Vinyasa Yoga

Join Ruth Febo, RYT®, for a 60-minute vinyasa yoga practice where we will focus on movement with breath. This is a 4-week session starting on July 16th. 
In a vinyasa class, we coordinate movement with breath to flow from one pose to the next. It is often called a vinyasa flow class, because the intent is to flow movement and breath together.  

Ruth recently completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training with Metrowest Yoga and is excited to start teaching.  
Through her teaching, she aspires to help others learn about yoga and all its wonderful benefits on and off the mat. 

Please bring a yoga mat and bottled water. Registration required. Please sign up for each class separately.

Vinyasa Yoga

Join Ruth Febo, RYT®, for a 60-minute vinyasa yoga practice where we will focus on movement with breath. This is a 4-week session starting on July 16th. 
In a vinyasa class, we coordinate movement with breath to flow from one pose to the next. It is often called a vinyasa flow class, because the intent is to flow movement and breath together.  

Ruth recently completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training with Metrowest Yoga and is excited to start teaching.  
Through her teaching, she aspires to help others learn about yoga and all its wonderful benefits on and off the mat. 

Please bring a yoga mat and bottled water. Registration required. Please sign up for each class separately.

Vinyasa Yoga

Join Ruth Febo, RYT®, for a 60-minute vinyasa yoga practice where we will focus on movement with breath. This is a 4-week session starting on July 16th. 
In a vinyasa class, we coordinate movement with breath to flow from one pose to the next. It is often called a vinyasa flow class, because the intent is to flow movement and breath together.  

Ruth recently completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training with Metrowest Yoga and is excited to start teaching.  
Through her teaching, she aspires to help others learn about yoga and all its wonderful benefits on and off the mat. 

Please bring a yoga mat and bottled water. Registration required. Please sign up for each class separately.

Mad Science

End summer with a bang! Kids of all ages and their families please join us for a Mad Science Fun-Tastic Forces magic show!

Sir Isaac Newton has never been so much fun since an apple hit him on the head! Newton’s laws of motion are demonstrated using spinning platforms and much more! Thrill as we defy logic with the Mad Science “Bed of Nails”. Watch as water pressure and the concept of nucleation create a 10 foot Mad Science soda fountain! And finish the show with rides on a Mad Science rocket-powered car!

This program does not require registration, but we ask that you please arrive on time at 6PM so to not interupt the show.
