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.

Memorial Day Colloquy: Legacy and Ethical Wills: Life on Purpose
May 24 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
Memorial Day Colloquy: Legacy and Ethical Wills: Life on Purpose

Come join us for a colloquy. Our Memorial Day Colloquy focuses on the notion of an ethical will- of ways to pass on to family, friends, and community our legacy of values and wisdom. Legacy is more than what we leave behind. It is how we live our lives as we wish to be remembered.
An ethical will is not a legal document; it does not distribute your material wealth. It is a heartfelt expression of what truly matters most in your life. Think about what values and lessons you would want to pass on were you to write an ethical will. This colloquy invites us to gather in a virtual circle– share with and listen to one another in a program laced with music, meditation, poetry, and reflection.
