ABC (Agility/Balance/Coordination)

Agility, balance and coordination impact our every motion and day-to-day life. Learn what impairs your balance and how to control it with this two-day workshop. The first session will include a balance assessment; an in-depth look at how agility, balance and coordination are intertwined; and drill instruction. Participants will receive progressive drills for agility, balance and coordination to do on their own throughout the month. At the second session, participants will retake the balance assessment to chart their progress.
