Learn to Fall Well
October 3 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Saturday, repeating until October 24, 2020
The Fall Well series will help you learn to:
1)increase your body awareness
2)feel your personal movement habits
3)improve your balance
4)improve your ability to recover your balance when falling.
When we fall, our reflexes kick in. Through safe, careful movement study, we can change our reflexes to learn movement that will happen before we can think. This is fall prevention – you will learn to fall well and recover safely. Please note: you will not be falling in these lessons. Kind Movement is safe and gentle movement to re-train your reflexes – so no falling required!
Online participation option available. Contact Cheryl at email@example.com or 780.903.5519

What Marlene, a participant in my Learn to Fall Well class says:
Fall mitigation has been my goal for the last 2 years. I haven’t made much progress with it. I do everything that people tell you to do, stay strong. But I still have issues with balance. We have addressed more in these few weeks in the class, than I have working the last couple of years with trainers and the walking process. You have to have balance when you’re moving. It is ok to work on balance when you are standing but that’s not when you fall. That was my goal.
I’ve learned what trips me up. I am learning to make that trip up less catastrophic. About half way through the series I fell while walking outside on some ice. Nothing I could do to keep from going down but I went down so softly. I had a really soft fall from something that could have been a much harder fall. I need to know when that happens, I will go down as lightly as possible.
