"Moving Toward Mobility"

I am excited about moving my monthly Multiple Sclerosis Yoga class to the Tiffin, Oh YMCA. Moving Toward Mobility is the name of the new class which will incorporate mostly disabling illnesses and have five teachers who will teach and assist using their personal family experiences and education to assist all students in a direction of a better quality of life. This class is not just Yoga,  but we will use small weights and any other healthy exercises that work for the students, modifying for each individual student.

Below is the description and information on how to register for the class.

Happy & Healthy,
Yoga Chuck

Moving toward Mobility

We are pleased to introduce “Moving toward Mobility” … a free class offered for those who experience limitations in their physical condition. These limitations may stem from chronic conditions, illness, stroke, Parkinson, Multiple Sclerosis, injury, arthritis, etc. We expect the benefits of this class to be:

  • Lubrication of joints
  • Muscle and connective tissue stretching
  • Increased strength and flexibility
  • Increased physical stamina
  • Heightened awareness of your own body
  • Improved posture
  • Increased breathing capacity
  • Stress reduction
  • Lighten mood and spirit

We expect our class members to feel an improvement in overall quality of life and leave the class feeling stronger, refreshed and relaxed!

Who can join this class? Anyone who is physically challenged due to health conditions or injury. Class is free to everyone – YMCA member and community member.

Who will be the instructors? Chuck Burmeister – Registerd Yoga Teacher, Certified Reiki Master, Aromatherapy Training; Katie Darkow – certified Pilates instructor and avid runner; Kim Kancler – fitness instructor with experience in Yoga and Pilates; Beth Tippie – fitness instructor with experience in rhythmic movement and Yoga; Francine Neal – Healthy Lifestyles Director at Y – personal trainer and fitness instructor with experience working with older clients and many different fitness levels.

Each instructor comes to the class with a heart to help and give of themselves for the benefit of the class members.

What if a wheelchair or walker is needed? Wheelchairs, walkers or other mobility devices are not a problem. If they are a part of your life…they are a part of this class. Please do not let that inhibit your decision to be a part of this opportunity. The YMCA is totally handicap accessible with handicap parking available at both entrances.

When is the class? The second Saturday of each month at 9am. The first class will be Jan. 12. 2013.

Where is the class? The Tiffin Community YMCA Conference room.

How do I join? Register through the Member Service Desk at the Tiffin Community YMCA at 419-447- 8711. After you register, Chuck Burmeister or Francine Neal will contact you to learn more about how we can help you. This will help us help you!

Can caregivers come too? ABSOLUTELY!
