Virtual Yin Yoga

Monette Shuttleworth from the Himalayan Institute of Pittsburgh leads this monthly program. She will provide background, support tips and answer any questions! We will meet on the 3rd Thursdays of every month. Register below for entire series (cancel registration only if canceling for whole series).  

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. 

Virtual Yin Yoga will be conducted via the free video conferencing software Zoom and a Library staff member will be supervising the session.  The Librarian coordinating the event will email each registrant a Zoom meeting invitation before the start of the program.  Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices.

A History of the Pittsburgh Steelers Virtual Program

We’re From the Town with the Great Football Team!: A History of the Pittsburgh Steelers

Presented by Abby Mendelson, who wrote the team’s Official History (now in a revised, fourth edition, available in our libraries), a lively, informative, interactive discussion of the fame, fortune, and foibles of the fabulous – and not-so-fabulous – Pittsburgh Steelers. From chumps to champs, from the team’s lowly origins, to its decades of failure, to its near-miraculous transformation into perennial champion, this three-week Zoom course will use Abby Mendelson’s text as a base and discuss the people, places, and particulars that have branded this great NFL franchise – and given a larger identity to Pittsburgh itself. You can’t miss this one! Register for all three classes below (9/11, 9/18 and 9/25). 

(September 11) The Wonder Years (1933-68)  
The gambler/promoter Art Rooney. Obscure origins. Depression-era survival. Johnny Blood. Bill Dudley. Whizzer White. Merger for World War II. Jock Sutherland. Integration. Ernie Stautner. Bobby Layne. The soiled Sixties.  

(September 18) The Noll Years (1969-91) 
Let us build Three Rivers Stadium and crowd it with the Hall of Fame: Dan Rooney. Chuck Noll. Joe Greene. Terry Bradshaw. Franco Harris. Jack Ham. Jack Lambert. Mike Webster. Lynn Swann & John Stallworth & more & more.  

(September 25) The Cowher-Tomlin Years (1992-2020)  
Post-Partum rebuilding. Super Bowls won, Super Bowls lost. Jerome “The Bus” Bettis. Heinz Field. Bill Cowher. Big Ben Roethlisberger. Troy Polamalu. Hines Ward. Mike Tomlin. Le’Veon Bell. Antonio Brown. Art Rooney II.

Small business owners: Understanding the Paycheck Protection Program (Virtual Program)

The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) is a $669-billion business loan program established by the 2020 US Federal government Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) to help certain businesses, self-employed workers, sole proprietors, certain nonprofit organizations, and tribal businesses continue paying their workers.

The Paycheck Protection Program allows entities to apply for low-interest private loans to pay for their payroll and certain other costs. The loan proceeds may be used to cover payroll costs, rent, interest, and utilities. The loan may be partially or fully forgiven if the business keeps its employee counts and employee wages stable. The program is implemented by the U.S. Small Business Administration.

Presented by SCORE.  SCORE is a non-profit organization and resource partner of the U. S. Small Business Administration. Nationally, there are 389 chapters with over 11,000 members.   Pittsburgh SCORE has counseled more than 20,000 business persons, helping to create and retain thousands of jobs in western Pennsylvania.

Virtual Yin Yoga

Monette Shuttleworth from the Himalayan Institute of Pittsburgh leads this monthly program. She will provide background, support tips and answer any questions! We will meet on the 3rd Thursdays of every month. Register below for entire series (cancel registration only if canceling for whole series).  

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. 

Virtual Yin Yoga will be conducted via the free video conferencing software Zoom and a Library staff member will be supervising the session.  The Librarian coordinating the event will email each registrant a Zoom meeting invitation before the start of the program.  Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices.

(September 18) The Noll Years (1969-91) 
Let us build Three Rivers Stadium and crowd it with the Hall of Fame: Dan Rooney. Chuck Noll. Joe Greene. Terry Bradshaw. Franco Harris. Jack Ham. Jack Lambert. Mike Webster. Lynn Swann & John Stallworth & more & more.  

(September 25) The Cowher-Tomlin Years (1992-2020)

We’re From the Town with the Great Football Team!: A History of the Pittsburgh Steelers

Presented by Abby Mendelson, who wrote the team’s Official History (now in a revised, fourth edition, available in our libraries), a lively, informative, interactive discussion of the fame, fortune, and foibles of the fabulous – and not-so-fabulous – Pittsburgh Steelers. From chumps to champs, from the team’s lowly origins, to its decades of failure, to its near-miraculous transformation into perennial champion, this three-week Zoom course will use Abby Mendelson’s text as a base and discuss the people, places, and particulars that have branded this great NFL franchise – and given a larger identity to Pittsburgh itself. You can’t miss this one! Register for all three classes below (9/11, 9/18 and 9/25). 

(September 11) The Wonder Years (1933-68)  
The gambler/promoter Art Rooney. Obscure origins. Depression-era survival. Johnny Blood. Bill Dudley. Whizzer White. Merger for World War II. Jock Sutherland. Integration. Ernie Stautner. Bobby Layne. The soiled Sixties.  

(September 18) The Noll Years (1969-91) 
Let us build Three Rivers Stadium and crowd it with the Hall of Fame: Dan Rooney. Chuck Noll. Joe Greene. Terry Bradshaw. Franco Harris. Jack Ham. Jack Lambert. Mike Webster. Lynn Swann & John Stallworth & more & more.  

(September 25) The Cowher-Tomlin Years (1992-2020)  
Post-Partum rebuilding. Super Bowls won, Super Bowls lost. Jerome “The Bus” Bettis. Heinz Field. Bill Cowher. Big Ben Roethlisberger. Troy Polamalu. Hines Ward. Mike Tomlin. Le’Veon Bell. Antonio Brown. Art Rooney II.

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. 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. We will meet on the 1st Tuesday of every month. Register below for entire series (cancel registration only if canceling for whole series).  

Mind/Body Practice and Silat Tuo will be conducted via the free video conferencing software Zoom and a Library staff member will be supervising the session. The Librarian coordinating the event will email each registrant a Zoom meeting invitation before the start of the program. Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices. Once Zoom is installed, you will be able to join the virtual Library program.

Registration is required. By registering for this event you have agreed to comply with the library's patron behavior policy. All non-compliant participants will be immediately and permanently blocked from further participation.  Because the Librarian facilitating the event will not be able to provide live technical support during the virtual program, it is strongly encouraged you familiarize yourself with Zoom in advance of the program. You can also contact the Library’s Virtual Reference Service for assistance learning Zoom. You can also join a test meeting to familiarize yourself with Zoom. For more in-depth instructions please visit the Zoom support page on joining a meeting.
