People Plus Contines Outside Exercise Classes and Expands Offerings

People Plus is now offering outdoor exercise classes. “We are focused on what can we offer our members, with health and safety concerns upper most in our minds,” said Programming Coordinator Jill Ellis. Activities resumed at the Center in June with exercise classes outside under the trees in the parking lot, live Zoom classes online and Friday haircuts for seniors. Attendance has grown weekly.

 

“We have been so happy to welcome our members back at the Center,” said Executive Director Stacy Frizzle-Edgerton. “Although programming during the pandemic had still been offered via videos and will still be limited at the Center, it’s just nice to get things going again.” 

 

Outside exercise classes include Loosen Up, Tai Chi, Qigong, and Chair Yoga and the weekly Outing Club where they hike or bike. All classes occur outdoors and are limited in size. There will be no access to the People Plus building. Classes are for members only and pre-registration is required. Face masks are mandatory and payment will be through a punch card system. Zumba classes are also offered via Zoom.

 

In addition, the Center is once again offering haircuts for seniors on Fridays with Margarita Day. The cuts are a $10 donation to the Center, are for members only and by appointment only. Members are so happy to finally have their hair cut again and feel like a new person when they leave!

The activities, begun in June, have been so successful that they will be expanded in July to include yoga outside, a new Gentle Barre class, a new Meditation class and a new Walking Club. 

 

People Plus is committed to the health and safety of members and staff and will be following recommended guidelines as established by the Maine CDC, the office of Gov. Janet Mills, and the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development.
