A gentler way to move into wellness at Joe’s

Whether you’re a proud card-carrying AARP member, eyeing your “golden years” doubtfully, recovering from an injury, or simply looking for a gentler way to move into a wellness way of life, Joe’s has two gentle classes for you.

Gentle Yoga Wednesday mornings at 11:30 am with Brooke Kidd and Tai Chi Thursday evenings at 7 pm are wonderful ways to work movement into your weekly wellness routine.


Gentle Yoga | Wednesdays at 11:30 am

The National Institute of Health (NIH) tells us, “studies have shown that exercise provides many health benefits and that older adults can gain a lot by staying physically active. Even moderate exercise and physical activity can improve the health of people who are frail or who have diseases that accompany aging.”

Whether you’re already over the hill or contemplating the climb up, working a fitness aspect into your regular weekly schedule can contribute towards maintaining your health and independence as you age.


Tai Chi | Thursdays at 7 pm

NIH also tells, “when older people lose their ability to do things on their own, it doesn’t happen just because they’ve aged. It’s usually because they’re not active. Lack of physical activity also can lead to more visits to the doctor, more hospitalizations, and more use of medicines for a variety of illnesses.”

No matter what generation you’re a part of, regular movement experiences can help mange stress and improve your mood. NIH continues, “regular, moderate physical activity can help manage stress and improve your mood. And, being active on a regular basis may help reduce feelings of depression.” While a movement class at Joe’s is no replacement for doctor-recommended mental health therapies and medication, participation in a weekly class provides important connection. Connection between you and your instructor, your fellow classmates, and your inner sense of self.

In 2014 Kathy Shollenberger, a regular yoga student here at Joe’s, shared her beautiful movement story with us. It’s so good, we had to share it again:

Over the course of the past year, Joe’s has become central to my well-being in such a profoundly satisfying way.  I had dabbled in yoga for years, but it always seemed a chore—something that I should do because it was good for me.  I never really got any better at it.  But now I relish the hour and a half I spend with Brooke on Monday evenings.  I get out of my day and into my body.  My confidence has grown and so has my strength.  Thanks to some individual instruction from Brooke, even my plank improved.  She suggested that taking Pilates would complement yoga and consolidate my gains, so I did—bright and early Wednesday mornings with Andrea, another wonderful teacher.  The result of these two weekly classes with instructors who provide expert guidance is a healthier and happier me.  Thanks, Joe’s.

Kathy still regularly attends Brooke’s yoga class on Monday evenings.

Joe’s offers a $80 senior 10-class pass, a $30 discount from our regularly priced 10-class pass. If you identify as a senior, you are eligible to purchase the pass.
