Barnstead’s Strong Seniors 


Staying fit was relatively easy when we were young, but now takes it daily discipline.  Gardening and yard work are good exercise but staying strong and flexible is a year-round commitment.  Have you considered chair yoga, tai chi or an exercise class?  The Senior Centers in Pittsfield and Alton have some great options.  Yoga is also offered by other community groups such as Alton Parks & Recreation and Sage Wellness Center and Journey to Peace in Pittsfield.


The Senior Centers have the following classes each week and you may join anytime:



• Chair Yoga in Pittsfield with Tom Sherman.  The class meets between 10:45 and 11:30 am with a nominal donation.  

• Chair Yoga in Alton with Frances Nash.  The class meets between 1:15 pm and 2pm with a nominal  donation.  


Tuesday and Thursday

• Bone Builders in Pittsfield with Carol Schiferle, the center manager,from 9 to 10am.  This class also has a strong following and participants may use the ankle or hand weighs provided. There is no fee.



• Tai Chi with Marcia Wyman is offered in Alton from 9 to 10 am.   This class is very relaxing and helps with core strength and balance.  You may pay by the class or by the month.


There is an 8-week autumn class in Alton on managing falls.  The class is full but you may call the Alton Senior Center for wait list or information on future classes.  Roney Delgadillo is the Alton Center manager and the number is 875-7102.  Call Carol Schiferle in Pittsfield at 435-8482 for more information about their classes and services.
