C. C. Mellor: Your fitness partner!
CC Mellor Library has recently partnered with Allegheny County’s new health program Live Well Allegheny, embracing the concept of living well which includes physical health, mental wellness, personal and community safety, prevention and preparedness, and much more. In addition to our large current collection of print and online materials on health and fitness, CCM offers these three weekly programs to improve one’s health.
Mind and Body Adult Classes
Join us on Monday and Wednesday mornings from 9:00-9:45 am for exercises that include easy dance moves, Pilates-based stretching and strength building, and yoga inspired movement. The classes will help you improve core strength and overall flexibility, tune up your cardiovascular system, reduce stress, improve posture, and feel better.
The cost is $5.00 a class or $25 for 6 sessions. You’ll need comfortable loose stretchy clothing, athletic footwear or sturdy rubber soled shoes, and a thick mat. The program runs through December 9 and is led by Edgewood resident Rebecca Taksel. Call the Library to register or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This parent-led program is offered every Friday at 10:30 am. Children to age 6 participate in bend and stretching exercises, learn yoga positions, and have great fun. No sign up is necessary, just drop in for this half hour program.
Even though most of the leaves have fallen and the temperatures have dropped a bit the hearty Wisewalkers of CCM continue their Tuesday and Thursday walks in Frick Park’s Fern Hollow. We meet in the parking lot at the base of Lancaster Avenue at 8:30 am for a one-hour walk. In December, Wisewalk will begin at 9:00 am. New walkers receive a t-shirt and a pedometer. Join us!
