Screenings consist of a series of questions to gauge memory, language and thinking skills.  The memory screening takes approximately 10 minutes and is confidential.  Participants will be provided with the results on-site.  Results are not a diagnosis, but a memory screening can suggest if someone should see a physician for a full evaluation.

The program is free of charge, however, appointments are required and will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Those interested in getting a free memory screening can schedule an appointment by calling Senator Phillips’ office at (516) 746-5924 or the Alzheimer's Foundation of America at (866) 232-8484.

YOGA NIDRA facilitated by Carolyn Carpentiere

YOGA NIDRA is a systematic process of inducing complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation to conscious dreamless sleep or the hypnogogic state; the state between waking and sleeping.

During the practice of yoga nidra you enter a state of profound relaxation while remaining aware and receptive. The practice guides us through the layers or sheaths of the body called the Koshas. They include the physical, energetic, emotional, higher intelligence and bliss bodies. 

As we bring our attention to each layer of the body, we move deeper into the more subtle layers of our being, leaving us feeling deeply restored and more connected as a whole.  It allows you to connect to your innate wisdom and higher levels of consciousness. This connection to the deep layers of consciousness allows you to release negative patterns and habits referred to as Samskaras.

It is through the continual practice of yoga nidra and its connection to deep levels of consciousness that we come to realize the true nature of the Self.

This practice is done lying down. It is suitable to bring a blanket, pillow and a mat to ensure the greatest comfort in your practice.

Carolyn Carpentiere is passionate about mind-body health and it is her belief that it holds the solution to most all health problems. Carolyn received her 200 hour yoga certification at Long Island Yoga School in 2009 and has continued to work in and study many other holistic solutions to health including Mindfulness Meditation and Reiki. She has studied at Kripalu in the Berkshires, Yoga International and the Open Center in NYC. She has passion for learning solutions to help people connect to their innate healing potential. She teaches at gyms, clinical centers, corporations and privately in the NY area.

Register beginning Monday, September 17 by calling 466-8055, ext. 208/254 or register online.
