Beginning Restorative Yoga Class with Martha Llewellyn
We work very hard in our lives, and while we may sleep, we rarely take time to rest. Restorative yoga poses help us learn to relax and rest deeply and completely.
This style of yoga can be a very complete workout that increases flexibility and strength, while incorporating breathing techniques that can both energizing and calming.
This beginner’s class helps focus our thoughts and bodies to help relieve stress and promote relaxation even after the class has ended.
This is a weekly ongoing class in our Health and Wellness Studio and there is no charge for these classes. Come restore your health and strength and see how it helps revive your spirits!
For more information please call 541-265-9617, or go to www.newportoregon.gov/sc. Come by at 20 SE 2nd St., Newport, next to City Hall, and check out the NSAC.Share on Facebook

The Newport 60+ Activity center is partnering with OHSU to offer certified coach training for “It’s Matter of Balance” program. It is federally recognized as an “evidence based” program meaning that its ability to reduce falls has been proven through research. It is designed to help people manage concerns about falls and increase physical activity. There is no cost to become a coach.
“A Matter of Balance” coaches help seniors become more confident about managing falls by believing that they can increase their strength, find ways to reduce falls, and protect themselves if they do fall. In addition, participants report that they have increased the amount they exercise on a regular basis.
“A Matter of Balance” coaches need good communication and interpersonal skills, enthusiasm, dependability and a willingness to lead small groups of older adults. Coaches also need to be able to lead low to moderate level exercise. Coach training involves 2 sessions by a Master Trainer held April 18th and 19th from 1-5:30. A coach’s handbook is provided.
Or, you can always give us a call at 541-265-9617.
We are located at 20 SE 2nd St., next to City Hall, in front of the Newport Recreation Center.

Please come for a friendly game of Bunco, every 3rd Thursday at 1:00 PM, in the lounge of the Newport 60+ center. Julie Piontek has been leading the group for 5 years and welcomes all new players as well as beginners. Some Bunko players come from Seal Rock and others from Depoe Bay and car pooling is available.
This Bunko game is for fun and laughter. Julie said, “The best thing about Bunco is that it allows players to socialize, make friends, and have a good time while playing”. She also indicated that the game is a “no brainer” for people to learn. Staff in the office will attest to the excitement that ensues after receiving a BUNKO. The have had to shut the office doors due to the laughter that emanates from the BUNKO room. If players roll and get three of a kind (other than the number they are rolling for) they will have a “Baby Bunco”. The group generally has from four to five tables playing. The goal is for the head table to reach twenty-one points and the remaining tables can reach up to sixty points. Winners for each table will form a new table. Julie said, “The most enjoyable part of Bunco is the players having a great time”.
