Strength and Balance

This past week we visited a friend who had a sudden fall and broken her hip. She was cleaning and her leg gave out. She had her hip replaced and looking to a long process of rehab. She is in her early 60’s.

Inviting the body to move in novel ways helps us stay creative and physically strong. Doing so now is the best preventative medicine.

The statistics on falls are not very promising. It’s estimated that 1/3 of the US population over the age of 65 falls annually. Those who fall are more likely to fall again.

There are many reasons why we become more prone to falling, but we can reduce our chances of falling by increasing our muscle mass and working on balance.

Tonight’s yoga session will focus on both. Join us.
