On Thursdays we start off with a 30 minute walk. Walkers are encouraged to go at their own pace and all exercises can be modified to accommodate any fitness level.  Both classes will end with some gentle stretching and yoga.  Don't forget to bring a water bottle and you may bring your own hand weights and yoga mat if you prefer.  This class meets at the Walt Self building. If the weather's nice we'll grab some hand weights and head outside to exercise in the fresh air (Tuesdays) or head out for our walk (Thursdays) before heading back to WS for yoga. If the weather is very cold/wet/snowy we'll have class indoors. This class is taught by Lisa Ramsey.
