SAIL Program- Stay Active and Independent for Life, with Ashley & Ellie, is an evidence-based strength, balance and fitness program for adults 65 and older. The SAIL Program consists of aerobic, balance, stretching, and strength building exercises. The entire curriculum of activities in the SAIL program can help improve strength and balance, if done regularly. SAIL exercises can be done standing or sitting. Attending the SAIL class on Monday’s is a great way to get your week started on the right track. When you hear our 1950’s era music you’ll want to join in on the fun!
Also the SAIL Program, taught by local Physical Therapist, Margaret Aris, on DVD. The exercises are mostly in the seated position with some standing movements. Margaret's targeted exercises strengthen muscles to improve balance and flexibility. Performing these exercises are the single most important activity adults can do to stay active and reduce chances of falling.
The Strong Women's Program (men are welcome too!) is led by Margie Curtis. Strong Women is an evidence-based, community exercise program targeted to midlife and older women. Strong Women was developed from research conducted by Dr. Miriam Nelson at Tufts University. The program has groups across the nation and throughout the Columbia River Gorge. Strong Women is designed to improve your strength and flexibility so you may continue to enjoy the activities of daily living, hobbies, recover from falls or surgery, and continue to have an active lifestyle.
