Get Strong & STEADI at Steinberg with Dr. Tami DeAngelis (Studio)

Join licensed physical therapist and Board-Certified Geriatric Specialist, Dr. Tami DeAngelis, for this evidence-based course incorporating resources from the CDC’s STEADI Initiative. The 8-week class combines functional strength, static and dynamic balance exercises and has participants practice the Reactive Balance strategies critical to prevent falls. Going one step further than most balance classes, this class also teaches safe falling skills, floor recovery techniques and provides participants with the tools needed to keep them safe in the event of a fall that they cannot recover from independently.

Please note: As safety is a priority, each student will be screened prior to, or the day of, the first class. Should the instructor feel the class may be unsafe for you, you may be requested to have a course of physical therapy prior to starting the class, or attend class with a caregiver to provide some additional support.
