Stretching Toward a More Active Life
Today we are discovering that active people lead fuller lives. They have more stamina, resist illness and have more self-confidence; they are less depressed and often, even late in life, are still working energetically at new projects.
Exercise Class: Stretching and strengthening. Tue, Mar 20 & Thu, Mar 22, 9-10am. St. Paul’s Church, Cardo 6. Donation
Medical research has shown that a great deal of poor health is directly related to a lack of physical activity. Especially as we age we should not forget our bodies, which will take us through the rest of our lives.
The class will explore ways of stretching and strengthening our muscles that will be easy on the body and not painful. You do not have to push the limits or attempt to go further each day. We will exercise at our own level to increase flexibility, reduce muscular tension and promote circulation. Although the class is geared towards seniors, all adults are welcome to attend.
Participants should bring two hand weights (or water bottles) and a bottle of drinking water. Wear athletic shoes and loose clothing for ease of movement. If you are interested, contact the instructor at firstname.lastname@example.org BS Degree in Physical Education, or just show up at the class. (All exercises performed sitting or standing with the support of chairs.)
