In celebration of Active Aging Week, the Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department offered activities for local senior citizens including Zumba and aerobics classes, drive-in concerts, informational sessions and bingo, some of which will continue over the coming months.
The department, in collaboration with the city’s Active Aging Committee, declared Oct. 3 to 9 as Active Aging Week, with special activities scheduled for each day.
The program began with walking events over the weekend, followed by Zumba classes on Monday and Wednesday, a build-your-own-body class on Tuesday and an outdoor saxophone concert and yoga class on Thursday.
Friday’s activity will be drive-in bingo outside Elwin Mussell Senior Center. The event is free and open to residents ages 55 and up.
Even after Active Aging Week comes to a close, activities for adults will continue at Alice Trefts Park.
Free yoga classes and build-your-own-body classes for adults ages 50 and up will be offered every Tuesday and Thursday.
Every Monday and Wednesday, a “chairobics” class for ages 40 and up and a Zumba class for ages 30 and up will be offered on the outdoor patio at the park. Costs are associated with these activities.
