In placing the older adult population at the center of our social hierarchy, MINDING MOTION For Graceful Aging promotes the integration of physical, intellectual, creative, emotional, and social functioning; enhancing human potential and self-awareness.
We believe in emphasizing dance, music and creative physical activities as tools for instilling sociability, empowerment and self-esteem. In doing so, we alter how the participants view themselves, their conditions and the environment.
We believe in helping the participants (re) gain a sense of independence and self worth. In doing so, we help to making aging joyful regardless of their physical or cognitive abilities.
We believe in helping the participants achieve their maximum human potential. In doing so, we lessen the complexities of medical conditions thriving towards a more graceful aging.
