Kaelyn Explores the Brambleton Center

Program Planner at Brambleton Center


Hey there, Roanoke County!

Feeling inspired from my visit to Green Ridge Recreation Center, I decided to check out the Brambleton Center to continue on my journey towards a healthier, more balanced me in 2023. It is learned that I am epically failing on the eating vegetables front, but luckily Brambleton Center can help with that too!

Chair Yoga at Brambleton CenterFirst, I got a quick tour of the Center and was given a brief history of the building which was originally an elementary school. You can tell the building has the school-building feel, but it has been renovated in a way that makes various rooms perfect for the specific activity.

The yoga room provides the perfect aesthetic to promote mindfulness and relaxation and is where I met with a yoga instructor to teach me a little bit about chair yoga. Chair yoga is especially beneficial for people who have limited mobility- it's all about moving your body in controlled movements that feel good to you. The class has loads of fun together!Cycling Class at Brambleton Center 

This was the perfect start to the visit as I got warmed up before heading down to try cycling. I haven't been to a cycle class but the energy in the classes always looks so exciting. I was shown the correct form and how the bike connects to the TV. It didn't take long before I was feeling the burn and out of breath.

Next, I met with an instructor of a cooking class offered at the Brambleton Center. I really needed to include this on my list of stops because cooking is not my strong suit and neither is eating vegetables. I was fortunate enough to get a few pointers that should tide me over until the class. Check out the video for the insider tips! 

Finally, I met with a few women from the therapeutic recreation team who were putting together goodie bags for the upcoming annual Valentine's Day Dance. This, along with the ACE summer camp, is one of the many events and services they offer to those with disabilities. 

Whether you're looking for a space to get some exercise or perfect a hobby, the Brambleton Center has you covered!
