Free chronic pain workshop at YWCA

The YWCA Greater Newburyport and Elder Services of the Merrimack Valley will co-host a chronic pain workshop on Tuesdays, beginning March 12. The free workshop will run through April 16.

The sessions will be held at the YWCA’s 13 Market St. facility from 1:30 to 4 p.m.

The workshop is suitable for individuals who have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, neuropathic pain, post-stroke pain, multiple sclerosis, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic neck, shoulder or back pain or any other types of ongoing pain.

Participants will learn how to control pain and deal with frustration, fatigue, isolation and poor sleep. The program will offer tips on eating well, starting an exercise program and increasing one’s energy level.

Registration is required. Space is limited. Contact Connie at 978-465-9922, ext. 27.

Stretch classes begin March 12

Certified fitness trainer Cyd Raschke will offer “Stretch for Release and Energy” classes on Tuesday evenings, beginning March 12.

Raschke has designed the sessions to expand range of motion, relieve stress, improve circulation, and release congestion in tissues. Athletes can reduce risk of injury by lengthening major muscle groups, computer jockeys benefit by unwinding joints constricted in sitting, and couch potatoes will find the class compatible with their lifestyle.

The series is free of charge as part of the adult education program at First Religious Society. The sessions will run from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. each week, through April 30. The class will meet in the Lower Meetinghouse, 26 Pleasant St., Newburyport. To register, contact Cyd Raschke at 978-462-2733 or by e-mail at cydira@beachbodycoach.com.
