challenges that naturally accompany aging. One of the
main reasons people over the age of 60 visit a doctor is

mental and physiological sharpness as we age, there is
mounting evidence that supports the wisdom of the cliche "use

research has confirmed that our brains maintain "plasticity"
as we age, meaning that neural network development does not
remain fixed and that, in fact, you can teach "old dogs" new
tricks. If you could do something for as little as 15 minutes,
twice each day, to reduce or delay or the onset of balance and
cognitive decline, would you? Even more enticing to
older clients is the idea that you are never too old to
increase the brain's processing power and the real prospect of improving the quality of
life even as we mature beyond the family-raising

other balance related difficulties. On the surface, the

program's integral balance challenge, also improve the way we
control our bodies and their position in space which helps
