Springfield Community Grange

The Pajaro Valley's local Grange, serving the communities of Watsonville, Pajaro, Royal Oaks and Moss Landing

Health & Wellness @ Springfield Grange

Starting in December 2012 and running through January 2013, the Springfield Grange will offer Zumba and Tai Chi classes to the general community. This is a trial, wherein we will assess the benefits and sustainability of hosting health, wellness, fitness and other classes at our newly revitalized rural community center. To ensure success, we need maximum participation from the community. English and Spanish language flyers are available at the bottom of this post.

On Tuesdays, teacher Chris Lasher will host a ZUMBA class from 5 PM to 6 PM.

On Thursdays, teacher Stefanie Bishop will also host a ZUMBA class from 5:45 PM to 6:45 PM.

And on Saturdays, teacher Jaime will teach a 1 hour long Tai Chi class from 10 AM to 11 AM.

The first ZUMBA will take place on Tuesday, December 4th, and the first TAI CHI class will take place on December 8th. The last ZUMBA will take place on Thursday, January 31st, and the last Tai Chi class will take place on January 26th.

We ask that students contribute a $1 to $10 donation each class (based on income) to help cover the instructors costs and to help build the program.

ZUMBA is a popular style of aerobic dance that incorporates latin-inspired rhythms and choreography to make for an intense, stress and calorie busting workout. Please come prepared to Zumba classes at the Grange with appropriate footwear, a towel, and a water bottle. We advise participants to do all fitness activities at their own pace to ensure maximum benefit and enjoyment, and to minimize the risk for injuries.

TAI CHI is an ancient and gentle form of marshal arts that incorporates slow, graceful and gentle movement with breathing exercises. It is generally safe for people of all ages and fitness levels and can be adapted for people of different physical abilities.
