I have really enjoyed the Balance and Stretching classes. Instructor Stacy Shay is experienced and clearly understands aging bodies. After 4 sessions so far, she is appropriately starting to ramp up stamina and range of movement. I'd love to see her class go weekly, at least while the weather is cold and we are still stuck in our homes more than usual. Weekly classes would give us more continuity and opportunity for progress. Thanks for offering this and Yoga. Both are wonderful!

I find the Gentle Balance and Stretch exercise class to be very valuable. I'm getting a good workout and I really like the instructor. Her pace is just right for me; in fact, she has picked up the pace from the first session, which suits me just fine. I have tried many other virtual classes this year since my Silver Sneakers classes shut down at my local gym, and have always been discouraged before. But this class works my body just right and gets my heart rate up, but not too much. I also value the social aspect as I get to know the other participants. It helps relieve my isolation. Please continue to offer this Zoom class. I would like to see it EVERY week!
The Friday stretch class is helpful for cardio, balance, and mobility improvements. Also, I love the weekly yoga class.
I just finished Stacy’s exercise class. She has a nice pace and way about her with clear explanations. Most enjoyable and I especially like meeting Aberdeenites.
I enjoyed the presentation about volcanoes in Antarctica. It was my first class with the Pillar Institute and all went well with the technology. I'll surely attend more Pillar classes.
