Zentangle Meditative Drawing with Joyce Amend

Zentangle is a meditative process of creating art, wherein simple shapes and lines combine to make beautiful and interesting artworks. If you can draw a line and a circle (perfectly or not), you can Zentangle. The focus of Zentangle is on the process of creation rather than the end result. It is both fun and stress-relieving. Zentangle embraces beauty and accepts imperfections. This absorbing art form can be enjoyed anywhere and everywhere.

Everybody Can Do Yoga with Sara Bigelson

Bend, Breathe & Stretch with Andy Ferragamo

BEND, BREATHE & STRETCH is an hour class that incorporates 30 minutes of yoga postures (asanas) followed by 30 minutes of full body stretching, flexibility and balance movements.  This class is designed for all ages and is of benefit to deconditioned participants as well as to athletes. It can be a class to get you back in contact with your body or alleviate soreness and tightness from your athletic/sports pursuits or routine activities. No experience is necessary.  Yoga (30 minutes) is for people of all ages. It is never too late—or too early to start. Yoga includes a vast repertoire of postures and their variations to satisfy a wide range of students and varying abilities. Your practice helps combat stress, improves your flexibility, teaches healthy breathing techniques and generally improves or maintains your health and fitness level.  Stretching (30 minutes) is a very important component of any fitness regime; for general fitness or for better sports performance and injury prevention. Stretching relaxes your muscles and increases blood flow and nutrients to your cartilage and muscles. Other benefits of stretching include: improvements in posture, athletic performance, and energy level, reduction in stress (and encourages an optimistic outlook), soreness and cholesterol levels.

This will not be a boring, “Am I done yet??” class. We will use straps, yoga blocks and other props that will assist and enhance your workout………and STILL have FUN!! Imagine!!  Please bring a yoga mat and water to class.  Drop in fee $13/class.
