Estes Valley Recreation and Park District (EVRPD), provider of numerous recreational and community activities in the Estes Valley, is pleased to offer an eight-week N’Balance class series at the new Estes Valley Community Center. The class is sponsored by a grant from the Larimer County Office on Aging as part of a fall prevention initiative. N’Balance is an evidenced based program developed by the Consortium for Older Adult Wellness. This is a progressive exercise class that will help you feel better, decrease falls, and increase self-confidence and independence. Certified N’ Balance instructors Kelly Claypool and Beth Headley will lead the class.
The eight-week series will be held twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m., April 3 through May 24. There is no cost, however, donations to the Larimer County Office on Aging are welcome. Registration is open now and must be done in person at the Community Center. Registration for the series includes a brief pre-assessment. Contact Instructor Kelly Claypool at 970-586-8191 to learn more. Class participants must be at least 60 years old and a resident of Larimer County.
The class includes pre- and post-test assessments which measure lower body strength, agility, and balance. During the class, you will learn tips on how to keep your balance if you feel like you are going to fall and give your body the strength and training it needs to have better balance.
