Health isn't age-dependent. It comes with a way of life that fullfils our natural needs.
This doesn't only include natural food but also diverse movement, community, values, purpose, manageable challenges and the ability to autonomously solve them.
Last spring we launched outdoor classes for seniors which support people in reviving and expanding their natural movement skills.
With lots of humour and customized progressions participants quickly pluck up, get nimbler and, step by step, master even moves that beginningly seem impossible to them.
The newly gained confidence and vitality foster an upward spiral which enhances health and allows you to reclaim indipendency and freedom in everyday life as well:
"My joint pains abated. I feel stronger and can breathe deeply again." "My gait improved." (72, Hip replacement) "Climbing stairs I no longer need a handrail!" "Gardening is much easier again." "I can now don pants standing."
Thus you embark on a journey that enables you to live freely and in tune with your values right up until old age.

Some days you do something amazing, some days it's amazing that you do something ;)
On such days it's especially helpful to play
For this variant you put down a self-chosen number of objects -- either of differing colours or just various things you carry with you -- like garments, backpack, waterbottle...
A partner calls out to you which of these items you have to touch and in what order. Either by using the items' colour or name -- or mixing the both.
That's to say a series could go: Green, turquoise, neon, cap, black, bottle a.s.o.
The more options you include, the more difficult it becomes to remember the exact sequence -- so you can choose to either get only few items called out at a time and focus on speed and reaction or get the whole long sequence and practice remembering it while weaving your way.
Many thanks to Nikkie Zanevsky of Wildly Fit who recently shared this great idea. I love her approach. She's full of amazing, playful ideas. Go see for yourself!
