EWC highlights upcoming Community Education classes

October 27, 2023

The Community Education office at Eastern Wyoming College in Torrington is offering the following classes.

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.  Pre-registration is required, no drop-ins.   Paid registration deadline:  November 6

DATE: Tuesday  & Friday,  November 7 to December 22
TIME: 9:00-10:00am
Cost: $130  (13 sessions) 
Location: FA 47 (Dance room)

The club meets once a month, everyone is asked to bring their own pot (it is amazing how differently they all work), individuals can partner and bring one pot.  Donna provides the recipes and the ingredients.  Everyone has a great cooking experience with lots of support from others, and the tasting is out of this world Plan on taking your leftover home in your pot or bring lidded containers.  Paid pre-registration is required the Monday before the scheduled class.
