Many seniors begin to lose balancing skills before age 50, making them more susceptible to falls. Seniors who work to improve balance have a better chance of preventing falls and maintaining their independent lifestyles. Each week the class will focus on exercises that gradually lengthen the muscle spindle. These exercises, which can then be continued at home, will help to build muscle strength, leading to better balance and stability.


Instructor Noreen Gosch, a certified yoga master, has taught yoga classes, including chair yoga, for more than 45 years. She has taught both balance and chair yoga classes for Senior College and the DM and WDM continuing education programs.nlisk has been employed by the IDPH for 23 years. She was trained as a field epidemiologist in CDC’s Epidemic Intelligence Service and is a professor at four universities. She is on the Board of Scientific Counselors to the CDC and is in a national working group to determine how to prevent outbreaks of mumps.
