Accessible Yoga

A class designed for seniors and those with limited mobility but anyone will benefit from this hour. You won’t need a mat, only a sturdy chair. You will learn simple but effective meditation and breathing techniques that you can do at home to reduce anxiety and breathe more freely. You will also be guided through gentle movements to release tension in the muscles supporting the spine and shoulders as well as some balance and strengthening exercises using the support of the chair for safety and stability. Everything in this class is optional so you can do as little or as much as you like. You will leave breathing easier and feeling calmer and more at home in your body. Yoga can help to reduce depression, increase oxygenation and circulation in the body and improve sleep. No prior experience is needed. All ages and abilities are welcome.

Hack the Senate
Nov 8 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
Hack the Senate

The unrepresentative nature at the federal level of the US Government is well known. Created in the Eighteenth Century, the US Constitution vests an inordinate amount of power in the US Senate—a place where the vote of one person from Wyoming has the same weight as 70 people from California. A solution that to this undemocratic arrangement, that also dramatically alters the Electoral College, was created by the Coalition to Hack the Senate. Their solution, unlike others in the mainstream, does not require a constitutional amendment. Dwight Panozzo, the founder of the Coalition will speak to us about the Coalition’s idea. More information about the Coalition and their proposal can be found at hackthesenate.org.

Dwight Panozzo, PhD, LCSW is an adjunct assistant professor of social work at New York University and a clinician in private practice. His social justice work began with gun violence prevention protesting after the Sandy Hook massacre. It included work with the Brady campaign and Gays Against Guns. A problem solver by nature, Dwight recognized that nothing was being achieved at the federal level to stem gun violence and, in particular, the US Senate was the stumbling block. This led him to conceptualize the Amalgamation and New State Formation Process which lies at the heart of the Hack the Senate movement.
