Better Balance Classes

Are you concerned about your balance, particularly now that we are moving about less for public health reasons?

Balance is not the capacity to stand on 2 legs or just 1 leg, but rather it is the ability to move with confidence through our homes and communities without fear of falling. Our 2 levels of Zoom based classes work on posture, awareness, strength, and dynamic challenges. The only props you need are a chair to use for a hand hold and steady shoes on your feet.

We offer 2 different levels of balance classes. You can expect an initial 15- minute online interview (at no charge) to help determine your appropriate class level and functional goals. Not all balance problems are the same. Expect to learn effective exercises that are specifically targeted to your type of balance issue, and to have fun. You can join or leave the balance classes at any time.

"The balance classes at Taylor and Thornburg with Deedee Savant have significantly changed the quality of my life. As a senior and with other issues, I was facing a future of a fear of falling and some actual tumbles. Now I can confidently get through my days for I now have the skills to keep my core centered and also to recover when there is some type of unbalancing event, such as stepping on an uneven surface. So thank you Deedee for the gift of days with balance. Both literally and figuratively." - CK

“I love my balance class! I’ve had too many falls in my life, this class gives me confidence in my body. I feel stronger each week.” - SG

Mind(ful) Over Matter

Did you know that studies show we can positively affect our pain levels by working out the mind, not just the body?

In this class series, you will explore the science behind pain, and how it applies to your chronic pain condition. As you progress through the classes, you will learn about and practice mindfulness, meditation, yoga, and breathing techniques. You will also have the opportunity to explore related resources and tools. Change your relationship with your symptoms. Find things that resonate with you, and are effective in reducing your pain.

In order to participate in this eight week course, you will need to be able to commit to weekly 60 minute online meetings as well as 10-30 minutes a day to practice with the tools you learn. You will also need a device capable of Zoom, a notepad or journal, and a yoga mat. (Photo: Alexandra Mohamadi, DPT)

"I was blessed to have had the opportunity to take the Mind(ful) Over Matter class, for which I will be forever grateful. The things I learned literally changed my life for the better. The impact it’s had on my daily living has been incredibly beneficial. The things taught are backed by science, and the teachings loop around to show you just how connected everything is; how powerful a mere thought can be and the affect it can have on your physical being. This class has such a beautiful approach to seeing the other side of pain, and how it can be greatly helped by simply adjusting your thought process and approach to whatever form of pain is present in your life. I cannot recommend this class enough. And Alli is amazing.  She makes you feel comfortable and makes the class interesting and fun. You will not regret signing up!" - Heidi

"Following the 8 weeks of training, I find I am more able to respond, instead of reacting to life. Now, having more discernment where I put my energy, I feel more rested. I continue to journal and meditate daily. I have spend hours viewing the many videos and references included in her class and have added yoga to my program of exercise. Meditation continues to be a dependable tool and a genuine gift for me" -  Loa L
