Ping Pong


Ping - Pong is a lively game, yet it’s playable at the pace the competitors choose. In other words, because there are so many ways to benefit from the game, it’s not necessary to go full-tilt to enjoy it. The intensity of a good Ping - Pong game can be an excellent cardiovascular workout for seniors.  Stiff muscles and tight ligaments are put to work, and strengthening them will help reduce the risk for falls.

Wednesdays Quadra Community Centre Main Hall, 3:00-4:30 PM ending May 29th

Somatics is a gentle, slow movement modality that relies more on awareness of muscle tension than exercise. It is a means of bringing back  voluntary control of forgotten muscles that results in improved posture, pain relief and increased freedom of movement. It is done mainly lying down so participants need to be able to get up and down from the floor. The ability to lie on one's back and tummy is needed.

As an older adult, regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health. It can prevent or delay many of the health problems that seem to come with age. It also helps your muscles grow stronger so you can keep doing your day-to-day activities without becoming dependent on others. Choose from a variety of drop-in classes or pre-registered events.  All classes are BY DONATION.
