Due to ever-increasing enrollment in our fitness and exercise classes, the number of participants prohibits bringing children to class, not only because of space requirements but also the distraction of children to the instructor and class participants. For senior classes, please check out classes for yoga, cycling, Pilates, Tai Chi and Zumba in the Lifelong Recreation section. For more information, please contact the Community Building at (785) 832-7920.
