Rebecca Hannifan is a certified instructor and teaches a few SilverSneakers classes for seniors at St. Luke UMC. She teaches low impact classes that seniors can participate in, but also keep their bodies and minds in shape.

 

“One of the best things people can get out of this class is the social aspect,” says Hannifan.

It is important for seniors to stay active. Physical activity can increase longevity, extend independence, and dramatically reduce the risks of injury. Hannifan teaches Chair Yoga on Mondays and Wednesdays at 11:15 am and teaches Cardio and Strength Tuesdays at 11:15 am.
