    **Date/Time: Mondays, 4:00-5:00 p.m. Location: Redwood City Armory
    **Description: Focus on movements and techniques for improving stride length as well as tempo and stability. Attention will also focus on foot an hip function and the role they play in movement quality. We will also review movement patterns with activities contributing to gait which would include sit-to-stand, ground-to-stand, upper extremity activities, and posture. We will identify which muscles are firing or not at appropriate times during the gait cycle. The secondary goal of the class is to be able to multi-task with these movements.
