New Year New You Virtual Programs

*Virtual Slow Flow Yoga*

*Tuesdays — January 5, 12, 19, 26; February 2, 9 — 4:30-5:30 p.m.*

Take some time to slow down and dive deeper into the poses, while gaining
strength, flexibility, and core balance. Use the power of your breath and
intention to slowly move through your practice with intention and
introspection in this vinyasa style class. This is a moderately challenging
class where pose variations will be offered to help everyone find their
unique level of success. Have a yoga mat, a yoga block or two, and wear
comfortable clothes that will allow you to move well. Take some time for
yourself to move and breathe with grace, poise, and ease.   Learn more

*Meditating on the Wisdom of Nature*

*Wednesday — January 13 — 4:30-5:30 p.m.*

With a nature-based meditation practice, we can train our minds to become
less reactive and more at peace. Nature has much to teach us about daily
living when we are quiet enough to hear. From the plant and animal life to
the natural landscape, nature-based meditation offers many lessons that can
enhance our emotional and physical wellbeing. Join Martin Gagnon, a
certified Meditation and Mindfulness instructor, as he leads a meditation
session on January 13th at 4:30 pm. The session will begin with a brief
lecture on meditation and why it works to reduce stress and increase
calmness. No meditation experience is necessary.  For more information
