Progressive Meditation Class

About This Event

  • Event Type:Classes
Details:

Meditation has been shown to increase focus and mindfulness through different techniques that can help participants experience a calm and peaceful state. Through alleviating stress and increasing mindfulness, meditation is another tool for fall prevention. This virtual class will begin with breath work, followed by progressive muscle relaxation and guided imagery. Presented by Joan DePuy, RN, BSN, Trauma Outreach/Injury Prevention Coordinator for BCH and Certified Reiki Master Level Practitioner.

The biggest threat to the independence of an older adult is a simple slip and fall. Each year, one out of four Americans over age 65 will suffer a fall, and nearly 30,000 die from their injuries. Many others are left with a permanent disability that threatens their independence. Luckily, many falls can be prevented. Don’t let a fall change your life forever. Join us for free online prevention classes during the county-wide Falls Prevention Week.
