Bridge for Experienced Players
New tables of bridge are forming now. Weekly games on Fridays at noon. We have new friendly folks looking to make more tables.
Join Kellie Burnett for weekly classes. This class is for people at all levels of yoga.
Some benefits of yoga are:
-Improved strength and flexibility
-Improved proprioception, which is a skill of knowing where your body is in space, and coordinating your movements accurately. This is particularly important in preventing falls, since we are approaching winter time. For people with any disabilities or conditions, it may mean having greater control of your body and its movements.
-Reduction of stress and improvement of mental clarity.
-Opportunities to meet and socialize.
-Improved stress and pain management.
Fridays 2:00 - 3:00 pm
$40 for 8-week session; $10 per drop in.
Chair Yoga at Ambler
Chair Yoga with Matthew Mitlas
Join area yoga instructor Matthew Mitlas for his signature Chair yoga classes- now offered in 8 week sessions in our Ambler location! Chair yoga is the perfect option for those who have stiff joints and/or trouble getting up and down from the floor. In these classes, we will focus on warming up and moving the major joints in the body (there are 360 of them!) in a variety of poses in the chair along with gentle standing postures next to the chair to support balance. Matthew's classes are warm and welcoming- there is a place for you here!
Fee: $40 for the entire eight-week session. $10 for a drop-in class.
