New PK Silver Class at Senior Center

β€œFalls, with or without injury, also carry a heavy quality of life impact. A growing number of older adults fear falling and, as a result, limit their activities and social engagements. This can result in further physical decline, depression, social isolation, and feelings of helplessness. The most profound effect of falling is the loss of independent living.” (Comfortkeepers.com)

^^^ This is why we do what we do!!! Today we had a wonderful PK Silver class with our friends at the Charles Houston Senior Center. πŸ’– We are excited to be working with this fun & lively group to build strength and practice balance!

Some of the participant feedback:

  • β€œI loved it! I want to do it again!”
  • β€œI did not know what to expect, but now that I know what it is, I like it and want to do it again.”
  • β€œThat was fun!”
  • β€œI didn’t think I could balance [on the precision trainer] but I did it!”
  • β€œCan I go [through the obstacle course] again?”

Toilet Paper Challenge!Β 

Stocking up the bathroom supplies resulted in a toilet paper balance challenge. At PKMove,
we believe the joy of movement (pun intended) should be inherent to daily living. How many rolls can you walk with balanced on your head? Don’t forget to hashtag  #toiletpaperbalancechallenge and please follow us on Instagram @pkmove for more photos of our activities!

Hold on to Your Tea Cups!Β 

PK Move had a photo shoot today with Altabs Photography.  We are preparing for the parkour art exhibit which will be at St. Elmo’s Coffee Pub from August 15th through September 5th.  The exhibit, part of PK Move’s Kick-Off Party and fundraising  event, features parkour movement and balances by PK Move students, friends, and coaches.  It is meant to demonstrate our class activities and highlight the joy anyone can experience through play and movement.  The show is being shot and curated by our own Mark Albert C. Altabano, a wonderful photographer, parkour fan, and supporter of PKMove. He has generously donated all his time and talent to this project. A huge shout out to Altabs Photography! Thank you!  PS Because we know you worry: no Royal Doulton was harmed during today’s photo session.
