|New Poolates Water Pilates Exercise Class Offered for 50 Plus in Late February|
Combining the elements of mat and apparatus-based Pilates programs with the resistance provided by water is the goal of a new Poolates class being offered in late February by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.
Poolates participants will learn and apply the basic principles of the Pilates method including: centering, control, precision, fluidity, breathing, and concentration. This effective and challenging program is meant to soothe the mind and spirit. Search for the keywords "water pilates" to find this program in the JCPRD's Activities Catalog and online listings.
This program is offered by Instructor Christine Ghrist and will take place at 11:30 a.m. beginning Feb. 28 at the Rose Estates, 12701 Antioch, Overland Park. The cost for seven 50-minute sessions is $42 per person for Johnson County residents or $46 for nonresidents.
While the JCPRD's 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the District's Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.
The JCPRD's ACTIVITIES catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pick-up at all Johnson County Library branches. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359 VOICE or (913) 831-3342 TDD. To register online and for updated program listings, visit the District's website at www.jcprd.com
