Commit to be fit this fall

The Southern Maine Agency on Aging is keeping the heat up as the weather gets cooler with its virtual exercise and yoga classes. These classes are drop-in, making them flexible to your schedule and desired regimen.

Gentle Exercise classes meet once a week on Thursdays from 10 to 11 a.m. starting Sept. 28. This class includes a full body routine of movements to gently warm-up your joints, stretch and strengthen your muscles, and practice your balance.

Yoga for Healthy Aging classes meet once a week on Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to noon starting Oct. 4. This class includes a modified series of traditional poses, which can be done by almost anyone—of any age or ability. Special emphasis is placed on strength, balance, fall prevention, and “bone-safe” practice.

Both classes have a combination of seated and standing poses, but all of the poses may be done seated. Pre-registration for all classes is required. Register once but come as often as able.

Please visit our events page at or call 207-396-6578 to pre-register and check out our other Agewell class offerings. For more information, contact our Agewell team with any questions by calling 207-396-6578 or by e-mailing

The Southern Maine Agency on Aging is the focal point in Cumberland and York counties for resources, services, and information to empower older adults and adults with disabilities. <
