Strenght Training

Enjoy the healing benefits of Yin Yoga for both the mind and the body. This style of yoga is a more meditative approach with a physical focus that goes much deeper to access the deep connective tissues within the body that encompass a joint, such as the hips, pelvis, and lower spine. Yin Yoga postures are done mainly on the floor, and are unique in that you are asked to relax in the posture, soften the muscles and focus on the breath as you hold each posture for several minutes. As one ages, flexibility in the joints decreases, and Yin Yoga is a wonderful way to maintain that flexibility and live a healthy way of life. (KK)

Join us for a fast-paced, high energy strength training class. In this easy to follow and fun workout, all the major muscle groups will be targeted as we move through blocks or combinations of exercises for all levels of fitness. Emphasis will be on careful form and technique as well as maximizing every minute we are working out! (KK)

Warning of Risk Recreational activities are intended to challenge and engage the physical, mental, and emotional resources of each participant. Despite careful and proper preparation, instruction, medical advice, conditioning, and equipment, there is still a risk of serious injury when participating in any recreational activity. Understandably, not all hazards and dangers can be foreseen. Depending on the activity, certain risks, dangers, and injuries can occur due to inclement weather, slips and falls, poor skill level or conditioning, carelessness, horseplay, unsportsmanlike conduct, premises defects, inadequate or defective equipment, inadequate supervision, instruction or officiating and all other circumstances inherent to indoor and outdoor recreational activities. The West Chicago Park District is committed to conducting all recreation programs and activities in a safe manner. We continually strive to reduce such risks and insist that all participants follow safety rules and instructions. However, it is impossible for the West Chicago Park District to guarantee absolute safety.

The waiver and Release form must be signed by the participant if 18 years of age or older; or by a parent/guardian if under the age of 18. Individuals who refuse to sign the Waiver and Release form will not be allowed to participate in District programs.
