Do you feel unsteady when standing or walking?  Do you worry about falling?  In this program, you will discover the risk factors that can contribute to falls by completing a Falls Self-Assessment.  You will learn about physical as well as environmental factors that can increase the risk of falling. Once you are aware of the risk factors that contribute to falls, you will master specific strategies that can be used to prevent falls.   Did you know that yoga can improve balance and flexibility?  You will participate in some basic chair yoga moves that may improve your range of motion and prevent future falls.   You will also brainstorm strategies to help yourself if you should fall.
