Beginning last week, BORP’s Online Fitness Studio expanded its offerings with a new Adaptive Seated Yoga class with longtime BORP instructor, Nancy Yates. Every Wednesday at 2pm PDT, Nancy takes participants through a series of exercises designed to reduce joint discomfort, stiffness, stress and fatigue, and increase resilience, flexibility and strength. Sign up here.
Starting Tuesday September 1, Ralf Somack will teach a 12-week Sitting Tai chi class. It will take place at 11am PDT and is open to all levels and abilities. Participants will practice various routines and learn the first 12 forms of the gentle Sun style Tai chi set. This class will improve strength, flexibility, coordination, balance, reduces stress, and help develop inner equanimity. For information, contact email@example.com.
And don’t forget, the BORP Online Fitness Studio also offers classes in cardio dance, strength and conditioning, and mindful movement!! Check them out HERE.
The BORP Adaptive Cycling Center reopened in early June and we now have expanded hours–we’re open five days a week, 9am to 5pm, Tuesday thru Saturday (appointments required). This allows us to provide the BORP community plenty of opportunities to exercise outdoors and maintain safe social distance. We’re serving about 50 people per week (with no more than 4 users at the center at a time).
Jorge Macias, a regular at the center, says: “The BORP employees are very serious about the COVID guidelines and enforce the mask regulations. They provide hand sanitizer, and they also clean the bikes after each use. I feel really safe there.”
The center offers a chance to not only exercise, but to socialize, too (with masks and appropriate social distance). Another regular, Dan Pollart says, “It’s great being able to catch up with friends and meet new people. I’m always interested in learning about their BORP stories, and how they’ve adapted in quarantine.”
We really appreciate how everyone’s following the safety and social distancing guidelines. This commitment keeps all of us safe. We’re also thrilled to be helping so many people enjoy the health benefits of exercising outdoors.
A friendly reminder when visiting the cycling center is to: 1) only enter the building if you are using the bathroom, 2) bring your own helmet, and 3) allow riders at least six feet of social distance when they are entering or exiting the courtyard.

In the wake of COVID-19, we’ve had to redesign BORP’s biggest fundraiser of the year. But that doesn’t mean it won’t still be a lot of fun!
Want to exercise outdoors? Or want to exercise at home? Either way, you can join the Revolution 2020. Create or join a team. Or participate individually. Set an activity goal and ask your friends and family to support you.
