Wellness

Our wellness program helps residents live their best lives today and live well for the future.

Our Wellness Center hosts an array of classes for exercise, balance, movement and relaxation. We also have a Fitness Center with a variety of additional exercise equipment to meet individual needs, including a NuStep, treadmill, recumbent bike and elliptical trainer. Our exercise options accommodate residents who like to keep their own routine and schedule as well as those who enjoy the social aspect and guidance of group classes.

Chair Yoga/Relaxation

Residents enjoy this gentle approach to movement and leave class moving better and feeling relaxed and refreshed. The class focuses on mobility, breath, posture and relaxation. No fee.

Chair Exercise

Performed mostly while seated, residents get exercise by moving, stretching and strengthening at their own pace and effort level. Wheelchairs welcome. Our volunteer Angels (or classes on DVD) lead the morning class, and the wellness coordinator leads the afternoon class. No fee.

Advanced Stretch

Taught by our restorative nursing aides, this class focuses on breathing, stretching, posture and exercises for the arms and legs. It helps promote circulation, muscle strength and overall feeling of well-being. No fee.

Wii Bowling

There’s no heavy lifting here – just all fun. That’s because Wii bowling is done by a sensing computer. It’s a good way to get a little exercise and keep a competitive spirit. Can be done while seated or standing. No experience necessary. No fee.

Fit Circuit

A small class of 8, Fit Circuit incorporates movement from station to station, strength, balance, flexibility and coordination exercises. Requires monthly registration and payment.

Balance Class

This class, limited to 4, focuses specifically on balance and gait, and not as much on the strength component that is also part of Fit Circuit. The rotation of exercises provides opportunities to sit and rest. Walkers and canes welcome but an ability to stand and walk for short periods without pain or fatigue is recommended. Requires registration and payment.

Tai Chi

This ancient Chinese discipline involves a continuous series of controlled, slow movements to improve physical and mental well-being. A chair is near each participant as an assist or resting place as needed. Benefits include improved strength and balance, reduced stiffness and improved sleep quality. Requires pre-registration and payment for 7-week session.

Personal Training, Private or Small Group

Residents receive one-on-one attention in an exercise program that suits individual needs and goals. Personal training may be used as a transition from physical therapy, as a regular weekly session for wellness or an occasional boost to adjust and modify a self-led program. Requires scheduling and payment.

Our citywide birthday party is FREE to attend!

The Playing Field


The Playing Field is a nonprofit, early education program aimed at minimizing the disparity of child care services offered to children in our community. The Playing Field believes all children deserve access to a high quality early educational experience and that all children should have access to the same programs. In our unique model, children from very different socio-economic backgrounds are cared for and educated together, rather than in groups separated by what families can afford.

Since we opened in September of 2015, The Playing Field has intentionally addressed the barriers that children from low income families often face in accessing high quality care. Some of those barriers are obvious such as cost and transportation. However, some barriers which often deny children access to high quality care are not as apparent. Our program has modified our policies and facilities to assure that all children and their families feel welcomed. The staff are also extensively trained in Trauma Informed Care and given the support required to care for our community's most vulnerable children.

Our entire school family is grateful to have been selected to receive the support of Attic Angel during their anniversary celebration! This space will allow us to improve our ability to serve children impacted by trauma and expand our capacity for nature based programming.
