POSTPONED: Movement for Longevity

Spring Session March 23rd – May 1st, Aquatics April 9th – May 14th

Thank you for your interest in Movement for Longevity!  These classes focus on low-impact, slow, gentle movements.  They are intended for individuals at all stages of life, regardless of fitness level.  Below is a list of class offerings.

Tai Chi: Performed in a slow, rhythmic, continuous motion which relaxes the body and helps promote blood circulation, and improve balance and posture.  You will notice strengthened muscles and joints while developing concentration and awareness, relieving pain, fatigue, tension and stress.

Strength Training and Balance: A class designed for you! This low-impact strength training class combines movement and resistance for maximum results. This class will target muscle-building, balance and core strength by utilizing resistance bands, Pilates balls, and your own body weight!  Chairs are available as needed for ease and comfort.

SilverSneakers Classic: SilverSneakers Classic focuses on strengthening muscles and  increasing range of movement for daily life activities.  Participants can use their own body weight, hand-held weights, elastic bands, and Pilates balls.  Often times a chair is used for seated exercises or standing support.

Sunrise Yoga: In the Yogic discipline, the morning is considered a “divine time” and when an individual’s spiritual energy is at it’s peak.  Clarity and creativity are benefits of a sunrise yoga to prepare you for the day ahead.

Awaken your body, bring peace of mind, and energize yourself through a series of stretches, basic yoga poses, and open heart postures. We have yoga mats, but if you are more comfortable with yours, please feel free to bring it!

Aquatics at Lakeside Wellness Center: Strengthen and build muscle with a shallow water exercise class designed to give you a complete workout. Each class includes cardio, strength and flexibility.

Take advantage of the natural resistance of water, which is 12 times the resistance of walking on land with this total body workout. All fitness levels welcome. Try it out, you’ll love it! *Locker room amenities are available including showers, towels, and toiletries.
