All of our Wellness Program classes are free for Mennonite Village residents. Some classes are offered quarterly or according to residents' interest.
Skills for Balance: a range of activities that address balance and bolster functional mobility and enhance lower body strength and stability.
Forever Fit Chair Class: strength, stretching, and balance exercises performed in both seated and standing positions. The entire class is chair based.
Circuit Class: an efficient, 30-minute workout that combines weight training, aerobics, balance, and flexibility. This is a non-fee class and requires an orientation to the use of the exercise equipment in the Wellness Center.
Line Dancing: dance exercise in which individuals line up without partners and follow a choreographed pattern of steps.
Gentle Yoga: movements, also called poses, focus on
breath, posture, and body awareness. The poses produce
greater strength, balance, and flexibility. Seated poses can
be performed on the chair or on a mat and standing poses
are preformed with the assistance of a chair.
Tai Chi: an evidence-based, eight-step method of Tai Chi movements that promote balance, relaxation, and breathing, as well as enhance the immune system. This
ancient Chinese exercise combines slow movements with a calm, alert mental state.
Linn Benton Community College (LBCC) Classes: our local community college offers on-site educational and exercise classes. Class fees are paid to LBCC.
