Creative Movement for Seniors
Presented in partnership with the West End Seniors’ Network and Barclay Manor, Linda Arkelian’s movement classes offer a series of gentle, energizing movements to calming music. The classes help improve core strength, balance, and coordination, while offering the joy of creative expression and group connectivity. The therapeutic movement sequences awaken the nervous system and reduce the stress hormone level, using breath work and self-massage techniques. As students gain an awareness of the role of breath and emotion in movement, they experience the healing of dance. Class culminates in an expressive dance sequence built upon moves learned in class.
