Newport Senior Activities Center announces
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!

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.
