Click the orange bell icon to the left and select "MJCC Alert - Aquatics" to receive updates on class changes and pool schedules.
Classes are free and open to participants 14 years and older. Water fitness classes are a great way to get a challenging workout yet come out feeling refreshed! In-water exercise is great for aerobic conditioning, calorie burning, flexibility, and strengthening. All these benefits come without the stress and strain on the body associated with land-based exercise. While swimming proficiency is not a requirement to participate, comfort in both deep and shallow water is recommended.
Water exercise is easier on the body's joints thanks to the body's buoyancy in the water. The MJCC has a variety of classes in both pools to keep you fit and feeling good!

Introducing Aquatic Integration - a warm water, holistic therapy that encourages sensory integration through touch, communication, stillness, and movement. Rooted in watsu, zen shiatsu, somatic experiencing, and neuro-structural bodywork, Aquatic Integration offers positive effects for sensory neurological repatterning, trauma healing, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, arthritis, cerebral palsy, injury recovery, rehabilitation, anxiety, stress, and much more. Sessions are typically 60 minutes long, which include our walk and talk in the water, the supported transition into the horizontal position, use of soft floats while you relax into the bodywork, use of the fluidity of water to explore your unique ranges of motion and movement with a sense of gentle curiosity, and a smooth transition back into the upright posture.
