Six-week Therapy Band exercise series starts in January

Old bycoombesyThe Newcastle Public Library will present a Therapy Band Classes for Seniors series, beginning at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 3, and continuing on Tuesdays and Thursdays at that time for six weeks, through Thursday, Feb. 9.

Participants will learn and do no-impact chair exercises using resistance bands to increase strength and muscle tone.

The 12-class series is geared to seniors, though anyone age 18 and up may attend.

Classes are limited to 18 participants, and attendees are encouraged to come to all the classes to get the most they can out of it. Registration is required.
