Exercise For Better Balance

Is your balance as good as it used to be? Can you still stand on one leg without swaying? What happens when you close your eyes? The gradual loss of our sense of balance can catch us unawares. The aging process, injury and inactivity can all contribute. This course will introduce you to exercise to help you on the path to better balance.
