Several of the public libraries in the East Bronx would like to offer free weekly Stay Well Exercise classes, designed for adults 60 and over.
To this end, they will be holding demonstration workshops with the goal of attracting people willing to be trained on-site as volunteers who will then commit to leading these classes on a regular basis.
Staff from the Health Promotion Services unit of NYC’s Department for the Aging will be leading the workshops, which consist of a well-balanced series of exercises for all ability levels. No special clothing or equipment is necessary. Participants will be required to sign an activity release form.
Those interested in attending the free workshops can register by phone or in person at the library.
