I hope you and your family are safe and well. We understand these are unique times and you are facing difficult decisions every day about your daily and weekly routines.
Active Southern West Virginia has decided to limit personal contact through the month of June to focus on continuing to bring you online resources. Bare with us, we are in the background preparing in-person programs to deliver the social supports greatly needed to recover from the medical, economic, and emotional toll this has taken on our communities.
Use the month of June to invite your immediate friends and family to be active with you. Extend the invitation to meet online, over the phone, and distanced in your neighborhoods. Having companionship in healthy behaviors will make you more successful in reaching your goals.
Wait, you need a goal? Explore below all the ways you can safely be active with your friends and family right now!
Stay safe and active,
Melanie Seiler
Executive Director
Active SWV

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 5:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until January 31, 2020

Join Community Captain Lori Keller for free Gentle Yoga every Tuesday at 5:30 pm. Come out and let Lori guide you through a series of stretches that are designed to gently increase flexibility and strength. All moves will be done from a chair or standing position.

Gentle Yoga-Key Points

  • Anyone can do it- Exercises can be adapted to accommodate anyone’s physical limitations.
  • No pain, No Strain- If you feel pain, back off the stretch until you feel comfortable.
  • Each stretch should feel good- Enjoy yourself, listen to your body and be gentle.
  • Deepen your breathing- Imagine your breath massaging tight areas.
  • Explore the stretches- move gently until you find the spot that benefits from the stretch.

The group will meet in the conference room of the Robinson Annex at the New River Health Whipple site.

The class will not be held the third Tuesday of every month.
