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: Ordinary Time
When: From the Sunday after Pentecost (May 31 in 2020) until the beginning of Advent (Nov 29 in 2020).
Colour: Green
About the Date: "Ordinary" comes from "ordinal" which means "counting" as we count the Sundays to Advent
Meaning: As crops slowly grow in the fields, this time between the major holy seasons in the church provides a time in which we can grow our faith, and then turn our focus to the mission of the church in the world.
