Balance, Fitness & Pilates Workshops


Better Balance & Movement Workshop

Wednesdays, October 29 - November 19 / 11:15am - 12:00pm (4 weeks)

This workshop will focus on promoting and maintaining balance, coordination, and posture through a series of simple brain and muscle exercises. The goal of ongoing balance training is to teach your brain how to quickly activate the right muscles in your body at the right time to help you keep your balance.

DID YOU KNOW?

General physical fitness and targeted exercises to improve balance can prevent falls. But so can activities that hone your cognitive fitness. A sharp mind helps you to think — and stay — on your feet. We depend on an intricate balance system to keep us upright. The inner ear, which senses head motions, plays an important role. So does the body's somatosensory system, which relays the feeling of the ground beneath your feet. And, of course, vision tips you off to obstacles around you.

The brain takes in all this information, plans movements, and carries them out.

This workshop is excellent for people of all ages, but especially beneficial to the older adult or those dealing with the affects of neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and stroke. It is also very helpful for individuals recovering from injury, experiencing declining vision, hearing and muscle strength.

Practical principles that may be carried out at home will be taught during each session.

"The exercises, particularly when also practiced at home, really did improve my stability and balance, and even helped to strengthen my weaker side." Balance & Movement Participant

Check out this interesting article from the Wall Street Journal: Boost Your Balance; Avoid Falls

Taught by Vicki Parsons, Ballet Austin's Butler Community School Director.

Due to partial underwriting from Scott & White Healthcare we are able to offer the following:

  • Introductory offer to those taking the workshop for the first time: NO COST

  • 4-week workshop offered at a special $35 rate



Workshops require enrollment ahead of time. Deadline to sign up is 2 days before start date.

Pilates Mat Basics - This is Pilates for Beginners! (6 weeks)

Returning in January

Pilates has become very popular and for good reason. Our body movement originates from the center of our body and the muscles there help us to maintain our body's balance and posture. This is what Pilates is all about; core strength and flexibility, and posture.

This Pilates Mat workshop will introduce and work on the basics of Pilates and provide an affordable Pilates option. At the completion of the workshop you will not only feel the benefits, you will be ready to move on to other Pilates-based classes or consider appointments in the Pilates Center. Working against resistance is essential to the Pilates exercises, which are designed to train the abdomen, lower back, hips and buttocks; the core. But you can accomplish this using either a mat, where your own body weight creates resistance, or a reformer, where pulleys and springs create resistance.

By working the core muscles you improve strength and posture and develop a lean, long line. Taught by Certified Pilates Instructor.

A 6-wk workshop costs $85.

Workshops require enrollment ahead of time. Deadline to sign up is 2 days before start date.
