Decreased bone density is a concern for many aging individuals. This exercise-based class will focus on safe and effective activities to strengthen your bones (no matter what your age). Each class will start with 20 minutes of presentation (including educational materials to take home), and follow with 60 minutes of exercises specific to building your bones. All ability levels can benefit from this class as the exercises will be tailored to each individual as much as possible. Cap: 40
