INSPIRING THE MIND TO FREE THE BODY

Minding Motion for Graceful Aging is a leader in the development of individualized artistically driven movement programs to keep our aging population physically, cognitively, and emotionally healthy. Developed from inception with the specific aim of serving aging populations to help them thrive.

WE BELIEVE

In instilling sociability, empowerment and self-esteem through dance, music and creative physical and mental activities. In doing so, we alter how the participants view themselves, their condition and environment.

In guiding participants to achieve their maximum human potential. In doing so, we help alleviate the symptoms of medical conditions by increasing cognitive function, range of motion, balance, and strength to liberate participants.

In helping participants (re)gain their sense of independence and self-worth. In doing so, we help make aging graceful.

WE OFFER

A broad range of classes that subtly incorporate creative movement, strength, and flexibility exercises with memorization games to help participants maintain and improve their physical stability, balance, range of motion, neurological function, and social skills.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US

Minding Motion is one of our residents’ favorite classes to attend.   Juan and his staff engage the residents body, mind and soul for an incredible session of movement and creativity.  I love to watch the joy on the residents’ faces as they’re moving and as they come out of the class.  It takes the residents out of their usual personal/safe space and helps them expand and explore more than they have in years.  At first they are always a bit hesitant to try something new and different, but one class- and they’re hooked! We are so grateful to have this program benefiting our residents!
