Pool Classes

Water Aerobics - Rondi

A combo of aqua aerobics, aqua dance, aqua yoga, aqua singing + laughing + occasional shouting, with great music and attention paid to posture and joy!

Water Walking - Debbie

Using senior water fitness routines designed by a physical therapist, we combine aerobic routines for mobility and agility and light water-weights for strengthening. The routines can be as easy or as challenging as you prefer depending on your fitness goals. We have lots of fun, too!

Aqua Aerobics - Kristine

A high energy, full body, 60 minute workout in the water that is gentle on your knees. You control how hard you want to work out. Beginning with warm up, leg presses with the noodle, followed by 35 minutes of aerobics and weight lifting, ending with abs, a cooldown and stretching. You will sleep well after this amazing workout!

Land Classes

Total Toning - Marie

Total Toning class is for anyone at any fitness level who wants a complete workout to a variety of fun music including blues, rock, pop, Latin, and country. We start with a 10 minute warmup, sometimes adding very easy dance steps. We pick up the pace to increase our heart rates for 15 minutes, then switch to full body conditioning work using weights, bands, and balls. Class ends with 10 minutes of stretches and deep breathing.

Zumba - Claudine, Mary, Ture

Zumba is an hour of dynamic, dance-based movement set to a playlist of mixed tunes and intensity levels from start to finish. Each class begins with a warm-up, followed by songs of varying styles and rhythms (each one with its own routine), and ends with a cool-down and stretching. Dance experience is not necessary to participate. Our goal is simple: We want you to move, to have a great time doing it, and to come back for more!

Zumba Gold - Claudine

Zumba Gold is a low-impact, simplified version of Zumba. It still follows the same format of dynamic, dance-based movement set to a playlist of mixed tunes that each have their own choreography. It's a great lower-intensity dance fitness option as well as an “on-ramp” if you’re new to Zumba classes. Like Zumba, dance experience is not required to participate!

Zumba KIDS - Ture

Zumba Kids combines elements of dance, aerobics and cultural exploration (Latin and World music, rhythms and activities) into an engaging and empowering movement class for kids. The format of the kids' class includes broken down steps, kid-friendly routines, and games/activities for kids to interact with and support each other. Students get opportunities to follow along, lead, build on their learning, be part of a group and stand out/shine in appropriate ways.

Tai Ji for Balance - Evy

Tai Ji Quan Moving for Better Balance® (TJQMBB) is an evidence-based fall prevention program designed for older adults. Developed by Fuzhong Li, Ph.D., Senior Scientist at the Oregon Research Institute, TJQMBB draws from traditional martial arts-based movements, but applies movement in a therapeutic regimen of lessons aimed at improving balance. The series begins with gentler exercises and progresses week-by-week to stronger practice. Please wear loose clothing and flatter-soled shoes with closed heels. Refer to https://tjqmbb.org/ for program details.

Yoga - Amy

A blend of Hatha and Anusara Yoga styles and spirituality, allowing each student to practice in the way that their body needs that day or skipping the pose if it’s painful. I focus on strength, flexibility and balance, which are all necessary for aging bodies. I sequence the class so that students are feeling capable of holding a standing balance, for example, by warming up specific muscles related to that pose. I use a theme in order to inspire my students, and try to call them by their names to promote community.

Yoga - Hallie

This all levels class moves slowly through basic asanas to energize and release muscle tissue. Especially designed for low back pain relief. Hallie shares with students a life of movement, knowledge from Anusara yoga, dance and bodywork.
