The community is invited to join in a low-intensity stretching program that’s instructed by a licensed physical therapist. The Fit and Flexible program may benefit people with mild back pain, arthritis or fibromyalgia.
The six-week program meets weekly on Mondays at 6:15 p.m., and begins on January 7, 2019. Cost of the program is $15, and classes will be held at OSF Saint Clare’s Medical Office Building in the Occupational Therapy Balance Center at 815 East 5th Street.
The class emphasizes low intensity, gentle stretching and relaxation exercises for anyone interested in increasing their flexibility, but is uncomfortable in a traditional group exercise setting. Better flexibility not only can raise your coordination, but it has the added benefit of decreasing your risk of injury.
Participants should bring their own mat, and must be able to move to the floor and back up without assistance.
Registration is limited. Online registration and class payment can be made by visiting this link.
