Movement for Life; Preserving Your Independence, Part 1


As we age, we become more prone to devastating falls and injuries. Multiple factors conspire to reduce our mobility. A leader in addressing these challenges is Hedy Iankelevich, founder of Movement for Life, an ongoing series of online classes for 65+ individuals aimed at restoring function and preserving independence. Trained in yoga, postural techniques, biomechanics and breath work, Hedy discovered her new mission after working with her father to restore his mobility. The outgrowth is a program that emphasizes functional movement rather than mere strength training and endurance, traditionally the focus of exercise programs. Is it ever too late to start? What gains can be expected even if you don’t have a background in athletics? What are some simple exercises you can do at home with minimal equipment? How can balance be fortified?
