Our May meeting will be on Thursday, May 2nd, 2024, at the Lodge at Beaver Lake, 25201 SE 24th Street, Sammamish. We will gather at 9:30 a.m. for our social "Meet and Greet" time. At 10:00 a.m., our program will begin. May is Women's Health Month, so let's make it meaningful! Please come casually dressed and ready for some new ideas that might become healthy habits.


Barb Bruemmer will present a wonderful website she knows well: Medline Plus provides easy access to a wealth of information to answer some of our frequent health and safety questions. She will give an overview and show us how to navigate the site.


Then some of our own fellow members will lead us in some Chair Yoga.


"Chair Yoga ... is designed with the understanding that not everyone can perform traditional yoga poses on a mat. By utilizing a chair, this form of yoga provides a comfortable, safe, and accessible alternative. It's perfect for those who might find traditional yoga poses challenging, offering a way to experience yoga's benefits without the need for extensive flexibility or balance. Chair Yoga offers a range of physical benefits, making it an excellent choide for those looking to maintain or improve their health gently and effectively.

  • Improved Flexibility and Joint Health: The stretches involved in Chair Yoga are designed to increase muscle and joint flexibility gently. Regular practice can lead to reduced stiffness and increased range of motion, which is particularly beneficial for those with arthritis or other joint issues.
  • Enhanced Strength: Despite being a low-impact exercise, Chair Yoga helps in strengthening various muscle groups. Through various seated poses and movements, participants can build strength, particularly in the core, legs, and arms.
  • Better Balance and Coordination: Chair Yoga helps improve balance and coordination. This is crucial for preventing falls, a common concern among older adults and those with mobility issues.
  • Stress Reduction: Like traditional yoga, Chair Yoga incorporates breathing exercises and meditation techniques, which are effective in reducing stress and promoting mental clarity and relaxation.
  • Accessible Full-Body Workout: Chair Yoga provides a comprehensive workout that addresses the entire body. It's a holistic approach to fitness that respects the body's limits while gently pushing towards improved health and vitality."
