Absolute Beginner Yoga

$35

with Wendy McLoon-Waterman

Calendar Sep 20, 2017 at 5:30 pm
Think you’re not flexible enough to try yoga? Flexibility is a result of yoga, not a prerequisite! Come to learn, play and reap all of the health benefits that yoga has to offer. You don’t need to be able to touch your toes - you just have to be willing to try. No yoga experience is necessary or expected. Designed for yoga novices, this seven week class series will introduce basic yoga postures and healthy alignment. Props will be available but you may want to purchase your own. Gradually the postures will be linked together with the breath into a gentle flow sequence that will stretch your muscles and calm your mind. Each session will end with a period of relaxation. Bring a yoga mat (if you have one) and wear loose fitting clothing that allows you to move freely. Wendy McLoon-Waterman is a certified yoga instructor (RYT500) and a member of Yoga Alliance. She is also a certified Yoga Therapist working with individuals with physical and/or psycho-emotional challenges, and is a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists.

$55

with Carolyn Wallace-Zani

Calendar Sep 11, 2017 at 6 pm

Paint your masterpiece using the versatile medium of acrylics! This class is designed for the beginner, who has been working in acrylics for less than five years, with an emphasis on learning the basics through practice. The former student will have the opportunity to develop more confidence by perfecting their current skill level, while the more experienced student will explore their personal style. Step-by- step instruction includes: toning the canvas, blocking-in, painting techniques, choosing materials, mediums, and additives and how to design a successful composition. Demonstrations, group critiques, and independent exercises will further enhance your learning experience. No prior painting experience is necessary. Students will progress at their own pace with individualized guidance. Carolyn Wallace-Zani owns her own studio. She frequently conducts drawing classes for children and adults.
