Thrive bringing senior wellness program to Herb Garden

CORKERY – Thrive Older Adult Wellness is introducing an eight-week walk and workshop program held on the beautiful grounds of The Herb Garden starting Sept. 15.

“Many of you know that I had just begun to start up a fitness and wellness business for people ages 65 and up this past winter,” Betts released in a statement last week. “The launch happened to coincide with the beginning of the pandemic. So, over the past few months, I’ve been adjusting my original plan, have expanded my services to include people ages 40 and up, and have adapted my services to meet the needs created by our new reality. I’m sharing the news of my new launch with you in hopes that you will take a moment to share with people you know in our community who you think may be interested.”

Thrive will be offering two new eight-week programs at The Herb Garden starting in September.

Wellness Walk and Workshop series for ages 65+: participants enjoy a trail walk (even terrain, no elevation), followed by movements to improve balance, stability and mobility. Then, they take a lunch break while chatting with other participants. After lunch, in the workshop portion of the session, they learn about healthy eating, age-appropriate physical activity guidelines, and get tips for staying active in the colder months ahead. Suitable for beginner fitness level and people starting out with learning about healthy eating. Max 6 participants.

Starts: Tuesday, Sept 15, 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
