Senior Classes & Events

Active Older Adults Activities

Today, older adults are more health conscious and focused on overall well-being than ever before. The Y offers seniors the opportunity to maintain a healthy lifestyle, healthy relationships and a positive outlook on life. 

Active older adults live longer and have better functional conditioning. That is why the YMCA offers water exercise, yoga, volunteer opportunities, social events and more!

Our Active Older Adult (AOA) programs are designed for men and women in their 50s and older. We encourage everyone to grow in the areas of physical, emotional, social and spiritual well-being. Our active adult classes and events promote learning, fitness and well-being while fostering friendships and camaraderie. Our volunteer opportunities and social events help build lasting relationships and community ties that last a lifetime. Learn more about our programs below!
