Membership Information Residency Information

Resident fees apply to those who live or work in the city limits of Worthington, including spouses and school-aged children of those households. These households and companies pay taxes that support the Worthington Parks and Recreation Department and therefore pay the resident rate for memberships, programs, and rentals. All others pay the listed non-resident rate. • Two proofs of residency are required at the time of registration to receive the resident rate. Examples of proof are a valid driver’s license, check with address, utility bill, or bank statement. • Working Residents must work a minimum 20 hours a week for a company in the City limits of Worthington. Verification of payment of Worthington City taxes is required at the time of registration to receive the resident discount price. Acceptable verification is an original pay stub, dated within 30 days, that specifically denotes Worthington taxes being withheld.

Drama: Cinderella’s Glass Slipper Age: 6Y–12Y • Community Room

Cinderella sees beautiful things in her daydreams and tries to live her little, starved life in a way to deserve them. Her stepmother and sisters catch her idling and tear up the dress she has made from their discarded ones. After they have departed for the prince’s ball, the fairy godmother appears. She provides Cinderella with a dress, which puts her sisters’ glamorous gowns to shame, and sends her off to the ball in a golden coach. At the ball, she captivates the prince. But she stays too long, loses her slipper and escapes pursuit only after a breathless chase. The next day, when the prince comes looking for his lost princess, he tries the slipper on both stepsisters. Each sister tries vainly to make the slipper fit, and the prince is ready to leave before he discovers his princess. Instructor: Candace Darman–Mazur #21651 #21652

Fitness/Wellness Programs Yoga & Pilates Arupa Yoga

Hatha Yoga with Victoria

Pilates Mat Class

Your body changes every day and your yoga should be flexible enough to match its moods. Arupa’s unique approach provides a framework that will guide you through the postures, while giving you the tools and the freedom to personalize your workout. As your practice matures, instincts and intuition will inspire your movements to nurture what’s healthiest and invigorate what’s most needed. Befriend your body and awaken the insight that will bloom into your authentic expression—in yoga and in life. No beginners please. Instructor: Thatcher Ross

Gentle Hatha Yoga practice will balance and rejuvenate the body, as well as the mind. Encouraging techniques 1000’s of yrs old for consciously improving health with relaxation and meditation; awareness, breath, and postures. No experience is necessary, this is an excellent addition to any sport or workout. Yoga practice increases natural strength, flexibility and alignment. Dress very warm and ultimately comfortable for easy movement. Instructor: Victoria Anderson

Mat Pilates works the core muscles of the spine and abdominals to achieve lean muscle mass, efficient movement and improve alignment. This non-impact approach works as well for the seasoned athlete as it does for the average workout enthusiast or beginner. Level 1 (Thursday 5:45): Build a strong core while building a good foundation and understanding of Pilates mat work. The principles of Pilates will be taught and reinforced each week as new mat exercises are learned. Modifications to exercises as well as use of props will be covered. This class is geared specifically for new beginners and for those who prefer a more relaxed pace. Level 1/2 (Sunday 4:30): This multi-level class will be moderately paced (in between Level 1 & Level 2). New beginners are welcome. Level 2 (Tuesday 7:00): This class moves at a quicker pace and is geared towards those with a good foundation in Pilates. Props may be incorporated for added challenge. No new beginners, please.

Education is always beneficial. Understanding yoga’s fundamentals will make your practice safer and more effective. Receive a practical working knowledge of the primary postures, that basic asana instruction can’t provide. Learn to work with your body, in such a way that it will cooperate with your wishes. Hands-on assisting will teach you what it feels like to be in safe, stable, comfortable alignments, so they become the norm. Start your practice off right, or find out what you’ve been missing, with these essential lessons. Instructor: Thatcher Ross #21910 Sun 2:30PM–4:00PM 10 wks. R $90 | NR $120 | M $80

The Community Center will be CLOSED on Monday, May 27 for Memorial Day. No Monday classes will be held. Restorative Yoga

Age: 13Y and up • Community Room

Restorative yoga uses multiple props in poses, so that the body is fully supported. This is surprisingly potent, as it allows bodies to relax more completely, granting stretches access throughout the deepest muscles, and into ligaments. Yet, its system of tailored support makes it an accessible modality, even for those with limited strength/mobility or recovering from injury/surgery. And, as poses are comfortably cradled, they can be held for some time, making classes extra relaxing, too - which, for some, is another challenge all together. But eventually, everyone succumbs to that sweet surrender and releases into timeless stillness. Some fight it longer than others, that’s all. You’ll need to bring some props with you— towels, blankets, blocks, bolsters, pillows,whatever you have. Instructor: Thatcher Ross #21908 Tue 6:00PM–7:30PM 10 wks. R $90 | NR $120 | M $72

(Participants must be able to enter and exit the pool independently). No swimming ability is required. Exercises are performed in a ‘group’ setting; however, each individual must be able to stand and move independently. The exercises are performed slowly and gently, and they focus on range-ofmotion, flexibility, and endurance. The buoyancy of the water glides us through the movements without injury to our joints. The exercises, and the instructor, are certified through the Arthritis Foundation.

This water aerobic class will do a little of everything. It will include shallow water, deep water, weight resistance, aerobic activity, flexibility and even spend some time walking, jogging, and running in the Lazy River. This fun class will have a variety of activities and the participants will truly ‘do it all’.

Fitness Assessment & Program Design

Fitness Programs The Alexander Technique is a simple and practical method for improving freedom and ease of movement. By learning and using the principles of the technique, one is able to enjoy the true capacity for movement inherent in the design of the human body. Even with the changes of maturity or injury, the technique can help maximize movement potential and comfort. The principles of this technique can help you improve simple things like getting in or out of a chair, walking, standing, picking things up from the floor, to more complex movements like driving, using a computer, doing household chores or hobbies, or even working with your golf swing. Instructor: Donna Doellinger

NEW TIME! Circuit training is an excellent way to simultaneously improve mobility, strength and stamina in a short period of time. Under the direction of an instructor, choose stations that alternate between different strength exercises. The exercises are separated by brief, timed rest intervals, and each circuit is separated by a longer rest period. Don’t miss the first session, as we will go over each exercise in detail, learning proper posture and technique as well as equipment adjustments. Great for any fitness level! Instructor: Jeff Fickell

The focus of this class is on joint flexibility, muscle strengthening, and balance techniques to decrease the risk of falling. We will help you become more aware of your posture and give you the ability to walk more freely and with greater confidence. Instructor: Gail Dickson Apr 5–Jun 7

Griswold Center Programs Fitness Programs Fearless Falling

Age: 18Y and up • Community Center • Meeting Rooms 1&2

NEW CLASS! The fear of falling is one of our strongest phobias, and injuries from accidental falls have become epidemic, but little has been done to help people actually learn how to fall. There are basic movements you can learn at any age that will greatly reduce your chance of serious injury from a fall. Learning how to fall safely is the primary purpose of the Fearless Falling classes. Based on Tai-Chi kungfu, you will also learn how to move smoothly, avoid falls, improve your balance and awareness, and pick up some basic self-defense skills. Fearless Falling is open to all adults, but you should be physically able to get up from floor level by yourself. Black-belt instructor Mike Grigsby has been teaching kungfu and falling skills for over twenty-five years. #21805 Mon 3:00PM–4:00PM #21983 Mon 4:00PM–5:00PM R $40 | NR $52

Feldenkrais Method®— Awareness Through Movement® Age: 18Y and up • Topping Room

Feldenkrais lessons may be done standing, sitting or lying down. They explore basic movements in great detail, in a gentle manner that evokes in adults the quick, spontaneous learning of young children. This “reprograms” the brain for better posture and self-image, greater ease and pleasure in movement, and fuller relaxation in rest. Chronic tension, pain, anxiety, disability, and effects of aging are not confronted directly, but are simply left behind in a natural process of learning and improvement. Students are often surprised to find that the smallest and most gentle work produces the most profound changes. This method was developed by the late Israeli physicist Moshe Feldenkrais. Teachers and teacher trainings are certified by the Feldenkrais Guild. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing. Instructor: Melinda Murphy. #21806 Tue 11:15AM–NOON R $45 | NR$59

All ages are welcome to use skateboards or inline skates to attempt the technical challenges of the skate park, including a 3 foot quarter pipe, 5 foot bowl, concrete slide, six ramps, and steel handrails. For your protection, safety equipment, such as helmets, elbow pads, knee pads and wrist and ankle guards, is strongly recommended (Complete skate park rules can be found at worthington. org).
