Singercise will begin a third session on January 13, 2021. Singercise is a free, virtual class offered online for people battling Parkinson’s disease. This program is offered through the Greater Susquehanna Valley YMCA thanks to a community grant from the Parkinson’s Foundation.
Singercise aims to improve vocal intensity, speech intelligibility, respiration and swallowing. It can also provide stress reduction as well as reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Virtual class times are Wednesdays from 12:30 to 1:30 pm. The program will be offered virtually via Zoom.
Class will be led by board-certified music therapist Alysha Suley, MM, MT-BC, a member of the American Music Therapy Association and the International Association for Music & Medicine.
Registration is required and class slots are available on a first come, first serve basis. Interested participants may register online. Singercise is open to participants of any physical ability or fitness level. Musical experience and singing ability are not required. For more information, please email Alysha Suley.
The Miller Center for Recreation and Wellness recently announced the promotion of Kyle Snyder to the role of Director of Sports, Recreation & Fitness Programming. Snyder has been with The Miller Center since day one, beginning as a consultant to build sports programs including leagues, clinics and tournaments. In addition, he oversaw the development of kids’ and family programming and managed the use of all indoor space at the Center.
Snyder’s promotion comes shortly after the Center’s first anniversary where he created tremendous growth in Sports & Recreation. The new role will include overseeing the day-to-day operations of The Miller Center where he will help coach key managers and full-time employees to fulfill the mission and vision of the Center being a place where entire families can come and enjoy a holistic approach of health, wellness and recreation.
Snyder’s first act as Director of Sports, Recreation & Fitness Programming was to bring in Brian Thomas as Sports and Recreation Coordinator to oversee the registration, set up and organization of the more than 100 community offerings at The Miller Center. Thomas comes to us from Bucknell University where he worked with Bison Vision, delivering Bucknell Bison athletic events to on-air and online platforms.
