Senior Programs

Whether you’re a senior citizen trying to get into shape or an older adult that needs a class to stay in good physical condition, the MacColl YMCA has programs to assist you with achieving your goals. 

 

One of those programs is Slow Flow Yoga, which is taught at a slower pace to help students find beneficial alignment and nourish­ment in each pose. The sessions will offer challenges for those seeking to deepen their yoga practice and modifications for people working with injuries and other limitations. Participants need to bring their own Pilates/yoga mat.

 

Hatha flow yoga is a traditional program for the beginner to the expert. It is designed to increase strength, balance, flexibility and confidence while encouraging relaxation.

 

Programs exclusive to YMCA members are: 

FUNCTIONAL STRENGTH

Use your own body weight, weights, and stability balls, to gain strength, stabilize joints, increase flexibility, add balance, and relieve pain to increase mobility for daily life.

PICKLEBALL

Pickleball is a racquet sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. No experience
is necessary - bring your willingness to have fun and we will learn all the rules together.

AOA Stretch

This AOA class is designed to promote flexibility, balance, and muscular endurance. A variety of exercise will be performed working various muscle groups within the body all while listening to relaxing music.

In addition, senior citizens can dive into one of the adult aquatic programs conducted in the MacColl YMCA’s new spacious pool. The low-impact programs include Water Aerobics, Aqua-Fit, Rest and Rejuvenation, Strength & Stretching and Water Walking.
