Presented by Carol Iverson

 

Mondays 10-11am (Free for our 60 and  community members)

 

Basic Movements: This class will introduce you to the anatomy, physiology and alignment of your body. The movements are designed to relax, stretch and strengthen every aspect of the body. Movements are presented in a way that participants can safely perform joint and spinal movements, standing strength and balance positions, and enhance posture alignment. Many movements will have options that can be done in a chair or with a chair/wall for support. This class is appropriate for most seniors and anyone who wants a slow, grounded, physically regenerative practice. 

 

Tuesdays: 5:30 to 6:30pm - except the fourth Tuesdays

 

Energizing: This class includes the benefits of the basic movements (above) and will be more challenging with complex and/or strenuous movements, possibly including weights, sometimes holding in positions to increase endurance and physical capacity and sometimes done in a continuous flow. Some regular prior physical practice is highly recommended.

 

 

Bring a Mat if you have one otherwise we will have some available.
