TAI CHI FOR HEALTH

Fridays at 10:00 am

in the Community Room

*NEW SESSION DATES AND COST TO COME*

Tai Chi, although a martial art, is practiced primarily for its health benefits … And, for good reasons. Scientific studies show that it helps chronic conditions such as arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes, and that it improves balance, prevents falls, and reduces stress.

The practice of Tai Chi includes cultivating Qi, the vital life energy, which in turn, relaxes us and uplifts our spirits. Most importantly, Tai Chi is an enjoyable form of exercise that people of any age can learn and practice. And, we have a great group of people practicing already!

So come join our class. Feel better … improve your posture, your cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, and flexibility. 

This class is suitable for beginners.

Always check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program. 

To register for the class please call or email Linda DeMedio, Certified Tai Chi for Health Instructor at 215-694-1863 or taichilcd@yahoo.com

*SCHEDULE TO COME*

“Flexibility is the Fountain of Youth." Really.

There are about 620 muscles and 200 bones in our body. Often several muscles are attached to the same bone, each pulling in a slightly different direction. (For example, foot weakness can cause back pain.)

Following the natural chains of the muscles in continuous circular and rotational movements feels easy and soothing. Using principles of Qigong and Tai Chi, these organic movements leave you with a sense of well-being and harmony.

Our class meets before the library opens. We enter via the side entrance and the doors usually open at 8:30am (but will lock shortly after 8:45am). Wear comfortable clothing and flexible shoes. No mat is necessary.

Always check with your doctor before participating in any new exercise program.

It’s not necessary to pre-register for this class.  If you have any questions please email Linda DeMedio, taichilcd@yahoo.com.

**Since the library opens at 10 a.m., the side entrance door will be open from 8:30 to 8:45 am. After that time there will be no admittance.**

TAI CHI FOR HEALTH

Fridays at 10:00 am

in the Community Room

*NEW SESSION DATES AND COST TO COME*

Tai Chi, although a martial art, is practiced primarily for its health benefits … And, for good reasons. Scientific studies show that it helps chronic conditions such as arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes, and that it improves balance, prevents falls, and reduces stress.

The practice of Tai Chi includes cultivating Qi, the vital life energy, which in turn, relaxes us and uplifts our spirits. Most importantly, Tai Chi is an enjoyable form of exercise that people of any age can learn and practice. And, we have a great group of people practicing already!

So come join our class. Feel better … improve your posture, your cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, and flexibility. 

This class is suitable for beginners.

Always check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program. 

To register for the class please call or email Linda DeMedio, Certified Tai Chi for Health Instructor at 215-694-1863 or taichilcd@yahoo.com

Bert Filemyr's photos of the wintering hummingbirdSunday, October 9, 2016, 2-4 p.m.
Community Room

Register for this FREE program in the Library Office, Abington Free Library, call 215-885-5180, ext. 15 or email: kmcinnis@mclinc.org.

Every year a few hummingbirds of species that are common in the western part of the United States do not follow normal migration patterns and end up on the east coast during the fall.

Most are visitors at a feeder for a day or so and then move on. A very small number of these vagrant hummingbirds choose to winter in our area. This program relates the experience of Bert and Leslie Filemyr whose yard and hummingbird feeder in southeast Montgomery County (PA) was frequented by a female Rufous Hummingbird from October to the following April.

This hardy hummingbird survived the super storm “Sandy”, several snow storms, high winds, and temperatures as low as 11 degrees. Find out about hummingbird migration, banding, physiology, feeding preferences, and molt sequences through pictures taken during the almost six month stay of this hummingbird.


Bert FilemyrBert Filemyr is an active field birder both in the Delaware Valley and throughout North America. Retired from a public school teaching career, he pursues his passion for birding while researching topics related to early American ornithology. He has birded extensively in all 50 states, as well as many of the Canadian provinces. Bert has seen at least 100 species in each of the lower 48 states. He currently serves as treasurer and webmaster of the Delaware Valley Ornithological Club (DVOC) and was a member of the championship Nikon/DVOC World Series of Birding Team, the Lagerhead Shrikes. He co-authored, along with Jeff Holt the book “The Composite Prints of Audubon’s Birds of America” and a major article on Alexander Wilson in the Wilson Journal of Ornithology.

*SCHEDULE TO COME*

“Flexibility is the Fountain of Youth." Really.

There are about 620 muscles and 200 bones in our body. Often several muscles are attached to the same bone, each pulling in a slightly different direction. (For example, foot weakness can cause back pain.)

Following the natural chains of the muscles in continuous circular and rotational movements feels easy and soothing. Using principles of Qigong and Tai Chi, these organic movements leave you with a sense of well-being and harmony.

Our class meets before the library opens. We enter via the side entrance and the doors usually open at 8:30am (but will lock shortly after 8:45am). Wear comfortable clothing and flexible shoes. No mat is necessary.

Always check with your doctor before participating in any new exercise program.

It’s not necessary to pre-register for this class.  If you have any questions please email Linda DeMedio, taichilcd@yahoo.com.

**Since the library opens at 10 a.m., the side entrance door will be open from 8:30 to 8:45 am. After that time there will be no admittance.**

TAI CHI FOR HEALTH

Fridays at 10:00 am

in the Community Room

*NEW SESSION DATES AND COST TO COME*

Tai Chi, although a martial art, is practiced primarily for its health benefits … And, for good reasons. Scientific studies show that it helps chronic conditions such as arthritis, heart disease, and diabetes, and that it improves balance, prevents falls, and reduces stress.

The practice of Tai Chi includes cultivating Qi, the vital life energy, which in turn, relaxes us and uplifts our spirits. Most importantly, Tai Chi is an enjoyable form of exercise that people of any age can learn and practice. And, we have a great group of people practicing already!

So come join our class. Feel better … improve your posture, your cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, and flexibility. 

This class is suitable for beginners.

Always check with your doctor before beginning any new exercise program. 

To register for the class please call or email Linda DeMedio, Certified Tai Chi for Health Instructor at 215-694-1863 or taichilcd@yahoo.com

*SCHEDULE TO COME*

“Flexibility is the Fountain of Youth." Really.

There are about 620 muscles and 200 bones in our body. Often several muscles are attached to the same bone, each pulling in a slightly different direction. (For example, foot weakness can cause back pain.)

Following the natural chains of the muscles in continuous circular and rotational movements feels easy and soothing. Using principles of Qigong and Tai Chi, these organic movements leave you with a sense of well-being and harmony.

Our class meets before the library opens. We enter via the side entrance and the doors usually open at 8:30am (but will lock shortly after 8:45am). Wear comfortable clothing and flexible shoes. No mat is necessary.

Always check with your doctor before participating in any new exercise program.

It’s not necessary to pre-register for this class.  If you have any questions please email Linda DeMedio, taichilcd@yahoo.com.

**Since the library opens at 10 a.m., the side entrance door will be open from 8:30 to 8:45 am. After that time there will be no admittance.**

Fifteen-year-old Kambili’s world is circumscribed by the high walls and frangipani trees of her family compound. Her wealthy Catholic father, under whose shadow Kambili lives, while generous and politically active in the community, is repressive and fanatically religious at home. 
When Nigeria begins to fall apart under a military coup, Kambili’s father sends her and her brother away to stay with their aunt, a University professor, whose house is noisy and full of laughter. There, Kambili and her brother discover a life and love beyond the confines of their father’s authority. The visit will lift the silence from their world and, in time, give rise to devotion and defiance that reveal themselves in profound and unexpected ways. This is a book about the promise of freedom; about the blurred lines between childhood and adulthood; between love and hatred, between the old gods and the new.  from Goodreads

Praise for Between the World and Me

“I’ve been wondering who might fill the intellectual void that plagued me after James Baldwin died. Clearly it is Ta-Nehisi Coates. The language ofBetween the World and Me, like Coates’s journey, is visceral, eloquent, and beautifully redemptive. And its examination of the hazards and hopes of black male life is as profound as it is revelatory. This is required reading.”—Toni Morrison

“Immense, multifaceted . . . This is a poet’s book, revealing the sensibility of a writer to whom words—exact words—matter. . . . As a meditation on race in America, haunted by the bodies of black men, women, and children, Coates’s compelling, indeed stunning, work is rare in its power to make you want to slow down and read every word. This is a book that will be hailed as a classic of our time.”Publishers Weekly(starred review)

“The powerful story of a father’s past and a son’s future . . . Coates offers this eloquent memoir as a letter to his teenage son, bearing witness to his own experiences and conveying passionate hopes for his son’s life. . . . This moving, potent testament might have been titled Black Lives Matter.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review) - (Random House, Inc.)

“This is your country, this is your world, this is your body, and you must find some way to live within the all of it.”

Follows a Viet Cong agent as he spies on a South Vietnamese army general and his compatriots as they start a new life on 1975 Los Angeles. - (Baker & Taylor

A profound, startling, and beautifully crafted debut novel, The Sympathizer is the story of a man of two minds, someone whose political beliefs clash with his individual loyalties.

Deciding to go vegetarian in the wake of violent thoughts, Yeong-hye, a woman from an Asian culture of strict societal mores, is denounced as a subversive as she spirals into extreme rebelliousness that causes her to splinter from her true nature and risk her life. - (Baker & Taylor)

A disturbing, yet beautifully composed narrative told in three parts, The Vegetarian is an allegorical novel about modern day South Korea, but also a story of obsession, choice, and our faltering attempts to understand others, from one imprisoned body to another. - (Random House, Inc.)
