Moving for Better Balance

Older adults and those with chronic health conditions often feel they must accept impaired balance and limited mobility—this is not true.

You can build strength, improve balance, and gain confidence in your mobility through Moving For Better Balance. This is a 12-week evidence-based, instructor-led group program designed to help you improve your strength, balance, flexibility, and mobility through slow, therapeutic movements based on Tai Chi.

New session \ September 29 – December 17, 2020

Meet in Community Room at the YMCA at ACRC
Tuesday & Thursday
9:30 – 10:30am

A Y membership is not required.

To learn more about the program, please contact Program Coordinator, Brigette Rambadt. You can reach her by calling 507.433.1804 ext. 122 or by sending her an email at

Healthy Aging

Healthy Aging is feeling good enough to set new goals and mobilized enough to implement them.

No matter what your fitness level or age, The YMCA at ACRC can be a compass to navigate your own road to wellness. Did you know that just 30 minutes of physical activity a day can help prevent illness and control disease? That strength training can encourage bone formation? That Tai Chi and yoga can help to prevent falls?

The YMCA at ACRC’s Healthy Aging classes & programs are focused on developing & maintaining your functional ability to enhance your overall wellbeing.
