NEW EXERCISE CLASS!

A Matter Of Balance

Mondays, July 8 - August 26, 2019
1:00 - 3:00 pm

Beginning on Monday, July 8, 2019 the Newport 60+ Activity Center will be offering a free 8-week wellness program designed specifically to help older adults find new levels of confidence as they go about their daily lives. It only makes sense to be concerned about falling, but letting the fear of falling hold you back from active living is even more dangerous. Limiting your activities leads to increased physical weakness, making the risk of falling even greater. The strategies taught in A Matter of Balance will improve your quality of life and help you stay independent! Pre-registration is required, and class size is limited.
