Strength and Stretch 

In this 60 minute class, we use small weights, bands and balls to strengthen your muscles.  We then spend time to ensure that each muscle group is stretched out.  These exercises increase your strength, balance, and flexibility; which, increases your ability to walk and move with greater ease and certainty. This class can be done sitting or standing. Instructor Helen Dougherty
