FREE TRIAL CLASSES
If you're living with diabetes—especially type 2 diabetes—regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do to lower your blood sugar. Increased physical activity can work just as effectively as some medications, with fewer side effects. If you're at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, regular exercise can help delay or even prevent diabetes from developing. In this program, we provide 20 minutes of moderate to vigorous-intensity aerobic exercises and 20 minutes of resistance exercises, followed by 5 minutes of stretching and cool-down.
This program will help you improve the health of your bones, gain muscular strength and endurance and prevent fall-related injuries. The exercises are tailored to cater to older adults with osteopenia or osteoporosis.
Each Tai Chi class will offer balance, coordination and breathing exercises using traditional flowing Tai Chi movements.
SIX-WEEK MINDFULNESS WORKSHOP
This six-week self-awareness mindfulness workshop helps to boost participants' soft skills development through self-awareness activities and mindfulness basics. Participants learn to hold space for reflection and the development of human potential. They forge deeper connections with everyone around them; explore their talents and gifts, ask questions, and build a repertoire of resources to help them develop as knowledgeable, caring and responsible citizens.
If you have balance and mobility challenges and are looking for an exercise program, our TIME (Together in Movement and Exercise) program might be what you need! The exercises look similar to important movements performed in daily life, such as: rising from a chair, shifting your weight, reaching, and stepping up to a curb. The majority of the class is spent practicing these functional movements while standing. The program is designed by physiotherapists at Toronto Rehab, and led by a TIME trained fitness instructor.
PARKINSON'S WELLNESS RECOVERY (PWR! MOVES FOR PARKINSONS LEVEL 1 BASICS)
This progressive exercise class will focus on total body exercises that promote flexibility, strength and power.

A series of rhythmical exercises are performed lying down on the floor, on all fours, seated and standing.
Note that participants should be at the following fitness level:
· Can get up and down off the floor by themselves with or without the use of a chair.
· Have not had two or more falls in the past 6 months.
· Have not experienced dizziness when transitioning from lying down to standing or sitting.
