Nanaimo TAPS (Therapeutic Activation Program for Seniors) offers a combination of free social, mental, and physical activation programming for isolated and/or marginalized seniors. Our primary activities include chair yoga classes and exercise groups, with a monthly rotation of educational and participatory programming. We currently offer a hybrid program, with the majority of sessions held through Zoom with a selection of in-person recreation options.
