BETTER BALANCE WORKSHOP

  • What is better balance?
  • Is it easy to achieve?
  • How does having better balance affect our ability to do the everyday activities most important to us?

To help us maintain balance the brain has to receive information from 3 sensory sources which all work together:

  • Visual system (eyes) – when light enters the sensory receptors in the eyes they send impulses to the brain providing visual cues on how to be oriented relative to other objects
  • Vestibular (middle ear) – responsible for motion, equilibrium and spatial orientation
  • Proprioceptive system Information from muscles and joints provide cues as to where parts of the body are in space.
Balance is dynamic. We cannot stay upright without moving, which means that if we move better we will have better balance. From moment to moment, with every action, we are balancing. Good balance is something we take for granted until we run into difficulties.
Moshe Feldenkrais used the term ACTURE when referring to dynamic balance, replacing the POS in posture with ACT, a move active term. We have to move, to act with awareness in order to maintain our orientation in space to stay in balance.
In the Better Balance workshop you will learn what is good or better balance and how it affects your quality of life and ability to engage in everyday activities.

We will explore:

  • The impact of balance on walking, sitting, cycling and other key activities
  • How balance relates to falling
  • How to find support for all your key activities
  • How to walk with more confidence for better balance

This workshop is appropriate for people experiencing a balance challenge or those who want to continue to feel stability and support for comfortable living.
