  • At The Core

    Whether we enjoy a variety of physical activities or prefer to not be active at all, we can all benefit from focusing on keeping our core healthy. The "core" refers to the muscles from the chest to mid-thigh, on the front, side and back of the body. In this short series of classes we will use body-weight movements, weights (as appropriate) and other small implements to increase strength and mobility of the core muscles. Greater strength and mobility in the back, chest, abdominal and hip muscles can help us improve balance and stability to better navigate our daily, functional movements. Variations of the movements will be offered to support a variety of needs and interests. This course is available both for in-person participation or virtual on Zoom.
