Free balance and yoga classes at The Wellness Studio

Monday, September 21, 2020

Through the generous support by Shoreline Fire Department and the office of King County Council member Rod Dembowski, we are very excited to offer the following FREE fitness classes through our Wellness Studio at the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center. 

To support our adult population in reducing their exposure to hazardous air qualities and Covid-19, these classes will be offered online through Zoom meetings. Whether you currently exercise on a regular basis and/or are new to yoga, you may join these classes. In fact, these classes are a great first step for anyone new to an exercise regime or returning after an absence.

Instructor: Toshiko

Keep Your Balance Keep Moving – Free
Sponsored by Shoreline Fire Department
September 28th – October 23rd

Falls are the leading cause of injury-related death among older adults. The good news is that falling is not an inevitable part of the aging process. Middle-aged and older adults can reduce their risk of falling by knowing their fall risk factors. 

In this class you will learn the risk factors of falling so that you will be able to decrease fear of falling and the risk of falling. 

We focus especially on the topic of the importance of regular exercise, what kind of exercise can improve a person’s balance, and how to start being active if you never have in the past. Anybody will benefit from this class, including family members of seniors. 

Please note class is progressive and cannot be dropped in mid-course. 
Limit 8.
