In addition, exercise classes focus on cardiovascular health, resistance training, stretching, and core strengthening.

These exercise sessions also incorporate varied activities such as yoga, dance movement therapy, and circuit training. Socialization and stress reduction is enhanced through the use of art and horticultural therapy, with each of these activities being held on a monthly basis.

The MS Healthy Living Program is held every Thursday from 9 a.m. to noon, followed by light snacks. The cost is $25 per month. If you wish to register for the program, or if you have any questions, please contact Mary Clare Schafer RN, MS, ONC, CRRN (program director) at 215-218-3905.
