I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. It has been a while since I sent an update. I’ve checked in with the Senior Center staff and they are evaluating their on-site programs for April since vaccinations are underway. For those eligible for the vaccine, I hope you have gotten one or would consider getting one. If you have not gotten your vaccination and you are in the phase 1 eligible group, please reach out to local pharmacies or your healthcare provider to get vaccinated. Vaccination not only protects you and your loved ones, it will also allow us to go back to class and enjoy our weekly exercises. Unfortunately, I am not in the right age group to get the vaccination so once I get it, we can start meeting again.
While we wait for the news from the Senior Center, I want to remind everyone that there is a video that you can follow along for silk reeling. It will be as if I am in front of the class. I will include a link below. Keep moving daily. You can do the warm-ups exercises for 15 mins or double the counts and stretch it out to 30 mins. My daily stretches are now reaching 45 mins to an hour and I feel great throughout the day. I hope you can do that too.
With weather warming up and snow melting, we will start evaluating parks’ conditions for outdoor classes. Outdoor classes may resume sooner than indoor classes. Masks are still required for classes if anyone in the group, including myself, is not vaccinated.
Here’s the link to the video you can use to keep moving daily.
