Maintaining Mobility: Six Week Series | San Francisco Village


Our vibrant programming is the gateway through which members gain empowering information, share experiences, and develop a deep sense of belonging to the community. At a time when older adults may find their social networks shrinking, San Francisco Village programs offer opportunities to expand. Programs are continually evolving, reflecting the interests and requests of our dynamic membership, and generally fall into one of six categories: Healthy Aging, Express Yourself, Member-Led, Connections Across Generations, Navigating Today’s World, and Exploring San Francisco.

On average, San Francisco Village hosts 30 program events per month. Take a look at our calendar and get involved!

Maintaining Mobility: Six Week Series

Every Thursday starting 03/15/18 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM Until 4/19/2018 PST

We will practice movements of everyday life-such walking steadily and confidently through a crowded room, reaching, getting up and down from a chair or other low surface, turning direction, taking stairs and anything else that concerns you. As you learn more efficient ways of moving, you will also find yourself moving with more grace and pleasure. We will use techniques from the many physical disciplines–physical therapy, Feldenkrais, martial arts–and this makes the class a lot of fun. The class content is designed to carry over into daily life. We are not merely exercising; we are practicing a new way of moving through the world. Penny Sablove specializes in improving the mobility of seniors. She has been developing senior programs to improve balance, gait, agility, endurance and strength for over 20 years for community organizations, including Osher Livelong Learning Institute and as a physical therapist at Kaiser Permanente. She is also a 5th degree black belt in the Japanese martial art of Aikido and she has created an adapted form of this art for seniors and people with disabilities.

Registration for this event is closed.

“It’s about staying engaged both in the home and out of the home … It’s about familiarity with others at a time in life that is rich and full of surprises, and it’s about having fun with other city-dwellers who value a common lifestyle.”
