New Brain/Body Fitness Class

As part of the programs being offered through a grant from the Craig H. Nielsen Foundation, BORP is offering a new Brain/Body Fitness Class. This is a seated, non-impact class about brain/body circulation and physical habits around alignment and balance. Class promotes circulation through hand/eye coordination, proper posturing, nerve stimulation, deep breathing, stretching, isolations, strength conditioning, and QiGong. Beyond the physical benefits, this class improves mood through engagement and uplifting music.
