Find your center and harmnonize your body, mind and spirit with gentle yoga, breath work and meditation.

This program offers a healthy combination of exercises for the mind and body. Individuals who practice Yoga look younger and experience improvement in general health, personal appearance, mental outlook and emotional stability, regardless of age or present physical condition. Classes for beginners will start Tuesday, Sept. 18th at 6:00 p.m. at the Old Armory. The cost is $36 for four-weeks.

Wear loose clothing and bring an exercise mat or large towel for floor exercises. Scott Freiberg is the instructor. Class held when pre-registration minimum is met.

Line Dancing

The chance to learn the Electric Slide and other popular steps is here.

Line dance is a great stress reducer and emotional release as well as good exercise, providing much the same benefits as low-impact aerobics. Increase energy, improve strength and muscle tone.

Age is no factor. And you can build your stamina while having fun. Come with a friend or spouse or come alone; you don’t need a partner for line dance.

Classes for beginners are from 6 to 7 p.m. Mondays. Intermediate classes are from 7 to 8 p.m. Mondays. The classes are held at the Recreation Department building.

Low-impact aerobic class

Low-impact aerobics is a great way to get the benefits of an aerobic workout without the strain and stress associated with other exercises, and classes are offered by the Kershaw County Recreation Department.

Low-impact aerobics involves large, controlled movements and large muscle groups, and always leaves at least one foot on the ground.

Call the Recreational Department office for more information.

Zumba classes

For anyone who hates to exercise, Zumba will feel more like a Salsa party than a workout.

Zumba has a fast, energetic workout that is fun and addictive.

You get lost in the music and dance and don’t realize you’re getting such a great workout! This is a great remedy for anyone looking for a fat-burning pick-me-up with a positive energy blast that will leave you feeling happy and energized.

Zumba is not difficult and anyone can, and should, experience it. It’s a Latin-inspired cardio dance fitness class that incorporates many different dance styles and international music rhythms to provide one amazing high calorie burn workout.

No dance skills are required to participate in the class. Our classes are created to apply for all fitness levels, whether you are just starting out in finding a healthier life-style or you are already extremely active.

Zumba targets the glutes, legs, arms and abs, all while burning calories through an interval workout of fast and slow movements.

Classes will be held Mondays and Thursdays at the Olde Armory and start Sept. 13. The cost is $5 per class, $20 for once a week per session and $30 for twice a week per session. Brandy Mangum, a licensed Zumba instructor, will facilitate the class. Pre-registration is required at the Recreation Department office. Call 425-6009 for more information.

Classes will begin Sept. 6, with beginners at 7 p.m. and intermediate at 8 p.m. The cost is $40 per person for four weeks; pre-registration is required.
