Building Bones: Classes focus on muscle strengthening and stretching. This workout is designed for women and men with osteoporosis concerns, but is good for anyone who wants to tone muscles using weights.
Ageless Yoga: You can begin yoga at any stage of life. As the body ages, muscles and joints begin to tighten. This can cause discomfort, reduce mobility and cause anxiety about one's physical well-being. You may feel stiff, inflexible, achy and unbalanced. Yoga can help you regain your flexibility and balance while reducing your aches and pains.
Flex & Stretch: This class is taught by a physical therapist and will help condition you for every day life activities. The class focuses on maintaining and/or improving your flexibility, strength and balance, to help alleviate muscle tightness, arthritis pain and stiff joints and improve balance.
Yoga: This is a traditional yoga class that includes gentle stretching, postures/poses (Asana), conditioning exercises, breathing techniques (Pranayama) and relaxation/meditation. This class is ideal for the beginner or the experienced student. Class is taught with various modifications to address all physical abilities. This class includes a longer meditation/relaxation period where various techniques are taught to manage stress and induce a relaxed state.
Fitness and Yoga classes are offered weekly. Prices vary due to the length of the class session.
