Yoga, Tai Chi and Exercise
Central is proud to offer two yoga classes, 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! *Note until November 12, this class is held on Tuesday nights!
Beginner Yoga is offered at 10:00am on Wednesday mornings through out the summer. This class begins standing up and moves to the mat once, where the class finishes. Modifications are offered for most poses.
Each Tuesday Madeline Fillman teaches Tai Chi for Arthritis. The class is great for balance and only requires stable shoes. Tuesday morning's class begins at 11:15am and Tuesday evenings at 6:15pm. Both classes run for 45 minutes.
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.

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 REALM. 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. Registration is on Realm now, deadline is October 31, 2018.
