It also may help increase circulation, muscle control and improve balance and coordination. This 30-minute class, taught by Cecilia Floyd-Carruthers, covers stretching exercises from head to toe in a seated position as well as standing, using a chair for balance. Please bring water for hydration and wear gym shoes with good support. Intermediate students need to bring their own mat.
