Fitness Class 'Proper Movement as the key to better fitness!- Part 1' with Dr SAM
Many people spend lots of time exercising, but they often neglect how they're really moving.
Learning to move correctly is paramount for not only feeling well, but in preventing injuries as
well. Your survival may even depend on your ability to 'move well' when needed. In this
exercise class, Dr. SAM is going to address moving mindfully, including correct body
mechanics for specific basic movement patterns that one should learn to master— such as
squatting, bending, lunging, pushing, pulling, reaching, and balancing on one leg.
Unfortunately, many people neglect these essential movements because they cause pain.
Dr. SAM will break down some important functional movement patterns in fun and simple
ways to help you learn how to master these movements so that you can excel in sports; in
leisure time activities; and in life! Dr. SAM's exercise classes were a highly attended event in
years past and will most likely be so again this year. Whether or not you're a seasoned athlete or just slightly fit, this class will have something valuable to offer you. This class is for all
fitness levels, so come join the group!
Expected duration: 60 minutes.

Yoga Class: Ground Yourself with Kelly Stern
Be expressive, be abundant, be grounded in the truth of who you are. Just like the roots of a plant, we must find a way to let our roots expand beyond the false limitations that we create for ourselves. Together we will move through awareness and intention to create a clear foundation for our experience. Through conscious breathing and movement, we will root deep into a grounding practice.  
Focus: Balance, Foundation, and Meditation
