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 required to get Zoom link. Registration is for the entire series and you need not cancel unless you are cancelling for the whole series. 

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. 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.

An Evening with the Warhol Museum

Join Heather White, Artists and Communities Program Coordinator at the Warhol Museum, for an evening of discussion of Warhol's work, and a demonstration of one of his techniques, the Acetate Collage. Learn how Andy Warhol combined photography, collage, silkscreening, and drawing to create a more “collaged” look and feel in some of his commissioned portraits in the 1970s and 1980s. By adding torn graphic color aid papers underneath acetate and then drawing on top, he was able to experiment with different color combinations before committing to a color scheme for his final silkscreened portrait.

Participants will have an opportunity to learn the process, and try it out! No artistic training necessary, all suplies will be provided. 

Registration required!

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 required to get Zoom link. Registration is for the entire series and you need not cancel unless you are cancelling for the 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 required to get Zoom link. Registration is for the entire series and you need not cancel unless you are cancelling for the whole series. 

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. Once Zoom is installed, you will be able to join the virtual Library program.

Mind/Body Practice and Silat Tuo Virtual Program
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.
