Turning Point announces new schedule for getting in shape

Published 6:02 pm Thursday, August 8, 2019

Turning Point Healing Retreat Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to health and wellness, has announced a new schedule for classes that went into effect the first of August. Classes are taught by JoAnne Stugart on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:30-10:30 a.m. in room 214 at the Kenbridge Community Center (old Kenbridge High School) on 511 Fifth Ave. in Kenbridge.

The classes are open to both men and women. Each class has a slightly different emphasis; however, each can stand alone. Students may elect to participate in all of the classes or to select the one or two best suited to their needs. There are price breaks for those who attend two or more classes a week.

Three classes in a week’s time provide a well-rounded exercise experience. In a six-week pilot study of similar classes in the fall of 2018, measurable progress was seen in those individuals who were having various mobility issues with their joints.

Stugart, who lives in Lunenburg County, has extensive credentials in the teaching field, having been named during her career to Outstanding Secondary Educators of America and Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers. Her past teaching experience, especially in human biology and physical education, makes her well qualified as an exercise instructor. A licensed soccer coach, she has coached in the Lunenburg Recreational League and at Kenston Forest School. A certified karate instructor, she and her husband John, operated their own karate school for 15 years. Both are board members of Turning Point Healing Retreat Center.
