Therapeutic Chair Yoga

10:00 a.m.

Therapeutic chair yoga is a gentle stretching exercise for anyone, especially those with chronic back pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia or other pain and movement issues. Poses are learned either sitting in a chair or standing holding on to a chair.

Exercise can improve your ability to complete normal activities of daily living, lower the risk of anxiety or depression, and improve your quality of life.

Yoga is a free class and open to all men and women. The class meets in the Peitz Cancer Support House Activity Room. As with starting any new exercise program, please consult your physician before beginning.

Cardio Kickboxing & Strength Training

6:00 a.m. – 6:30 a.m.

The Schliemann Center for Women’s Health Education sponsors Cardio Kickboxing & Weight Training for women with Angie Bertel every Monday and Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. at the Baxter Regional Wellness Education Center at 2545 Hwy 5 North.

Women who don’t exercise can lose anywhere from 3 to 8% of their muscle mass each decade due to inactivity. Studies show that strength training can promote bone development, reduce lower back pain, and reverse several skeletal muscle aging factors.

Kickboxing has become a popular sport because it provides a fantastic workout and challenges many of our senses and capacities.

If you want to feel better about your body, both in how it looks and performs, these sessions are for you!

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, class capacity is limited to 15. Masks are required, social distancing is strictly observed, and registration is required. Call (870) 508-2345 today!

Threads of Hope Creating Gifts for Cancer Patients – Peitz Cancer Support House

1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Do you like to knit or crochet? How about sewing or needlework, or quilting?

Would you like to learn how?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should join us at Threads of Hope at 1 pm on Monday afternoons.

This group offers lots of encouragement and support to one another as they spend time at their weekly meetings, and you just might learn a new stitch. Anyone with interest in any type of needlework is welcome to attend.

Threads of Hope provides different things to different people. For cancer survivors, you can learn a craft to help pass the time between or after treatments. For some, it provides a way to support others, even if you’re not a cancer survivor yourself. The group may make lap robes, prayers shawls, or caps that are distributed to those patients in treatment. For others, it provides a place to enjoy fun and companionship.
