Spring & Summer 2014 Recreation Programs

Sunday, March 2, 2014

A note from the Director… It is with great pleasure that we bring you the 2014 Spring/Summer Program Guide. We take our community’s quality of life seriously and we think it shows inside the pages of this guide. Our great community has been growing so fast that it has necessitated the addition and creation of many new programs and expanded facilities over the past few years. These new programs, along with our timeless classics, add to the richness of living in and visiting Bozeman. So this year we focus special attention on providing the highest quality programs and facilities that a town can offer. The newer most popular and successful programs will see natural extensions and the traditional classics receive a renewed focus and enthusiasm. We love being a part of what makes Bozeman such a special place to live, learn, work, grow, and play; and we’re sure you do too. See You Out There,

Pole Walking for Stability & Mobility

The Stability and Mobility method of pole walking establishes stability, helps improve posture, and provide increased range of

motion through seated and standing exercises that utilize poles. The focus is on building core strength to increase balance. The length of time spent walking is gradually lengthened as skills increase. The pole walking techniques vary from the Walking for Fitness program. Stability and Mobility better accommodates persons with balance and mobility challenges. Each person works at his/her own pace.
