Get strong, improve balance and feel good

Juniper classes will help you move more easily, sleep better and reduce your risk of falling!

Join us for a free or low-cost, small group class. You'll meet new people and jump-start your ability to do the things you love. 


 

September 19-24 is Falls Prevention Awareness Week

It’s a great time to take steps to reduce your risk of falling and maintain your independence. But you don't need to do it alone. Falls prevention is a community effort and everyone has a role to play in reducing the risk of falls.
