Brawn and Brains – Exercise and Cognitive Strength

A Workout for Your Body and Mind

A Be Balanced Community Event

Join us on Thursday, February 22nd at 5:45pm for an exercise class that not only strengthens the body, but the mind.

Recent studies have been exploring the connection between physical exercise and cognitive function.  Working out mindfully and completely focused at the task at hand – including your breath, your posture, your frame of mind – not only makes you more productive in your workout, it also helps strengthen your cognitive function.  By bringing focus and challenge to your workout, you can literally strengthen the entire body and mind.

Join us for a 1 hour class that will challenge you physical and mentally and change the way you look at your workout.

Class is free, but space is limited.  Please click HERE to RSVP.
