EWC highlights upcoming N’Balance class

The Community Education office at Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington is offering an N’Balance class.

N’Balance – Instructor Melanie Herring, North Platte Physical Therapy
One third of community-residing adults aged 65 and older suffer a fall each year. Falls are the leading cause of injury-related deaths in older adults.

N’ Balance is a class that takes a practical approach to balance exercises, focusing on parts of the body and how they influence balance. N’ Balance will focus on training the three systems that affect balance: somatosensory, visual, and vestibular. Participants will learn exercises that will challenge the somatosensory, visual, and vestibular systems because as people age they become more sedentary, which results in decreased use of these systems causing decreased strength and activity levels.

This class meets 2 times a week for 1 hour sessions, with one additional session for baseline testing before beginning the class activities. Join this class and become more active and confident in the community and home while possibly expanding your social life. This class will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays, June 11-July 25, from 8:15-9:15 AM, (no class on July 4). The cost of these 13 session is $130.

To register for this class or others, contact the EWC Community Education office at 307.532.8323 or stop by at 3200 West C Street in Torrington.
