As we age, it’s important to explore exercise that will sustain our health and keep us moving for the rest of our lives. Instead of diminishing movement, this class amplifies range of motion while integrating modifications for common age-related mobility issues such as shoulder, knee and hip restrictions and arthritis. This is a gentler version of the Strength, Balance and Flexibility for Seniors class. The class includes seated mobility stretch, strengthening exercises for limbs and core and standing balance exercises. The slower pace allows older students or those who are just coming back to exercise to feel more energized, less pain and more confidence in their bodies.
"This class is a perfect level for us with the right balance of chair and floor exercises and just the right amount of challenge. Your music, your explanations, your pacing and your analogies are superb and enormously helpful. Your emphasis on breathing and posture is so important and usually not incorporated in other exercise classes that we have tried. We look forward to joining you each week."
