This activity is ideal for ages 50+ as senior citizens looking for a great space with great people to move, flex, and stretch their muscles together. Patrons for this event have told us how beneficial these exercises work as supplemental therapy. In fact, the patrons love it so much, that they have demanded an increase in days from Friday to Tuesday and Wednesday as well. And if that wasn’t enough, while you’re there, you may even have a craft or two to work on because we value mental health as well as physical. Why wait? Sign up by calling 364.7808 or by going online to iberialibrary.org and clicking on our events calendar!
