Gentle Yoga

Gentle yoga makes yoga accessible to everybody, no matter your physical abilities. Breathing and posture work is taught like traditional yoga classes, but postures are modified to accommodate physical abilities and limitations allowing participants to reap benefits of reduced stress and increased flexibility and strength. Counteract and even slow down the body’s aging process through yoga practice by keeping limbs and organs strong, flexible and nourished with a healthy flow of oxygen.

The health benefits of gentle yoga:

  • Helps regulate sleep
  • Improves strength and eases arthritis
  • Hinders excess weight
  • Balances mood and lowers anxiety
  • Aids lung and breathing problems

Offered in Greenville, Mondays, 10:00 am - 11:00 am. Class held in the Group Exercise Room.

Water Aerobics

Exercise in the pool uses the water properties of buoyancy, resistance and turbulence to stretch and strengthen muscles, increase cardiovascular health, tone and trim and have fun. All ages can participate successfully in water exercise. Regular aquatic exercise can lead to gains in cardiovascular endurance and muscular strength.

Many people unable to exercise on land are able to exercise successfully in the water. Water buoyancy holds most of the body weight, enabling movement without excess impact on body joints.

Vidant Wellness Centers offer a variety of aquatic exercise classes as well as group and individual swim lessons at their indoor pools.
