You'll find a surprising variety of activities in the just-out Eugene Recreation Guide, including:
• women over 50 practicing self-defense,
• teens designing fashions or making a stop-motion film,
• men and women officiating their own volleyball game, and
• people of all ages and abilities enjoying time with each other.
That’s just a small picture of all the activities listed in the 80-page winter/spring Eugene Recreation Guide. Registration is open now and if you register in a class or activity before Jan. 9, you’ll be entered in a drawing for a $50 Recreation gift card.
Yoga is a popular activity among Recreation patrons, especially this time of year, so its not surprising that the Rec Guide lists several yoga classes for differing preferences and abilities. Recreation also offers a variety of land and water fitness classes, from Gentle Exercise to Total Body Workout. Find the right class for you before paying for the entire series by enrolling in a one-day, Try-for-Free class the week of Jan. 4-10.
To reward you for working on your fitness, the Aquatics program challenges you to “commit to fit” during February. When you make five visits to one of the pools to take a water fitness class, use the fitness center or swim laps on your own, and you’ll be entered to win in another prize drawing. Enter as many times as you like.
The guide also lists plenty for kids to do from January -June, including fun activities on no-school days and spring break. The Adaptive program offers a variety of social, fitness and fun activities for individuals with a disability, including wounded and disabled veterans.
Registration is now open for most classes. Check out all that Eugene Recreation has to offer in the virtual Winter/Spring Guide at http://www.eugene-or.gov/recenroll or pick up a paper guide at City community center, pool, or libraries and many other public locations.
