By popular request, Muleshoe Public Library is offering Yoga for Seniors, starting April 1.
Previously, the library offered Matter of Balance, and the class has now gone to the next fitness level.
“Yoga is the perfect way to help us remain active as we age,” according to a flyer from the library. “These movements are designed to improve strength and flexibility, improve posture and balance, and help you feel both more relaxed and energetic This yoga is mostly done seated in a chair. Come join us!”
“Older patrons have been asking us for quite some time if we were ever interested in doing a yoga class,” Library Director Dyan Dunagan said. “Seven attended the last Matter of Balance class, and those seven are signed up for Senior Yoga.”
The Yoga for Seniors class will be led by Sandra Graves, a library volunteer, and Dunagan will participate in the class. Matter of Balance and Yoga for Seniors are the first exercise programs ever to be offered at the library.
“Participants will be asked to sign a waiver and talk to a doctor before they participate in the Senior Yoga program,” Dunagan said.
The program is presented through Texas AgriLife Extension. Sessions will be from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Mondays on the following dates:
Muleshoe Area Public Library is located at 322 West 2nd. For more information, call 806-272-4707.
