Promo flyer for Zoom-based Otago exercise classes

Looking to get stronger and more fit? Join Otago: a free exercise class for people living with HIV!

Otago is an evidence-based strength and balance group exercise class, offered free on Zoom. All of the exercises can be modified for different fitness levels. Otago meets 1 time per week for 8 weeks and each session is 30 minutes long. You do not need to turn on your camera to participate, and no equipment is needed for class. This class is offered specifically for members of the LGBTQ community, or those living with HIV, as well as their friends and allies.

Why should you participate?

  • Exercise improves your physical health: strength, endurance, and flexibility
  • People living with HIV may have conditions like neuropathy or fatigue that can be improved with exercise
  • Participating in exercise, especially in a group, improves mood and reduces depression and anxiety

Otago classes are offered at these times:

  • Tuesdays 11:00-11:30 am CT (9:00-9:30 am PST): Otago (Starts July 19th, for 8 weeks)
  • Fridays 3:00-3:30 pm CT (11:00-11:30 pm PST): Otago (Starts July 22nd, for 8 weeks)

Questions? Contact Andy Rapoport: 773-508-1055 or andy.rapoport@cje.net

These evidence-based exercises programs are offered for free through CJE SeniorLife’s Research Institute through two grants provided by the Administration for Community Living.
