Free Pilates series scheduled on Tuesdays

Yoga-Mat-byJenmaThe Southwest Oklahoma City Public Library pairs reading and fitness with its weekly Pilates classes at 6 p.m. most Tuesdays.

Classes are scheduled for 6 p.m. each Tuesday during January, on Jan. 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31.

Participants in the workout are encouraged to bring their own exercise mat to use during the program as mats will not be provided.

Each class is available for ages 12 and up. Registration is required in advance, and each participant must sign a waiver release beforehand, or for ages 12 to 17 have a form signed by a parent or guardian.

The classes are made possible through the Health Literacy Grant by the Oklahoma Department of Libraries, Oklahoma Literacy Resource Office and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
