Each class is research based and incorporates balance, stretching, strengthening, postural awareness, coordination and gait. The class is highly aerobic and designed to help drive neuroprotection (to slow degeneration) and neuroplasticity (to change the brain and maintain old connections, form new ones and restore lost ones). To drive neuroplasticity, the classes focus on delivering exercises with the accurate intensity, specificity, difficulty and complexity. Music, the use of the metronome and Balance Matters equipment is integrated into the class to help improve performance, amplitude, speed and symmetry of movement.
