Wood County, Ohio –The Wood County Senior Center will be hosting an internationally known therapeutic fitness class designed to benefit cancer survivors, and those with MS, Parkinson’s, depression or other chronic illnesses.
The class will be held on Wednesdays from March 6 until April 24 at 305 North Main Street, Bowling Green. These classes are eight weeks in duration and begin at 10:30 a.m. Each class is taught by Jim Berger from Heartland Rehabilitation Services who is a certified instructor in the Lebed Method. The Lebed method or “Healthy Steps” is for anyone who wants to take steps to care for their mind, body and spirit while having fun.
It utilizes slow, smooth movement with resistance that can be done either sitting or standing. “The program uses dance moves and music and aids to increase flexibility, strength, range of motion, and regain balance both physically and emotionally. It also helps to decrease and manage lymphedema and so much more,” says Berger.
Individuals are welcome to participate in Berger’s class. The class fee is $20 for eight weeks and participants are asked to register in advance. It is suggested to wear something comfortable, wear supportive shoes and have a desire to have fun while exercising.
