Getting Grounded Gracefully is a series of 16 lessons specifically designed to help older people who may be at risk of falling, decrease their risk of falling and improve their balance. It also aims to help older people undertake more physical activity.
The program is very gentle and aims to increase a person’s awareness of how they organise themselves to balance, to stand, to move and to walk. It is an exercise program which explores how we can be more intelligent in how we move.
The program explores movement and balance in sitting, in the transition from sitting to standing, in standing, and then becomes an exploration of the possibility of walking with ease.
