This program helps improve balance and strength to help older adults live more actively and functionally. It’s perfect for groups living with arthritis or at risk for falling. The participants stay together for the entire 16 weeks, so while it is group exercise class that meets three times a week for one hour, it becomes a community. Registration required.
