Blue Zones Project benefits Willamette View employees as well as residents
On top of teaching 24 fitness classes each week at Willamette View, Rachel Sandage has also had the opportunity to be a student on the Portland senior living community’s campus.
One thing Sandage really enjoys is sitting side-by-side with residents and her fellow employees during yoga classes taught by a resident.
She’s also had the chance to take an improv workshop, an experience that lets people see each other’s silly side.
“That’s been the most fun,” said Sandage. “Employees and residents... get to see each other in a different way, and it’s just hysterically funny.”
