Fitness Classes with Aimee Borda
1. Zumba® Fitness
We take the “work” out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you’ll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise.
Equipment: towel, water, lots of energy
Mondays & Fridays12:00-12:45 pm

2. Dance & Tone
We start off with some simple, but fun dance choreographies, followed by some toning exercises combined with dance moves (interval training style). We will work on all our muscle groups, using light dumbbells and body weight.  Some stretches to improve our flexibility will be included at the end of the class. Exercises can be performed standing or seated. Modifications will be taught if needed, so all are welcome!

Zentangle®  
Take a break with a relaxing, meditative, easy to learn drawing practice. No prior art experience required. You will need paper, a pencil, and a pen (felt tip, Micron, or something that writes nicely). A blender/tortillon, or rolled paper is helpful for shading.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention “Each year in the US, nearly one third of older adults experience a fall”. Falls can be devastating, costly and most importantly falls are largely PREVENTABLE.
