Spring Forward into Fitness
With warmer weather on the way and the promise of more outdoor recreation, now is not only the time to set your clocks ahead. As you re-set your watch, re-set your health by getting and staying in shape with upcoming SAS fitness classes. New sessions of in-person and online courses begin this coming week and next.
Jeannine Palermo's popular Fit Blast: Cardio, Strength, and Abs (Course 11158) on Mondays and Total Body Workout with Bands on Fridays (Course 11163) offer two great options for online workouts. New sessions of Palermo's Body Sculpting (Courses 11161 and 11162 and 11164) and the chair-based version, Sit and Be Fit (Courses 11159 and 11160), begin on Tuesday and Thursday this week with in-person classes set to resume in April.

High energy Zumba (11195) with Laura Centeno helps students burn fat and tone down to a Latin beat. In-person classes meet on Friday mornings starting April 22, 2022.
New in-person and online sessions of Movement to Music on Tuesdays and Thursdays (Courses 11177, 11178, and 11179) with Penny Bowman and on Fridays with Judy Schwartzman (Courses 11183 and 11235) pick up in a week and a half. Suitable for women of all ages and fitness levels, the highlight of this program is the live piano performance at each class.

Fresh sessions of Walk15® with Heather Buyers are also starting again soon. Online class will meet on Mondays starting March 21, 2022 (Course 11191), and the in-person class begins on Tuesday, March 22, 2022 (Course 11244). Low impact moves are set to music for fun and easy to learn calorie-burning exercise.

Just added to the catalog, an eight-session Postural Therapy Movement (Course 11241) begins on Wednesday, March 23, 2022. Having debuted at SAS in the winter term, Joey Zimet instructs students on techniques to improve posture and alleviate day-to-day aches and pains with standing, sitting, and floor exercises.

Basic Yoga and Gentle Yoga with Louise Fecher also have new sessions beginning this week. In-person classes meet on Tuesday mornings (Courses 11174 and 11175) and Gentle Yoga offers an online session on Friday mornings (Course 11176). Fecher will also introduce MELT Method® Hand and Foot Treatment (Course 11230), an in-person Thursday morning class focused on reducing pain and tension in hands and feet brought on by everyday stresses and aging.
