Healthy Bones and Body Class Wednesdays from 10:30-11:15 am.
I hope you are all keeping yourselves safe and healthy during these challenging times. Dottie, Becky, and I have been working on putting together a remote HBB class using ZOOM. The first class is scheduled for 10:30 on Wed, April 1. Feel free to join us if you are a "regular" or if this is your first time. The group is experimenting with this technology and all are welcome: https://zoom.us/download. We will update with a meeting code prior to Wed.
This class is for everyone, regardless of ability. Start slow or add more! You will do simple seated stretches to warm up, and then use 1-5 pound had and /or ankle weights to gradually increase muscle and bone mass. This is one of the best fall prevention programs available! It is evidence-based and led by trained senior leaders.

Walking in the warmer weather
A brisk walk around town is great excercise. We have walkable sidewalks and friendly folks along the way. We would love to have a walking group in town! If you're interested in helping to get this group going, please "step up". Call for more information: 498-2186
Robin McKeon has a great class for those just starting at 4:45 Mondays. The fee is $15 to drop in, $40 for the month or $110 for 10 classes. This is a wonderful way to find out about those muscles we don't know we need! Robin will help you accomodate any restrictions of movement you may have. You must be able to get down on the floor. Classes are held in the basement of the Unitarian Church across from the Town Hall.
