What particpants say….

“A Matter of Balance made me more aware of what can be done to assure safety at home. The class provided a definite time each week to meet and discuss concerns with others. I wish we had even more exercise activities at each class. Great to share and learn!”

“It has benefited all of us… we feel stronger and in more control of our bodies. …I believe it has changed some people’s lives.”

“I’m already noticing a difference in my physical being. I’m sure I’m a little more mobile than I had been and plan to continue these exercises. Hopefully, I’ll be jumping over the moon – soon!”
