Agile Aging

This ongoing weekly class for independent elders is sponsored by the local Rec Department, and is now in its 6th year. In this clip from the Agile Aging Basic Class DVD, you can see moments from some of our favorite agility activities that form the core class program that our instructors train to teach, including work with our Agility Balls. All activities can be adapted for those with more limited mobility, and even for frail elders. Many of our activities are based on principles from Spacial Dynamics, a unique approach to movement education and movement therapy. Agile Aging is an associate member of the International Somatic Movement Education and Therapy Association. Valerie Baadh Garrett is a RSMT, a Registered Somatic Movement Therapist as well as an author, coach, trainer, and conference presenter. You can order the DVD, Agility Balls, and gifts at our online store. More at agileaging.org.
