Better Balance

*Please Note*
All specialty classes, both one-on-ones and group lessons, are now offered by request in either an in-person or digital formal. Donna is prepared to deliver safe in-person classes and/or informative virtual lessons to students however they’re most comfortable. This slight change in our scheduling process has come as a result of ongoing public health concerns and developing guidelines.

Balance is one of those unconscious body functions, like breathing, that deeply impacts the rest of our lives. Maintaining healthy balance employs all parts of the body while relieving chronic pain and promoting good posture. It also means more than standing up straight. Healthy balance habits can positively impact comfort while sitting or lying, too—and while running, walking, or reading.

Stand upright for a moment and take stock in how your body aligns itself while vertical. Can you determine if one foot or one leg is supporting more weight than the other? Are you leaning in any direction without meaning to? Balance is a divine physical attribute that all people are naturally born with. It is easy, however, to develop habits that can inhibit balance, causing discomfort or worse.

In these classes, movement expert, Donna Wood, will explore multiple theories in refining the balance of students, including Feldenkrais and yoga, leaving them with valuable lessons to use in the future.
