Your balance can be improved. Over time, our experience of balance changes. We often discover this development when we least expect it, walking downstairs with the laundry basket, going for a winter walk and discovering a patch of ice, or getting up too quickly. Why does this happen, and what can be done about it? Discussion and validation of these universal experiences will be explored. Learn practical tips and exercises to increase stability and confidence!
