Active Older Adults
Socializing and volunteering have positive effects on the health of older adults, and exercise has proven to promote mental agility in addition to longevity and good health. Active Older Adults is a phrase we use to identify programs with an activity level appropriate for individuals with special physical considerations. Everyone is welcome to take part in these classes.
We offer fitness programs for older adults such as group exercise, yoga, dance classes, and social events and activities. But we know that older adults are seeking more than physical benefits when they exercise. They also want a sense of community and to strengthen social ties. The Y has several activities to encourage older adults to take action and get involved. Make new friends at the Y as volunteer or attend one of our social events. Check out our schedules at the Port Angeles Y and the Sequim Y for class times.
