Walk with Ease is a program for people with joint pain or anyone who wants to improve their health.
You will learn how to start walking safely and stick with it. We'll be bringing a group of up to 15 people together to meet 3 times a week for 6 weeks.
Dates: August 2, 2021 -September 13, 2021 (except Labor Day on Monday, September 6)
Days: Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays
Times: 9-10 a.m.
Location: 941 Lafond Ave., Saint Paul, MN 55104 (near Frogtown Farm)
Classes include a brief education discussion, warm-up and cool-down exercises, and a 10−35 minute walk at your own pace. If you use a device like a cane or a walker to help you get around, you can still participate in the program. Participants will also receive a free gift, like a step tracker or an activity journal.
