Event Details

Restoring Movement Through Recreation Workshop

This workshop has been designed for recreation, activity and health care professionals who are delivering exercise, movement and physical activity programs to older adults living in retirement, residential and home care settings. 

All too often recreation providers are tasked with delivering programs and initiatives in all of the dimensions of wellness and rarely have time to further their knowledge and skills in the area of movement, physical activity and fitness.

This FREE workshop introduces health and recreation professionals to three innovative approaches they can use to maximize participation and promote movement through recreation.

This training is for any recreation and health professional who wants to...

  • Understand the importance of incorporating motor, sensory and cognitive stimulation into recreation and movement based programs.

  • Learn three practical, evidenced informed strategies to promote movement, exercise and overall functional well-being with older adults. 

  • Better understand how the principles of physical literacy and restorative care can be used to enhance the quality of recreation programs and interventions. 

The concepts taught in this workshop promote health through movement and draw upon the principles of physical literacy and restorative care.
