FREEPORT, ILLINOIS — The inner ear plays an important part in balance – the complex relationship between what the eyes see, the body feels, and the movement sensed by the semicircular canals in the inner ear. Explore the connection between yoga and balance at a free FHN workshop.
FHN Audiologist Anneliese Hartman, AuD will talk about how to train the body’s balance organs to work better with the body. Your Core Being founder, E-R.Y.T. yoga instructor, and integrative health coach Pat Leitzen-Fye will lead the group in some basic yoga poses to help build strength and improve balance.
The workshop will begin at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, March 13 at Your Core Being, 107 W. Main Street in Freeport. Registration is required for this free event; register online at www.fhn.org/yogaandbalance or by calling toll-free 1-877-6000-FHN (1-877-600-0346) ext. 901.
Participants should wear comfortable clothing to move in, and since yoga is practiced barefoot, may also opt to receive a free foot health screening at the event.
