Staying in shape is often a big part of maintaining good elder health. Even moderate amounts of regular physical activity can help stave off disease and improve overall well-being. The Gahanna Senior Center offers a variety of wellness activities including Yoga Gold, Zumba, Tai Chi, Forever Fit, Line Dancing and Table Tennis. Please see the most recent issue of the Senior Spotlight newsletter for a current schedule of activities.
Many of our programs would not be possible if not for the generous support of our community sponsors. Opportunities include special event sponsorships, lunch & learn meal programs, clubs & league sponsorships, among other great ways to support our programs. Please contact the Senior Center if you would like to get involved!
