At least three days a week, seniors living at The Retreat have the opportunity to participate in line dancing lessons, craft projects, aerobics, and yoga classes sponsored by HBC Consulting.

Some of the senior residents have organized their fitness group into SWAG – Seniors With Attitude and Grace. SWAG has begun independently fundraising within the community, soliciting donations to pay for exercise equipment and uniforms. RWCI is providing planning and operational support to this group.

We are helping the seniors stay healthy and informed by offering to track their height, weight, BMI and blood pressure on a monthly basis.

Many of the seniors have become energetic community leaders, and we’re thankful for the dynamism they bring to the Renaissance!

If you are a resident and would like more information about these activities, please contact Christian Friend at or at (704) 248-3760.
