Senior Yoga

Yoga enhances your flexibility, but flexibility is not required in order to begin.  Clear instructions are given – both for your safety and so you can learn to do the practice on your own if you wish.  There is no pressure to perform any pose beyond your present ability.  Every class begins with a warm-up and concludes with a guided deep relaxation.  Rollin Stearns began teaching yoga at the Integral Yoga Institute in NYC in 1970.

Pink Gloves Boxing*

Pink Gloves Boxing is a fitness program that delivers an amazing workout and an emotionally rewarding experience to small communities of women*.  The fitness world is overflowing with great programs, but PGB is in a class of its own. It is the only program that puts a great deal of focus on social and emotional growth in addition to the amazing workout. At the end of each session, participants sit down and talk about the predetermined discussion topic of the day or we talk about what is on the minds of the participants.  It’s a great way to have meaningful conversations with other women.
