Same old exercises can be boring, so get motivated

Start the New Year pursuing new interests

Photo Credit: SUBMITTED PHOTO - Try a new activity offered through Lake Oswego Parks and Recreation, like yoga or Tension Releasing Exercises.Exercise can get boring, doing the “same ol’ same ol’” doesn’t provide much motivation to keep moving. Leave it to Lake Oswego Parks and Rec to come up with new classes to keep fit at the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center.

We are offering a Hip Hop dance class for adults. Tension Releasing Exercises (TRE) is a three-week class designed to release tension with breathing and movement techniques. Bring Your Breath to Life is a brand new class that is similar to TRE but is only for one day.

If you need help staying on track with your New Year’s fitness resolution, join the New Year, New You class. It is an eight-week program to help you achieve your resolution. Now if fitness is not your cup of tea, we also offer other types of classes, such as the Evolution of the Story, a class that works to teach you the art of storytelling.

For all you film buffs, we are offering Exploring Films Together to discuss the art of filmmaking. If you love to travel or love to hear about different parts of the world, then Classic Travel Narratives would be a great class for you. This class will share the fascinating travels of many people all over the word, hear their stories and what they discovered.

Now there is no excuse to do the same ol’ same ol’; Parks and Rec offers a wide variety of classes to keep you fit and keep you learning well into 2015.

Not all classes listed are held at the ACC, some are at the West End Building (WEB), 4101 Kruse Way.
