Pickleball with Michele

Pickleball is best described as a combination of badminton, ping-pong, and tennis. Players use a paddle that is reminiscent of ping-pong paddles but is bigger and usually made of more advanced materials. The ball used is very similar to a plastic whiffle ball with holes covering the surface. Pickleball can be played as singles or doubles, just like tennis. Pickleball is truly a game for all ages, shapes, and skill levels. The rules are simple enough for kids to easily pick up and many people develop a passion for the sport after just a couple of games. Because of the smaller court size and light ball, the game is incredibly popular among seniors looking for a low-impact form of exercise.

Each class starts with one or two Sun Salutations followed by poses based on the knowledge/abilities of the participants that will not only challenge but improve one’s balance, strength and flexibility.
