Making Friends with Movement

Thursdays, May 2 – Jun 27, 9-9:45am
Register online or call 319-356-5220
Facilitator: Emily Edrington

Has regular exercise never really come naturally for you? Or maybe you’ve fallen out of the habit after an injury or illness got in the way? Join us at the Ranshaw House on Thursday mornings for some gentle movement in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. This class will serve up a sampler platter of movement activities–including chair yoga, stretch bands, Tai Chi & Qigong, walking, and more–for you to try out, modify, and see what you like. The goal is to experiment and find ways to have a good time moving your body, with support from others in a similar boat, in order to make friends with movement and maybe even make friends through movement.

Coffee Talk & Rec(ommendation) Room

Thursdays, May 2 – Jun 27, 10-11am
Host: Emily Edrington

Join folks from the Iowa City Senior Center for coffee, company, and conversation on Thursday mornings. Bring your hot tips and cool recommendations to our Rec(ommendation) Room. Tell us about great books, movies, podcasts, restaurants, museums, walking trails, travel destinations…anything you are currently loving and want to share with others! The Ranshaw House has a big screen TV and internet connection, so we can always pull up websites and videos (a movie trailer on YouTube, for example) to illustrate your suggestions. Among the recommendations we’d love to hear, tell us what kind of classes and activities you want to see organized for older adults in North Liberty. If we reach a lull in conversation, we can always pull out the old Scrabble game or checkerboard.

About the Partnership

The Senior Center’s free Ranshaw House programs and other low-cost offerings, as well as discounted Senior Center memberships for North Liberty residents, are made possible by a grant from the City of North Liberty. Additional programs may be added. To learn more, call 319-356-5220.
