    Basic Qigong comprises standing (or sitting) postures with slow graceful arm or leg movements for full range of motion.  Improves muscle and joint flexibility, range of motion, lymph flow, blood circulation.  It also calms the mind, improves mindfulness, and cultivates physical balance.  The extra benefit that distinguishes Qigong from most traditional physical fitness exercises is its self-healing nature as it clears energy blockages and balances the internal organs/systems towards homeostasis.  It primarily allows the wisdom of the body systems to heal themselves and resist diseases by stimulating energy flow, removing energy blockages, and reducing needless stress from the mind and body tissue.  Qigong instruction comprises a preparation phase, five elements, and ending with a closing phase-each class lasting 1 1/2 hours on a weekly or twice weekly basis.  

    Class is suited for beginners and advanced practitioners; all ages are welcome.  Comfortable loose-fitting clothes are recommended-clothing that allows free movement and full range of motion for arms and legs.  Tennis shoes, sweat socks, or bare feet are fine.  Can't make it to every class, single class is $15.

    Healing Through Creative Grieving

    Processing the death of a loved one is uniquely personal, and sometimes you need a soul-satisfying emotional release, which can be found in the creative arts. This course is about exploring and expressing emotions that are sometimes very hard to put into words. In a safe and comfortable environment, you will be able to creatively express your grief through the use of journaling, painting, memorializing, and other creative artistic media. There is no skill level needed, and with no judgment of anyone’s creativity. Just come, keep an open mind, have fun with this, and explore your own creativity and soul.

    Hatha yoga is a slow-paced gentle asana practice focusing on introducing basic yoga poses and establishing a strong foundation in the practice of yoga. Hatha yoga balances the "Ha" - sun/stimulating energy with the "Tha" - moon/calming energy.

    Restorative yoga helps promote deep relaxation of the body and the mind. Postures provide similar benefits to classic Hatha yoga postures and are usually done in a supported manner to minimize strain and maximize opening.  Dress comfortably and bring a yoga mat.

We encourage all ages,to come to enjoy the camaraderie of making music together. We will explore traditional drumming rhythms, the rhythms of sayings, Nursery rhymes,  and connect with each other and to the earth.

    You don't have to have any previous artistic ability to "Tangle". Even though a tangling creation can look intricate and complicated, once you learn how its done you'll realize how simple it is. By using repetitive patterns and deliberate strokes tangling is an easy way to create beautiful pieces of art. Studies show that tangling increases mental retention, stimulates creativity, improves ones mood, and can be calming during stressful situations. Its like taking a nap and waking up refreshed! Plus, this meditation art form is fun! Please bring a pack of sketch artistic tiles, an 11x14 mixed media pad, B, B3, B4 pencils and 005, 01 and o8 black markers. All are available at area art & craft stores.

    The Eagle Huntress A thirteen-year-old girl trains to become the first female in 12 generations of her Kazakh family to become an eagle hunter and rise to the pinnacle of a tradition that has been handed down from father to son for centuries. While there are many old Kazakh eagle hunters who vehemently reject the idea of any female taking part in their ancient tradition, the girl’s father believes that a girl can do anything a boy can, as long as she’s determined.

    The current buzz phrase “sitting is the new smoking” refers to not only how sedentary we have become but also the negative physical affects sitting posture has on our health and wellbeing. However, standing or sitting in one place, aka “prolonged static,” throughout our day, cannot be helped most of the time, so why not do it with mindful awareness? The power of education regarding what “normal and comfortable” alignment feels like in your body is the key to being able to not only reproduce it throughout your day at home and work but also empower you to change as your body signals you one moment at t time. Walk away with immediately applicable healthy postural habit tips that are essential for your present and future body’s health.

    It's a fact: women face different financial concerns than men. Even though most women worry that they'll run out of money in retirement, many do not feel confident enough to seek advice for their finances. When you plan for financial future and address your concerns, you reduce stress for yourself and for your family members. We want to help you move through life's transitions feeling financially secure and stable, so we'll walk through those concerns and and more. We’ll have ample time for a Q&A session, so please bring your questions. Feel free to bring a sack lunch!

    Indie publishing has become an acceptable way for authors to get their work out there for readers to discover. But how is that path different from traditional publishing?

    This class will explore the differences between the two, the costs involved, and the ins and outs of both publishing paths. An informed author will make the right decisions for themselves and their work. Both publishing paths will be clearly laid out, and marketing will be discussed. There will be a Q & A held at the end of the class.

    Hatha yoga is a slow-paced gentle asana practice focusing on introducing basic yoga poses and establishing a strong foundation in the practice of yoga. Hatha yoga balances the "Ha" - sun/stimulating energy with the "Tha" - moon/calming energy.

    Restorative yoga helps promote deep relaxation of the body and the mind. Postures provide similar benefits to classic Hatha yoga postures and are usually done in a supported manner to minimize strain and maximize opening.  Dress comfortably and bring a yoga mat.

    Register by the day prior to class.

Using shapes colors and patterns can represent many things and like Tangling is restful and meditative. It's easy, fun, creative and a great way to de-stress yourself.

    Basic Qigong comprises standing (or sitting) postures with slow graceful arm or leg movements for full range of motion.  Improves muscle and joint flexibility, range of motion, lymph flow, blood circulation.  It also calms the mind, improves mindfulness, and cultivates physical balance.  The extra benefit that distinguishes Qigong from most traditional physical fitness exercises is its self-healing nature as it clears energy blockages and balances the internal organs/systems towards homeostasis.  It primarily allows the wisdom of the body systems to heal themselves and resist diseases by stimulating energy flow, removing energy blockages, and reducing needless stress from the mind and body tissue.  Qigong instruction comprises a preparation phase, five elements, and ending with a closing phase-each class lasting 1 1/2 hours on a weekly or twice weekly basis.  

    Class is suited for beginners and advanced practitioners; all ages are welcome.  Comfortable loose-fitting clothes are recommended-clothing that allows free movement and full range of motion for arms and legs.  Tennis shoes, sweat socks, or bare feet are fine.  Can't make it to every class, single class is $15.  

    Advance registration ends the day before each class.
