N’Balance

Every Thursday, 1:15 p.m.

This dynamic evidence-based class will help you improve your balance and decrease your risks for falls. We work on dynamic balance facilitation, CORE strengthening, gait skills and coordination. This class is taught by physical therapists Pat Aden and Gini Patterson who are certified N’Balance instructors. Optional class donations accepted. Please contact Gini at (303) 810-6879 or Pat at (970) 668-1812.

Tai Chi

Tuesdays, 9 a.m.

Evidence has shown Dr. Paul Lam’s Tai Chi for Arthritis program helps prevent falls and improves health and the quality of life for older adults. Tai chi movements appear gentle and graceful, but they contain much power and internal strength. This is an excellent opportunity to come and learn more about this exercise. Facilitator Kim Greene will review the basic principles of tai chi and provide a demonstration of its fundamental forms.

Yoga

Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, 10:00 a.m.

Yoga classes vary depending on the instructor, but all focus on breathing, balance, strength and flexibility. All levels are welcome. Most people leave a $5 tip for the instructor as they are not paid, however tipping is voluntary and not a requirement. Non members are also welcome but are charged $10 per class. Mats are available. Staying fit or getting fit really helps one enjoy the other activities available to you here in Summit County.
