North Hempstead has announced that Project Independence, the town’s aging-in-place initiative, will be offering a slate of live, at-home exercise classes for seniors to be held over Zoom. The classes are being offered to senior residents free of charge.
“Throughout the pandemic, our remote exercise classes have been extremely popular among our residents,” said North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth. “These classes provide our seniors with an opportunity to stay fit and active while remaining safe at home. These new live classes will add an interactive component which we hope our residents will enjoy.”
The upcoming live Zoom class schedule includes:
Dance Fitness – Mondays, February 1 to June 14 at 2 p.m. with Margaret Gatzonis (no class 2/15, 3/29 and 5/31)
Fitness – Wednesdays, February 3 to June 16 at 10 a.m. with Mike Mancini (no class 2/17 and 3/31)
Yoga – Thursdays, February 4 to June 17 at 11 a.m. with Suzanne Scalcione (even dates) and Rebecca Miller (odd dates) (no class 2/18 and 4/1)
In addition to the live classes, the Town is also broadcasting remote exercise classes on the Town’s public access television station, North Hempstead TV (NHTV). Residents can watch these programs on channel 18 or 63 on Cablevision and channel 46 on Verizon FIOS. These programs can also be found online on-demand. For a complete schedule visit: mynhtv.com.
