The Movin’ and Groovin’ class for senior citizens is held weekly at 10:30 on Tuesday mornings in the Village Room. The 2018 series will begin January 9.

Each Tuesday morning at 10:30 seniors can join a free and fun exercise program called Movin’ n Groovin’ in the Village Room on the lower level at 912 City Road, below the Manchester Library.

This is the second year that teacher, Sarah Eckart, has been leading the class. Everyone remains seated as Sarah gets all parts of the body moving – the feet, the knees, shoulders, arms, neck, wrists. The class is specifically designed for seniors and aims to improve flexibility, strengthen your arms, and relieve stress in your shoulders and neck. You can choose your favorite music to work to, and will feel a lot better after the class.

You don’t need to register, but you should be at the village hall a few minutes before the class starts so a full 45 minutes of class is possible.

These classes are free thanks to a grant from the Manchester Wellness Coalition of the 5 Healthy Towns Foundation, as they know and advocate the importance of exercise for everyone–no matter the age.

The first class of the new year is Tuesday, January 9, at 10:30 am.
