Pickleball is Back

Water Fitness Classes are here again!

Join Elaine for Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) Back Sequence seated in a chair or on the floor to stretch all the muscles along your spine. The important 4 principles are to isolate the muscle to be stretched; hold the stretch for only 2 seconds; repeat 6 - 10 times; move with breath (exhaling on the stretch and inhale back to neutral) and always keep your abdominals active and braced! Enjoy! Elaine
Exercise with caution for those who may be suffering from osteoporosis or a herniated disk
 
 
 
Join Caryn Beth for [email protected]! Below are links to three 30-minute classes, each complete with a variety of cardio, strength, core and dynamic stretch movements. Bring along two peanut butter jars, soup cans or filled water bottles for weights, or use only body weight. The most important part of each workout is your breath. More to come soon. Best wishes for good health and safety.
