Warm up with movement

As we get our first taste of cooler temperatures this fall, it is tempting to start hibernating. Come to the senior center and get moving instead! We have a variety of programs to suit many activity levels:

  • Line Dance Fusion, Mondays, 10:30, with Beatriz Arujo, $3 drop-in fee.

  • BeMoved!, Tuesdays, 9:45, with Phyllis Hirschfield, $5 drop-in fee.

  • Yoga, Tuesdays, 11; Thursdays, 10, with Denise O’Hearn, $3 drop-in fee.

  • Tai Chi, Wednesdays, 10:30, with Joe Alampi, $3 drop-in fee.

  • Feldenkrais, Fridays, 10, with Cathy Paine, $5 drop-in fee.

Blood pressure

Come get your blood pressure taken on the first Thursday of each month at the senior center. No charge, screening provided by Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County.
