Watch Our Core Strength and Balance Session – Virtual classes continue through June

Dr. Paul Spector’s Core Strength and Balance is one of Hudson Area Library’s signature, and most popular, programs and is done in collaboration with the City of Hudson Senior Center. We are so happy to continue this class virtually and love seeing so many of our patrons during the class Saturdays, 1:30-2:30pm. These classes focus on creating strong bodies so we can withstand falls and weaknesses that can affect older adults. In response to the Covid-19 emergency, Paul includes breathing techniques for strong respiratory function and reduction of stress.

Be safe. Be smart. Stay healthy. We hope to see you at Core Strength! Join us by emailing programs@hudsonarealibrary.org for the Zoom meeting information. And, also, feel free to join the Roeliff Jansen Community Library’s Core Strength and Balance classes with Paul Thursdays, 9-10am.
