[ARCHIVED] Get Into the Sequim of Things – Healthy Solutions on Our Way to Turning 100!

As the City of Sequim approaches it’s 100th birthday, the City’s Centennial team is partnering with the Dungeness Valley Health and Wellness Clinic to bring a series of health and wellness classes to the people of Sequim. The classes are scheduled to begin in January 2012 and continue through 2013.

“You CAN Exercise at Home” will kick off the series on Tuesday, January 24, 2012 from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m. at the Sequim Transit Center, located at 190 West Cedar Street in Sequim. The brown bag workshop will be taught by Grace Lambert, National Academy of Sports Medicine certified personal trainer. The workshop will focus on how to make time for exercise and what exercises you can do at home to tone your body. The workshop is free and open to the public.

The Healthy Solutions on Our Way to Turning 100! series comes as the nation is at a “tipping point.” A large percentage of the country is obese, many people have poor nutritional habits and many are underinsured or uninsured. Learning good eating habits, incorporating more exercise into daily life, and developing stress reduction techniques are tools that will benefit everyone in our community. With knowledge it is up to each individual to incorporate that knowledge and to make a change. It is also key that we encourage each other to make and maintain these changes.

The series of workshops and classes is being coordinated by Barb Paschal of the Dungeness Valley Heatlh and Wellness Clinic as part of the clinic’s outreach program to provide education to the Sequim-Dungeness Valley community. Look for information on upcoming classes and workshops.
