Just because there is still a pandemic affecting our community, that doesn’t mean that you have to stop getting exercise. In fact, keeping your body physically healthy is one way to protect yourself from getting sick. And, it is important to make sure your more mature friends and family members are staying active, too. If you are a senior adult or living with an older person, here are some online yoga classes for senior adults that you can do to make sure we all stay active inside!
