Spectrum Generations’ Muskie Community Center at 38 Gold Street, Waterville offers two options for those people looking to get active and stay active.
Tai Chi and Matter of Balance will both be offered in sessions starting this spring. Both provide the opportunity to perform exercises that improve strength, balance, and fitness – essential activities that adults can do to reduce their chance of falling. The entire curriculum of these activities can help improve strength and balance. Registration is open for both now, contact Lyn Neiz at 930-8082 or [email protected]
Tai Chi is a fun, easy way to improve both physical and mental health. It offers low-impact exercise, and can also be done sitting down, at your own pace. The class does not require any prior knowledge of Tai Chi as the movements are slow and easy to learn, making it suitable for most people. The cost is $90 for 8 weeks, and classes will be held every Monday and Wednesday, from 8:00 – 9:00 a.m. starting April 3.
Matter of Balance is a nationally recognized program designed to encourage physical activity and reduce the fear of falling. Workshops are conducted over eight sessions, over for weeks, meeting twice a week for two hours each, and led by experienced trained volunteer leaders. These workshop series is offered at a suggested donation of $20, and will meet every Tuesday and Thursday, 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. starting May 30.
Registration for both classes scheduled at the Muskie Center is currently open. Please contact Lyn Neiz at 930-8082 or [email protected] for more information.
