Live Online: Restorative Yoga
7:00 PM - 8:15 PM

Chirstine by a treeAAAh Slow Down.
Rest, Relax and Unwind with Restorative Yoga and Peaceful Sleep Yoga Nidra in this six-week series starting Tuesday, January 12 and continuing every Tuesday evening through February 16.

This series will be led by Quincy's own Christine, the founder of Sea.Cret Garden, who had the following to share about what she will lead:

"Restorative Yoga restores the body to its parasympathetic nervous system function, which, in turn, helps the body rest, heal, and restore balance. By allowing time for longer asanas (postures or poses) and deeper breathing, restorative yoga helps elicit the relaxation response. A restorative yoga sequence typically involves only five or six poses, supported by props pillows blanket, blocks, or bolsters that allow you to completely relax and rest. Held for five minutes or more, restorative poses include light twists, seated forward folds, and gentle back bends. Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the "going-to-sleep" stage, induced by a guided meditation. There is evidence that yoga nidra helps relieve stress."

Christine has 30 years in the healing arts, with experience and continuing education in the related fields of skincare, massage, herbal-ism, yoga, and plant spirit medicine. Christine was certified as a Yoga Instructor by the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge, MA in 1999. She teaches gentle, beginner, and intermediate Kripalu Yoga, a form of Hatha Yoga that incorporates breath work, meditation, and physical postures to quiet the mind. She has continued her training to offer Prenatal, Children’s, Partner Yoga, Yin Yoga, Five Element Yoga, 12 Step Yoga and Recovery, and Yoga Nidra.

Live Online: Restorative Yoga
7:00 PM - 8:15 PM

Chirstine by a treeAAAh Slow Down.
Rest, Relax and Unwind with Restorative Yoga and Peaceful Sleep Yoga Nidra in this six week series starting Tuesday, January 12 and continuing every Tuesday evening February 16.

This series will be led by Quincy's own Christine, the founder of Sea.Cret Garden, who had the following to share about what she will lead:

"Restorative Yoga restores the body to its parasympathetic nervous system function, which, in turn, helps the body rest, heal, and restore balance. By allowing time for longer asanas (postures or poses) and deeper breathing, restorative yoga helps elicit the relaxation response. A restorative yoga sequence typically involves only five or six poses, supported by props pillows blanket ,blocks or bolsters that allow you to completely relax and rest. Held for 5 minutes or more, restorative poses include light twists, seated forward folds, and gentle back bends. Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the "going-to-sleep" stage,  induced by a guided meditation. There is evidence that yoga nidra helps relieve stress."

Christine has 30 years in the healing arts, with experience and continuing education in the related fields of skincare, massage, herbal-ism, yoga, and plant spirit medicine. Christine was certified as a Yoga Instructor by the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge, MA in 1999.  She teaches gentle, beginner, and intermediate Kripalu Yoga, a form of Hatha Yoga that incorporates breath work, meditation, and physical postures to quiet the mind. She has continued her training to offer Prenatal, Children’s, Partner Yoga , Yin Yoga, Five Element Yoga,  12 Step Yoga and Recovery, and Yoga Nidra.

Live Online: Your Big Backyard, The New Normal New England Road Trip
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The New Normal New England Road Trip with Ted ReinsteinNo mask or gas required!

During a challenging time when most people are limiting their travel, join us on a rollicking ride around New England— all in just one hour, and all from the comfort of your own home. 

Author of three books about New England and longtime “Chronicle”  reporter Ted Reinstein is your tour guide as you go from Maine to Rhode  Island, Mt. Washington to Mt. Mansfield, and Berkshire foliage to Fenway Park. But Ted’s 20-plus years of reporting and telling stories from all over New  England means this is not your average bus tour. Prepare to meet colorful  characters who’ve done the darndest things, learn odd facts about familiar  places, and of course—this being a Ted talk—expect to visit at least a few fabulous classic diners. (Spoiler alert: Ted reveals where to find THE best  clam chowdah in America—and it’s right here in New England!) Ted will take questions following the talk.

Please join us on Zoom (meeting ID 889 9461 3078). We recommend using the free Zoom app. You can call (646) 558-8656 and use the same meeting ID to listen to the audio. You may also view the program live on our YouTube channel and on our Facebook page.  If you're new to Zoom, we recommend you install it and try it out beforehand (more than a few minutes before the program).

Live Online: Booby-Trapped: The Bra In America
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Join Ehris and Velya for an uplifting look at the history of the bra in America!

In a 2014 survey of 3,000 women, 92 percent rated their bra, “An enemy. I wish I had never met her.”

Before the bra was invented, corsets lifted breasts to artificial heights—but they pushed from below instead of lifting from above. In 1913, using two pocket handkerchiefs and some pink ribbon, socialite Mary Phelps Jacob created the “backless brassiere,” and became the first patent recipient for the modern bra. From Jacob’s invention, to the bullet bra of the 40s, to modern-day pillow cup push-up plunge bras, our boobs have been cinched, flattened down, and lifted up.

You can discover a lot about women in history by how much cleavage was showing, and the era’s most desirable breast shape. While it can be argued that a bra is a necessity—­­not an accessory—one of the best feelings at the end of the day is to release ourselves. One thing’s for certain: the American Woman is still waiting for her ideal brassiere!

This program will only be viewalbe live and will not be archived on our social media.
