Independence for our senior community is so important and we know that staying active with exercise classes, movement & balance classes and pickleball are key. We have a variety of classes available everyday at the Y.

We also live stream our exercise classes directly to our members’ homes, so they can continue to move, and see familiar, friendly faces across the screen.
