Su Casa: Seniors learning Parcon!

Where: La Corsi House Senior Center in East Harlem, NYC, NY

When: January through June 2018

Who: Seniors at the La Corsi House

What: Su Casa Residency: Teacher of regular classes in Parcon to Seniors at the La Corsi Senior House. Here we are exploring how to say No with our bodies. We are currently using the Berg Balance Test as a way to draw seniors in. It is a Physical Therapy test that I have used with patients, then we are tying Parcon exercises to each assessment in the test. The eventual goal of this project is to have these seniors participate in intergenerational classes and dialogue at the public park, June 23, 2018 (stay tuned!)
