Emerson Hospital Offers Full-Body Exercise Classes this Fall


The Emerson Wellness Center for Mind and Body is offering an array of exercises class starting September 19.  The classes are taught with the Essentrics exercise approach, based on the teachings of Miranda Esmond-White.  Classes are done in bare feet or sticky socks to properly work feet, ankles and other body parts. 

Aging Backwards and Classical Stretch is an age-defying workout class that provides relief for stiff joints, frozen shoulders and chronic aches and pains.  Participants will increase flexibility, improve mobility and build strong bones.  This class meets on Mondays from 11:45 a.m. – 12:45 p.m and Thursdays from 1:30 – 2:30 p.m.

Full Body Toning and Active Stretch is a full-body exercise program that dynamically lengthens and strengthens muscles for a lean, toned and flexible body, resulting in greater joint mobility and flexibility.  This class meets on Mondays from 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. and Tuesdays from 5:30-6:30 p.m.

Taught by Sharon Pugatch, Essentrics Apprentice Instructor, the classes are appropriate for anyone who is looking to strengthen muscles and build strong bones.  Participants will meet at the Emerson Wellness Center for Mind and Body, located at 310 Baker Avenue in Concord, near the new Residence Inn hotel. Free parking is available in the office park. The cost is $90 per person for a six-week session. Drop-in  rates and flexible scheduling are available.
