STRENGTH TRAINING CLASSES                     

Both the gentle/moderate and advanced strength training classes focus on functional, full-body, multi-muscle exercises designed to support the activities of daily living. They are challenging enough to get results, yet gentle enough to avoid overuse or injury. Benefits include increased muscle and bone density, stronger tendons and ligaments, overall resistance to injury, improved posture and balance, better body awareness and cognitive abilities, enhanced cardiovascular health and blood sugar control, and functional independence. Dress in comfortable workout clothes and bring water to stay hydrated.

Tai Chi Classes                      

Tai Chi is a system of gentle, graceful, focused movements performed slowly with deep breathing. An ancient Chinese self-defense tradition, Tai Chi is now typically practiced as purposeful movement that stretches and strengthens the body, reduces stress, and brings a sense of well-being. It improves balance, spatial awareness, coordination, range of motion, energy, and endurance. Tai Chi is low impact and generally safe for all ages and fitness levels. Wear loose, comfortable clothing and athletic shoes, and bring water.

Yoga and Chair Yoga Classes                     

Yoga

Yoga is a movement, relaxation, and meditation technique that supports mental clarity, breathing, balance, strength, endurance, and flexibility. All of our yoga classes are beginner-friendly, guided by qualified instructors, non-competitive, fun, and supportive. Participants work at their own pace, modifying poses when needed, and breathing consciously while moving. For maximum benefits, participants should be able to get up and down from the floor with minimal difficulty, except in Chair Yoga, where participants perform sitting and standing poses with the support of a chair.

Impact Level:  Low

Intensity:  Gentle to Moderate

Chair Yoga

Chair Yoga incorporates all of the spine’s key movements from the security of a seated position or a supported standing position. Neck, shoulder, hip, knee, wrist and ankle mobility is explored without speed or stress to mobilize joints safely and build/maintain strength and length without fatigue or falling. The movements are smooth and slow and ride upon your breath, increasing lung capacity and vitality while soothing your mind into a state of calm concentration.

Impact level:  Gentle/low

Please bring a yoga mat, yoga strap (or necktie/scarf), and a yoga block. Wear layered clothing or have a blanket handy as your body will cool during the final relaxation pose.

Water Aerobics                   

Aquatic exercise provides a cardio and light resistance workout to help participants maintain strength and stability and preserve balance, range of motion and mobility. Due to the buoyancy of water, which helps support a portion of your weight, water aerobics will reduce your risk of stress injuries. Exercises are designed for both deep and shallow water; therefore, the ability to swim is NOT required.  Classes are offered in a warm-water pool, and a certified lifeguard will be present at all times. Flotation belts are available at no additional cost.  Each session lasts 45 minutes.

Impact level: Low

Intensity:  Moderate, but can be adjusted for individual needs.

>Mat Pilates

Pilates is a gentle yet challenging non-impact exercise that focuses on control, breathing, and improving coordination and balance. This class is great for both your mind and body and is designed to strengthen your core muscles using a combination of floor work on mats and weights to improve your upper body strength. When exercising on a regular basis, Pilates has proven to help improve flexibility and aid in preventing some of the limitations that accompany aging.  Pilates is an excellent program for those wanting a non-impact workout with toning for the core, legs, and arms. Bring a mat, towel, and water. Weights are provided, but participants may also bring their own.

Zumba                   

Zumba features a dance-based program using many world rhythms including Latin, Indian, and American. The music ranges in intensity from low to moderate. This workout is fun with easy-to-follow dance moves that keep your heart rate slightly elevated to help burn calories. Wear smooth soled shoes that allow for movement on the carpet. Zumba carpet gliders or dance socks are recommended. Bring water and dress in layers so that you can be comfortable as you get warmer during the workout and cooler as we cool down.

Intensity:  Moderate
