Balance & Fall Prevention
As part of our mission, the Y seeks to support every older adult with their desire to stay active and healthy in spirit, mind and body. Because falls are the leading cause of injuries among older adults, the Y offers two Fall Prevention Programs for seniors: A Matter of Balance and Moving for Better Balance. These programs help participants improve balance through strength, coordination and increased flexibility. Classes are offered at a variety of locations in our region, including YMCA facilities, senior centers, and other community locations in El Paso and Teller Counties.
