Building your strength with resistance training can help slow down bone tissue losses that happen as we age. More research links resistance training with improved insulin sensitivity among people with diabetes and prediabetes.  Strength training also seems to be a potent antidote to inflammation, a major risk factor for heart disease and other conditions.  In this class we will be using resistance bands, our body weight, dumbbells and a mat (the centre has mats if you don’t have one).  We work on strengthening for 30 minutes, followed by 20 minutes stretching and a 10 minute guided meditation.
