I loved the Matter of Balance class. It was very timely for me.  The class taught me how to get up safely after a fall.  Since taking the course, I fell in my garden.  I had taken the time to put on the right shoes, but I stepped back and tripped over a branch that was on the ground.  Everything slowed down enough where I was able to choose how to fall, that is, on my butt.  I took a minute to see if everything was ok instead of jumping up like I normally would.  I scooted over to the porch steps and got up gradually and safely.  I yelled for my husband, but he didn’t hear me. I also really appreciated it when the doctor came and spoke to the class.  I learned that everybody falls.  That was an eye opener for me.
