Yoga for You
Join us for a 60-minute Vinyasa  Yoga class with certified yoga instructors. Vinyasa Yoga consists of  flowing movements synchronized to your breath rhythm.  Modifications and intensification will be offered to meet the needs of beginner students as well as those with a seasoned yoga practice. The flowing sequence will help you build strength, increase flexibility, find mental focus, and teach you how to listen to your body. Each class will begin with warm up flows, followed by a creative standing/ balancing series, floor work and stretching, and ending with a savasana (a resting pose). We encourage the use of yoga props during practice. If you have a yoga block, a yoga strap or a hand towel you're welcome to bring them to class but they are not required. Each participant should bring a yoga mat, water and any yoga questions you may have.  We love to talk yoga and we look forward to seeing you on your mat soon! 

Instructors: Barbara Garcia-Bernardo, 200-RYT;  Elizabeth Small, 200-RYT, & Brittany Cairns, 200-RYT.

Movement in Motion -- Introduction to Silat
Pak (instructor) Adam Kripke will introduce you to Silat Tuo, an ancient 1500 year old Indonesian martial art practiced for both its self-defense applications as well as its benefits to one's mind, body, and spirit.  Students are guided through a comprehensive system of full-body movement exercises in conjunction with specific breathing, and meditation methodology.  Benefits of the art include improved sensitivity, awareness, mindfulness, stress & anxiety reduction, balance, flexibility, fine motor skills, muscle tone, as well as rehabilitation and injury prevention. 
 
This is an introduction to the art focusing on the health and spiritual benefits and movements instead of the martial art applications.  "Meditation in Motion" is also beneficial for individuals with interests in Dance, Yoga, Aikido, Chi-Gung, Tai Chi, etc; however the movements are drawn from the martial art of Silat Tuo.  (All skill and ability levels are welcome, recommended age 10+).  Second Mondays of each month.

Yin Yoga

Monette Shuttleworth from the Himalayan Institute of Pittsburgh leads this montly program. She will provide background, support tips and answer any questions!

Yin Yoga is slow-paced and meditative in nature and serves to complement to more active yoga (Yang) styles. Yin Yoga emphasizes passive postures held for several minutes at a time, with muscles in a relaxed state. The connective tissue in and around the muscles and joints is targeted.  Ultimately, Yin Yoga promotes the vitality, hydration, mobility and strength of the connective tissue. It also enhances a balanced flow of energetic circulation leading to a state of calmness, contentment and an overall lasting feeling of relaxation. Please bring a yoga mat, a pillow, and beach towel to support your practice. Registration helpful, but not necessary.

Salvaging the Fleet

Most people have an understanding of the 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.  Few are acquainted with the aftermath in which our Navy undertook the job of clearing the Harbor and salvaging what was left of the US battle fleet.  Turns out, due to luck and fierce resolve, a very great deal of the fleet could be saved. Join radio's Mike Plaskett for stories and photos of miracles of accomplishment. Ships being lifted off the muddy bottom of Pearl Harbor. Battleships being rolled over and re-floated. Warships rebuilt and sent back to battle. All in sixty short minutes!

Listen to Mike Plaskett with co-host Dale Abraham for Rhythm Sweet & Hot on 90.5 FM, WESA, an NPR station, every Saturday from 6:00-8:00 p.m.
