YOGA Classes and Workshops
“Dem Bones” An Introduction to Yoga for Osteoporosis Workshop Saturday, September 30th.
This two and one half hour workshop is for anyone who wants to build healthier bones and reduce the risk of fractures. You will learn information about bone health and osteopenia/osteoporosis, including causes, consequences, and treatments. You will also learn and practice the 12 pose yoga sequence designed by a doctor to help combat osteoporosis. This workshop is led by Margie Terrell, e-RYT, who has been teaching yoga since 1999.
Yoga is designed to relieve stress, improve balance, strength, flexibility and boost the immune system. The Sports & Rec Center offers Hatha Yoga, control of the body and mind. Each session focuses on learning basic yoga poses and progressing toward stringing postures together. Our Yoga program offers beginner, mixed levels, and intermediate level classes to meet your needs.
A yoga class especially for those who, due to age, health issues, injury, weight challenges or limited balance or mobility can find it difficult to get down on the floor. Now a chair becomes your mat! Just about any pose that can be done standing, sitting or laying on a mat can be adapted to sitting on a chair. Everyone, beginner to advanced, is accommodated as each pose is presented in multiple levels of flexibility. The class includes breathing, stretching, strengthening, relaxation and fun – all while sitting on a chair.
If this is your first time trying Chair Yoga, we offer three chair classes. Each one is a tiny bit different from the others. Please feel free to try each of them before you sign up. The classes on Wednesday and Fridays are limited to 15 students each.
Gentle Yoga embraces moment-to-moment mindfulness through fluid breath. It incorporates gentle physical postures, breathing exercises, and guided relaxation. This class is especially good for anyone who needs a less active yoga practice.
Joint Freeing Chair Yoga
This class is designed to work every single joint in the body. Instead of getting on and off the floor, you will use a chair as your base. This special yoga class is great for cancer and heart patients and especially for those with Rheumatoid Arthritis or other physically-limiting ailments.
Mixed Levels Yoga
These Yoga classes are designed to accommodate anyone who wants to take a Yoga class…from beginner to more experienced. You will learn both basic and advanced poses that will help you learn how to breath, stretch, and relax.
Core and Tone
Experience a total body workout. The class consists of exercises to stabilize and strengthen the core muscles (back, hips, glutes and abdominal muscles), sculpt upper and lower body muscles with hand weights and stretch the body to improve flexibility. There will be an emphasis on proper alignment for safe and effective results. All levels of experience welcome. Modifications of all exercises will be given if needed. If possible, bring a mat or blanket and a bottle of water.
Pilates is a non-impact, non-weight bearing system of physical conditioning that focuses on body placement and increasing awareness of the body’s capabilities and untapped resources. Pilates makes bodies fit and strong by slimming the muscles and making them longer and leaner. Pilates works the abdomen, lower back and hips to make it a more firm, central support system for your body. You will need a mat, water and towel.
Active Older Adults
Adult Beginner Tap
Two classes are offered for tappers:
1.Beginner Tap is designed for adults who want to learn how to tap dance or who have not taken tap in quite a while.
2.Beginner Tap “Plus” is for those who know tap basics, have taken tap for a while, and want more of a challenge.
CUMC member Rick Wiedeman has taught Okinawan karate since 1994. He leads a class that is both authentic and good-natured, emphasizing basics, forms, and self-defense with no competitive sparring. The only equipment required is a plain white karate-gi (uniform). For ages 10 and up. This class meets on Saturdays in the Sports & Rec Center.
Tai Chi is an ancient fitness technique regarded as one of the best forms of exercise for older adults. It is great for balance and it’s free!
