Balance Bingo! with Dr. Naseem Chatiwala (Studio)

Maintaining balance (whether stationary or moving) is a skill that incorporates interaction between many systems of our human body. Because balance is so complex, a multidimensional tailored exercise program is needed to address and improve it. When you feel balanced and steady it empowers you to do more throughout the day and reduces your fear of falls. The class includes domains of sensory system, posture, strength, flexibility, coordination, dual task (like walking and talking), vestibular, aerobic capacity, anticipatory, reactive and adaptive forms of balance to fulfill needs of older adults without any neurological deficits and those who may have neurological deficits like Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke, Parkinson’s, Concussion/ Traumatic Brain Injury and Vestibular Disorders. Participants move at their own pace while slowly trying to progress to challenging exercises.
