Crossroads Wellness Program - Exercise Update
While our facility is closed by the CoVid19 crisis we offer the following news from Erin, one of our exercise instructors:
Erin will be broadcasting Seniors Fitness Exercise videos on the "YourTV Kingston" cable channel every weekday at 10am, with a different theme/focus each day. Themes include balls, bands, cardiovascular/aerobic exercises, weight training, balance training, and functional exercises. Feel free to follow along, pick the exercises that you most enjoy, or just watch.
In addition, these videos will also be shared on Erin's YouTube Channel and can be viewed at any time. Called "WiseMoves Seniors Fitness", it features Erin, with exercise sessions that run around 45 min. Here's the link, which is now active:

About the season: Easter
When:The Easter season lasts for 50 days following Easter (PLUS the 7 Sundays during this period), and ends on Pentecost, the birthday of the Christian Church (this year on May 31, 2020).
Meaning: Although not certain, the word "Easter" may originally derive from the Anglo-Saxon word for "spring" (Eostre), which is the time of year when Easter occurs.
Colour: White or GOLD
Event: a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, and a reminder that death does not have the final word. It is a time of renewal as we celebrate God's ongoing work in the world through his people.
