The Ursuline Center is expanding its Healthways SilverSneakers® Fitness offerings to include SilverSneakers YogaStretch on Saturday from 9:00 to 10:00 am. Please park in the Pool parking lot and enter the SilverSneaker room via the east side of Motherhouse.
This class is designed for older adults, leading them through a series of seated and standing yoga poses. Chair support is offered to safely perform a variety of postures that are designed to increase flexibility, balance and range of movement. Restorative breathing exercises and final relaxation help promote stress reduction and mental clarity. All stretches and poses will be done standing or seated in a chair.
This class is geared toward those who have not been practicing yoga or have never practiced yoga or have some physical limitations that would deter them from attending a traditional yoga class. “It is a very gentle, relaxed pace and not meant to challenge our cardiovascular condition,” states Paul Joseph, the certified instructor who will lead the SilverSneakers yoga class at The Ursuline Center.
The goals of the classes are to improve overall fitness, promote health education, especially as it relates to health status issues, and encourage social interaction in a group setting.
To enroll, call Sister Jan at 330.799.4941 or email The Ursuline Center.
