“Fall Prevention” or “Balance Protection”? How to Transform Fitness Programs – And Ourselves – As We Age
For Marcy Simon age is not a factor in fitness. In this conversation she will talk about her innovative approach to developing movement programs that harness your inner and outer strength and motivate you to keep moving at any age to re-form your health.
More About Marcy Simon:
Marcy has been dancing since the age of 3 or possibly from the minute she could stand up. She has been a professional dancer, choreographer, teacher and studio owner in NYC throughout the years and has also managed to raise an amazing son (not a dancer). Her career has seen many transitions through the decades, however, dance and movement have always been part of her journey. Having spent the last 15 years working with different populations, specifically older adults and people with mental health challenges, it became clear that movement and dance are life sustaining, healing forces. Marcy has developed successful fitness and dance programs for several non-profit organizations including a well recognized balance protection intervention as well as a Barre Series that she continues to teach. Marcy is proud to have been a significant part of the innovative senior center launch in NYC that created more comprehensive fitness and wellness programming for older adults. Generation ReFORM has been designed for all of us who have decided to keep it moving and maintain our ability through high quality, challenging and progressive fitness offerings. Marcy has an M.A. in Dance Education from Columbia University as well as certifications in Personal Training, Yoga and Gyrotonics.
