Changes to Classes During COVID-19

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have shifted classes to a remote learning format until further notice. 

We have both Walk with Ease (WWE) and Chronic Disease Self-Management Program (CDSMP) being implemented remotely. Each program has a workbook/tool-kit that is mailed directly to the registered participant and the programs are lead by our certified leaders.

About this Program

In just six weeks, you will learn strategies to better manage your arthritis and experience how moving can make a difference in your life and health.

Walk With Ease (WWE) is a community exercise and self-management education program developed by the Arthritis Foundation to help people with arthritis or other related conditions reduce pain, increase balance, strength and walking pace, and improve overall health. While walking is the central activity, WWE is a multi-faceted program that also includes health education, stretching and strengthening exercises, and motivational strategies. 

The program is offered in two formats: As a self-guided course where individuals use the Walk With Ease workbook on their own, and in groups led by SSSEVA’s trained leaders. The group sessions include socialization time, a pre-walk discussion covering a specified topic related to exercise and arthritis, and a 10- to 40-minute walking period that includes a warm-up and a cool-down. 

Program Objectives

  • Reduce the pain and discomfort of arthritis
  • Increase balance, strength and walking pace
  • Build confidence in your ability to be physically active
  • Improve overall health

This is a structured 6-week program. Group sessions meet twice a week for 1 hour. Space is limited; registration is required.
