Mobility & Movement — The Benefits of Arthrokinematic Health

When | Tuesday, April 7 | 7—8 pm
Where | AVAC Conference Room
Cost | Free
Instructor | Jon Cebula, AVAC Personal Trainer
RSVP | Mary Ann Smith

Movement. It’s something that we do every day. Whether it’s walking to the car, putting the groceries away, playing outside with the kids or just doing your normal chores; every day you move. But, how well do you move? What is the quality of your movement? Are your movements painful? Are they limited? Do you truly understand HOW to move?

The above questions are asked to begin to get you thinking about your joint health. Arthrokinematics is a scientific term used to describe the specific movements of the articulating joint surfaces. Joint Mobility is the effective practice of implementing a structured and progressive exercise program designed to improve and increase joint health and function by improving quality of movement, increasing range of motion,
increasing blood circulation, and improving over-all general joint function.

This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about Joint Health, to ask questions, and to sample what a “Mobility Class” is all about.

  • Learn how to open and expand your movements
  • Learn how to move with control, precision, and purpose
  • Learn how to move this wonderful thing we call our “body”


Financial Fitness & Estate Planning

(*Note: This event was rescheduled from March 3)

When | Tuesday, May 5 | 7 pm
Where | AVAC Conference Room
Presenter | Diane Brown, Attorney at Law
Cost | Free:-)
RSVP Becky Smothermon

This session will focus on explaining the pros and cons of trusts, as well as other documents that can be prepared to provide for the management of assets if the owner becomes incapacitated or dies. Like many things in life (for example, going to the dentist!), failure to plan ahead will cost the estate more than the initial planning would have. My job is to keep you and your loved ones out of court. It’s your money..Let’s keep it that way!
