Wellness Center for Exercise

Whole person care

Exercise is key to illness prevention.  The Wellness Center is a place for exercise, strengthening,  education, meditation, and empowerment.  Exercise classes are taught by a physical therapist to keep you safe and provide the proper intensity.  At this time, we are not holding in-person exercise classes at the Wellness Center.  

Ready, Set, Fit!

Ready, Set, Fit! is an 8-week exercise class taught by a physical therapist. Be confident about body alignment, position and intensity of your exercise routine, then transfer the skills to achieve your personal fitness goals.


This upbeat class features a blend of many types of exercise: cardio, yoga, dance, Pilates, Tai Chi, and agility training. The instructor guides you every step of the way and inspires you to keep up the hard (but fun!) work.

Tai Ji Quan, moving for better balance

Tai Ji Quan Moving for Better Balance is an evidence-based fall prevention program designed for older adults at risk of falling and people with balance disorders.


Although its origin can be traced to the contemporary simplified Tai Ji Quan routine, TJQMBB addresses common, but potentially debilitating, functional impairments. This unique training approach is the culmination of a systematic series of studies to improve efficacy, utility, and clinical relevance.

Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness Meditation teaches you a set of skills to increase your ability to have ease, focus and wellbeing in life and at work. The practices are designed to cultivate attention without judgment and with compassion. With practice, people experience less anxiety, improved mood and sleep, as well as improved blood pressure, glucose and pain control.

Dance for Parkinson’s

Dance for Parkinson’s Disease® offers dance classes for people with Parkinson’s disease. During class, participants are empowered to explore movement and music in ways that are refreshing, enjoyable, stimulating and creative.


First class is free then a $5/class punch card is required. Care partner is free but it is not required that participants have a care partner (based on needs). Instructor Rae Stier is an occupational therapist  who has trained with the Mark Morris Dance Group. See danceforpd.org for more.

Childbirth Classes

Exercise to Beat Back Pain
