NEW! Designation of classes deemed “Chronic Condition Friendly”

We are excited to share with you our initiative to identify new or recurrent HIP classes considered particularly relevant to individuals living with chronic conditions. We have selected classes from our Group Fitness category that encourage all levels of participation, accommodate for limitations around mobility or need for adjustment of pace and intensity. While all of HIP’s Healthy Living classes cover broad elements of self-care and health education, we chose to highlight a few that may be especially helpful for those coping with chronic conditions such as diabetes or pre-diabetes, fatigue, stable angina or other pain or mood conditions. HIP continually strives to expand our offerings to serve the diverse population at Stanford. We welcome your feedback to this end!
