The Westfield Area YMCA is pleased to offer a free Ageless Grace® class on Monday, January 23rd from 1:30pm-2:30pm at the Main Y facility, 220 Clark Street in Westfield.
The Ageless Grace® program has 21 simple exercises designed to be performed in a chair in order to develop core muscle strength and flexibility to stimulate the organs and systems of the body and to force the brain to figure out how to execute movements that are traditionally done standing up. Participants will move to the music with confidence, playfulness and ease. This class also encourages social interaction and an improved attitude and outlook.
The class is open to the community and led by Westfield Area YMCA Fitness Instructor Roberta Catuogno, who is one of 14 Certified Ageless Grace® Educators in New Jersey.
Advance registration is required by Friday, January 20th. Members can register online at www.westfieldynj.org and non-members can register in person at the Main Y facility, 220 Clark Street.
