Fall Classes Begin

Monday, September 8th, 2008

The fall season of classes at Tamarack Wellness Center has started. We have 2 classes in the yoga schedule that use Chair Master exercises as the starting point for yoga seated in the chair or using a chair as a prop. Both are called Senior Stretch, one is advanced.

An Investment

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008

Yesterday, I was talking with Bernice Homan, one of the original peer leaders using Chair Masters pages to lead a class years ago. She is a model in the Chair Masters book and a member of the studio class in the DVD. Obviously, she’s a person committed to exercise for many years. She said, “You know, I’m at the stage in my life now where I really need the DVD to exercise in my apartment.”  I responded, “What a wonderful investment you’ve made in helping to create this material. And now it’s available for you to use.” There are more types of investments than just financial.

Of course, exercise, even simple movements, is a good investment in its own right. And for an active, independent 90-something, how wonderful that the right tools are now available.
