All of the classes are conducted by certified instructors and, so far, more than 70 types of classes are included in SilverSneakers FLEX. They range from tai chi to boot camp and Latin dance to yoga. Class locations and types are always expanding and we love getting your ideas for new ones. The possibilities are nearly endless. Getting fit and having fun in your neighborhood: What's not to like?

Dancing Gaia: The NATURE of Movement & Meditation

Jennifer is an ACE Certified Group Fitness Instructor and Silver Sneakers Flex instructor and has been instructing group fitness classes for over four years.

Each class begins with deep breathing, energy building, and gentle stretching warm-ups. Class continues with a unique blend of Tai Chi, Yoga, Qigong, and Tae Kwon Do style movements. Then we finish each class with a slow and gentle cool down and seated hand posture practice.

These classes are for anyone that wants to get fit without hurting themselves. Dancing Gaia offers seated versions for those who are less capable. Want Dancing Gaia in your community? We'll come to your community and provide classes on your schedule. Send Mother Gaia an email here.
