Calendar Jan 1, 2021

Stay Healthy and Fit through Juniper Online Classes

Juniper is a Minnesota-based organization that brings evidenced-based health and wellness classes to older adults, helping them stay well, improve their balance, prevent falls, and get fit! Until March 2020, these classes met face to face with groups of people and an instructor. Now these classes are being offered online, meaning a course might be offered in Paynesville and someone 90 miles away in Brainerd can take it!

2nd Half with Lyngblomsten has partnered with Juniper in the past to offer in-person classes, so we’re excited to share these online opportunities with you! If you are struggling with diabetes, chronic pain, heart disease, depression, or any other chronic condition, one of the Living Well classes might be just right for you. If you are concerned about your ability to get around safely and you want to avoid falling, check out the Tai Ji Quan or the Stay Active and Independent for Life (SAIL) class.

Visit www.yourjuniper.org to learn about opportunities and sign up. For more information, call Lynn Amon, 2nd Half with Lyngblomsten, at (651) 301-9445.
