Posturcize™ (in case you haven't taken this class) is a series of simple, fun exercises for rejuvenating the joints and restoring and reinforcing their normal range of motion. How to look great, and feel good!
Classes are every day except Sundays and Wednesdays at 3-4 PM

PAYMENT NOT REQUIRED, BUT APPRECIATED. I would so much rather you come than not!
Wear comfortable clothes, have ready a sturdy chair braced against the wall for lunge exercises, and a padded area for about 10 minutes of floor exercise.
Will we have a fall term?
It depends on three factors.
1. Will our churches feel comfortable in allowing us to use their facilities?
2. Will we have enough teachers to feel comfortable in returning?
3. Will our students/seniors feel safe in returning?
Answers to these questions should be resolved sometime in August - stay tuned.

DID YOU KNOW?
In all the top surveys we know of, the preferred terms to describe those over 50 include: older persons, older people, older adults, aging adults, elders, persons 65 years and older, or the older population. Third age or third act and perennials, as a play on “millennials,” are sometimes used by people in the field but these newer terms haven't readily caught on yet.
The word "senior," most especially when used with "citizen" is disliked by a majority of survey respondents. Other less desirable phrases include "positive aging" and successful aging."
The problem is there is a great deal of difference between a 50-year-old and a veteran adult in his or her 80s or 90s. One name may not fit such a large group. And the Shepherd's Centers network covers this full age range with a variety of opportunities.
ENJOY THE FALL 2020 TERM WITH US!
