We here at AGEC (Arkansas Geriatric Education Collaborative) love our older adults, loyal followers, caregivers, and care recipients! During this time we know many of you are staying close to home and due to temporary closures, you’re probably unable to do your normal exercises and classes at your community fitness centers. We at AGEC want to help you all stay healthy and active.
Beginning Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at 11 a.m. and every following Wednesday at the same time until further notice, we will be offering “Ageless Grace” via Facebook.
If you can’t make it on Wednesdays at 11 a.m., watch and exercise along with the replay videos below anytime, as many times as you’d like! If you’re new to Ageless Grace, it is a brain health exercise program designed to be done right from your chair. In total, the Ageless Grace program contains 21 different tools to promote all 5 functions of the brain. The goal is to create movement, try something new you have not done before, move core muscles, organs, and energy centers. The movements stimulate the body, initiate a brain-body link that can positively affect attitude, as well as maintain and increase cognitive function.
All you need to participate is a sturdy, stable chair that ideally has arms. Place your chair in an area where you have enough room around you to move in a full range of motion with your arms and legs. Be prepared to laugh, and have some fun.
We invite you to please join us every Wednesday on Facebook at 11 a.m. for Ageless Grace!
