The Jewish Federation Connecting with Community presents the Silver Wellness Series and Nutrition for Seniors.  Join Thea Basis as she leads us in the next installment in this series.  This is a drop-in session and no prior registration is necessary.

Thea will lead discussion about the importance of keeping a healthy muscle mass for metabolic health and to extend the ability to live independently.  She will guide us through specific exercises for each major muscle group that focuses on improving cardio respiratory health, improving balance, and including movements that encompass virtually all activities of daily living.  Various Silver Wellness Series programs are planned for every month.

Thea Basis earned an ACE Group Fitness Instructor Certification and is a Certified Senior Fitness specialist as well as an Orthopedic Exercise Specialist serving groups and individuals in promoting healthy, independent lifestyles, while addressing the unique challenges of aging.

This free program is part of the Federation’s Connecting With Community Series and will be followed by a kosher hot lunch. Lunch is a $2 suggested donation for adults over 60 years of age or $7 for all others. Advance reservations are required for lunch and can be made by calling (413) 442-2200 before 9 a.m. on the day of the program.
