Ashland Family YMCA instructors create virtual lessons to help keep people active at home

ASHLAND, Ore. — For anyone looking to stay busy at home, the Ashland Family YMCA is creating virtual lessons for adults and children.

At-home gymnastics, yoga, karate and swim lessons are just a few of the topics the YMCA is going over and uploading to the web.

Today, NBC5 News was able to watch the Y’s aquatic director create a video on water safety.

“We’re trying to engage people by going virtual, we’ve done some virtual swim lessons, the fitness group has done a bunch of yoga classes and fitness things and so I thought it would be another idea to kinda keep the community engaged,” said aquatic director, Chad Brookman.

The Ashland Family YMCA posts new videos often.
