Though she is from a family of clairvoyants, Blue Sargent's only gift seems to be that she makes other people's talents stronger, and when she meets Gansey, one of the Raven Boys from the expensive Aglionby Academy, she discovers that he has talents of his own--and that together their talents are a dangerous mix.

    Contact: Robyn Train   610-828-0441   rtrain@mclinc.org
   

NEW SESSION BEGAN FRIDAY, October 3rd         10:00AM TO 11:00AM

THIS IS AN 8-WEEK SESSION – AND A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR B EGINNERS TO JOIN THE GROUP

1 HOUR CLASS - $40 FOR 8 WEEKS PAYABLE AT FIRST CLASS OR $8/CLASS

Tai Chi is a gentle ancient practice that originated in China. For centuries, the Chinese have understood the immense health benefits of Tai Chi.  Now east meets west as Tai Chi is being recognized for its unique energy and power by Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, the Arthritis Foundation, and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) – just to name a few. 

Tai Chi has been shown in scientific studies to reduce pain, stiffness and fatigue, and improve physical function, muscle strength, flexibility/mobility, and balance.  It also promotes correct body posture, integrates body and mind, relieves stress, and improves Qi (life energy).  It is a progressive exercise in the sense that no matter at what age one starts, skills can be developed. Once you start you can continue to progress to a higher level for the rest of your life.

We begin our practice with Qigong exercises (often called Meditation in Motion), a warm up and cool down. We’ll also learn a NEW PROGRAM and continue to practice our ongoing program with a combination of basic and advanced movements.  Our focus includes breathing techniques, visualization, and imagery. It is a fun and relaxed class!

No special equipment is needed – just comfortable shoes and clothing.  As always, participants should check with their doctor before participating in any physical program.

FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO SIGN UP FOR CLASS, CALL OR EMAIL LINDA DEMEDIO.

    Contact: Robyn Train   610-828-0441   rtrain@mclinc.org
   

NEW SESSION BEGAN FRIDAY, October 3rd         10:00AM TO 11:00AM

THIS IS AN 8-WEEK SESSION – AND A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR B EGINNERS TO JOIN THE GROUP

1 HOUR CLASS - $40 FOR 8 WEEKS PAYABLE AT FIRST CLASS OR $8/CLASS

Tai Chi is a gentle ancient practice that originated in China. For centuries, the Chinese have understood the immense health benefits of Tai Chi.  Now east meets west as Tai Chi is being recognized for its unique energy and power by Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, the Arthritis Foundation, and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) – just to name a few. 

Tai Chi has been shown in scientific studies to reduce pain, stiffness and fatigue, and improve physical function, muscle strength, flexibility/mobility, and balance.  It also promotes correct body posture, integrates body and mind, relieves stress, and improves Qi (life energy).  It is a progressive exercise in the sense that no matter at what age one starts, skills can be developed. Once you start you can continue to progress to a higher level for the rest of your life.

We begin our practice with Qigong exercises (often called Meditation in Motion), a warm up and cool down. We’ll also learn a NEW PROGRAM and continue to practice our ongoing program with a combination of basic and advanced movements.  Our focus includes breathing techniques, visualization, and imagery. It is a fun and relaxed class!

No special equipment is needed – just comfortable shoes and clothing.  As always, participants should check with their doctor before participating in any physical program.

FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO SIGN UP FOR CLASS, CALL OR EMAIL LINDA DEMEDIO.

Movie Night

Thursday, October 16, 2014

Refreshments compliments of Weis Markets, Plymouth Meeting.

Thank you to the Friends of the Library for sponsoring this program!

The Jeanes Library will be showing the cult classic film from 1958, The Blob, starring Steve McQueen. This is the story of an alien life form consuming everything in its path as it grows and grows. The theatre used in this production was the Colonial Theatre in Phoenixville, just up the road. Our presenter, Liz Zietz, attended a full weekend program on The Blob this summer and she has lots of information to share with us. 

The program will be held in the Community Room and includes a 15 minute introduction and a half hour discussion afterwards. The discussion will be led by local resident, "film buff," and now, "Blob expert," Liz Zietz. Please let us know if you are coming by signing up via our interactive calendar.

NEW SESSION BEGAN FRIDAY, October 3rd         10:00AM TO 11:00AM

THIS IS AN 8-WEEK SESSION – AND A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR B EGINNERS TO JOIN THE GROUP

1 HOUR CLASS - $40 FOR 8 WEEKS PAYABLE AT FIRST CLASS OR $8/CLASS

Tai Chi is a gentle ancient practice that originated in China. For centuries, the Chinese have understood the immense health benefits of Tai Chi.  Now east meets west as Tai Chi is being recognized for its unique energy and power by Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, the Arthritis Foundation, and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) – just to name a few. 

Tai Chi has been shown in scientific studies to reduce pain, stiffness and fatigue, and improve physical function, muscle strength, flexibility/mobility, and balance.  It also promotes correct body posture, integrates body and mind, relieves stress, and improves Qi (life energy).  It is a progressive exercise in the sense that no matter at what age one starts, skills can be developed. Once you start you can continue to progress to a higher level for the rest of your life.

We begin our practice with Qigong exercises (often called Meditation in Motion), a warm up and cool down. We’ll also learn a NEW PROGRAM and continue to practice our ongoing program with a combination of basic and advanced movements.  Our focus includes breathing techniques, visualization, and imagery. It is a fun and relaxed class!

No special equipment is needed – just comfortable shoes and clothing.  As always, participants should check with their doctor before participating in any physical program.

FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO SIGN UP FOR CLASS, CALL OR EMAIL LINDA DEMEDIO.

NEW SESSION BEGAN FRIDAY, October 3rd         10:00AM TO 11:00AM

THIS IS AN 8-WEEK SESSION – AND A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR B EGINNERS TO JOIN THE GROUP

1 HOUR CLASS - $40 FOR 8 WEEKS PAYABLE AT FIRST CLASS OR $8/CLASS

Tai Chi is a gentle ancient practice that originated in China. For centuries, the Chinese have understood the immense health benefits of Tai Chi.  Now east meets west as Tai Chi is being recognized for its unique energy and power by Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, the Arthritis Foundation, and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) – just to name a few. 

Tai Chi has been shown in scientific studies to reduce pain, stiffness and fatigue, and improve physical function, muscle strength, flexibility/mobility, and balance.  It also promotes correct body posture, integrates body and mind, relieves stress, and improves Qi (life energy).  It is a progressive exercise in the sense that no matter at what age one starts, skills can be developed. Once you start you can continue to progress to a higher level for the rest of your life.

We begin our practice with Qigong exercises (often called Meditation in Motion), a warm up and cool down. We’ll also learn a NEW PROGRAM and continue to practice our ongoing program with a combination of basic and advanced movements.  Our focus includes breathing techniques, visualization, and imagery. It is a fun and relaxed class!

No special equipment is needed – just comfortable shoes and clothing.  As always, participants should check with their doctor before participating in any physical program.

FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO SIGN UP FOR CLASS, CALL OR EMAIL LINDA DEMEDIO.
