at no charge to seniors age 55 and older.  However, contributions to support Matter of Balance, Geri-Fit, Tai Chi for Arthritis, and other Title III-D Evidence Based Health Promotion (EBHP) classes are always welcome and greatly appreciated.  

Class is limited to the first twelve (12 ) seniors to pre-register.  Must be 55 years of age or older. Contact Marjorie Lanier at the Y Express and let her know you would like to see an additional Matter of Balance class offered!  910-251-9622  ext. 261
