The Pittsfield Family YMCA announces open registrations for its Healthy Backs program designed to help those with chronic back pain by stretching and strengthening the back to help relieve and prevent lower back pain.

The six-week program starts Nov. 6.

Led by Alan Cassidy, the program will take participants through three levels of exercises starting with gentle stretches and then moving to more challenging positions.

The series is held Tuesdays and Thursdays, Nov. 6 to Dec. 18, from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m.

Y members can register for free, while non-members have a fee of $40 for the 12 sessions. Visit the Welcome Center to sign up.
