Exercise at Central
Yoga, Tai Chi and Exercise
Central is proud to offer a yoga class, an exercise class and two Tai Chi classes during the week. All are free of charge and meet in at the church.
For over ten years Central has offered a yoga class to the community for free! Monday nights are taught by Meg Irvin at 6:45 pm in the church basement. The class is a basic flow class with adjustments made based on the level of the participants. Everyone is welcome!
Each Monday evening and Tuesday morning Madeline Fillman teaches Tai Chi for Arthritis. The class is great for balance and only requires stable shoes. Monday's class begins at 6:15pm and Tuesday mornings at 11:15am. Both classes run for 45 minutes. Tai Chi takes the first Tuesday of the month off for UMW Circle meetings. And class will not meet in November and December.
On Thursday mornings a low impact exercise class at 10:00 am. The class is a combination of stretching, low impact aerobics, light weight lifting and balancing. Weights, abdominal work and some stretching can be done in a chair. The last 20 minutes are basic yoga stretches. Thursday morning class is taught by Meg Irvin.
Meg Irvin is a YogaFit certified in instructor. YogaFit is a yoga training program that blends of the ancient practice of yoga with a fitness format. It is user friendly for people of all shapes, sizes, ages and fitness levels. Meg is open to helping anyone in this community in their practice. If you have special needs for any class offered just show up a little early so that your needs can be accomodated.
Run for Reta
Run for Reta is an annual event in memory of Reta Steck, Associate Pastor of CUMC for many years. Each November Central members lace up their running shoes, put on their red (Reta's favorite color) shirts and run the Santa Scramble 5k that leads the Concord Christmas Parade. It also hits the two mile marker right in front of Central. All proceeds go to Ruth Dollars, Reta's favorite ministry.
You may pay for registration by cash, check or use Connect Point. But you must fill out both forms in order to run. Gary Shue will shuttle us to the start in the church bus. It is a mile from the finish back to the church. Runners and walkers are welcome. Look for registration forms in October 2017.
The race will be on November 18th 2017! The race begins as soon as the parade is lined up. (Around 2:00pm).
