Yoga: Vinyasa Flow: Open Level

*PLEASE NOTE: Time is 10 am - 11 am (newsletter time is incorrect)*

Bring a mat, and perhaps a towel and water.  Wear lose fitting clothing. Namaste.

Lecture: Slavery & The Presidents

Marilyn Carminio will give this lecture. The history of slavery is largely anonymous and the stories of the enslaved are often relegated to a footnote in history. Because of their proximity to American presidents, the histories of those enslaved by these men are well documented although not widely known. The goal of this presentation is to tell their stories and "hear their voices."

Through vivid portraits we will learn about their daily lives and how they made sense of their existence as human beings. During this lecture you will meet a Revolutionary War hero; relive dramatic escapes; become acquainted with the first African American celebrity athletes; attend an important White House dinner and much more. Their stories are sure to inform and inspire you.

Yoga: Vinyasa Flow: Open Level

*PLEASE NOTE: Time is 10 am - 11 am (newsletter time is incorrect)*

Vinyasa is a type of yoga that links movement and breath to attain balance in the mind and body. Connecting movement with our breath links our awareness to the present. Join  Dorothy Scott for a relaxing yet invigorating class that encompasses basic yoga poses which focus on lengthening the body’s muscles, while expanding the joints as we utilize the breath to gain clarity within.  We will begin slowly to gradually prepare the body for deeper asana (poses) and end it by honoring our practice with a relaxing (meditation) sivasana.

Bring a mat, and perhaps a towel and water.  Wear lose fitting clothing. Namaste.

Registration Required: Fee: $20. 

When you register for this program, you are registered for the entire series, including February 17, 24, March 3, 10. You DO NOT have to register for each date – when you register for one class, registration includes ALL the classes in the series.
