Paul, LoriAnn CHAIR YOGA for SENIORS with LoriAnn Paul, Certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher Health & Fitness- Sports,
Health & Fitness- Other,
Life Skills- Other
I was first introduced to the powerful healing art of Yoga 25 years ago, and I desire to share my expertise and passion with you! My Chair Yoga classes for seniors incorporate gentle stretching and modified Yoga postures, adapted to suit the particular needs of each student. The Yoga warm-ups and postures that I teach are designed to gently stretch, tone and strengthen the body, while simultaneously helping to preserve range of motion. Furthermore, regular Yoga practice can be quite effective in helping to relieve the painful symptoms of physical ailments such as Arthritis, which may otherwise compromise one’s quality of life. Students also learn ancient Yoga breathing exercises, which help to strengthen the lungs, heighten mental clarity, calm the nervous system, and improve sleeping patterns among other things. I encourage my students to respect their bodies while exercising, and teach many different variations and modifications of each warm-up and posture, taking into account any special needs they may have. Each class ends with a unique and beautifully relaxing meditation, which varies from one class to another, and which one student sweetly referred to as “the icing on the cake”.

Gifford, Terrie Set Yourself Free with Improv Life Skills- Other,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Performing Arts- Theater
Improv is a great way to discover those interesting characters just waiting to come alive when you have some encouragement from a director. Taking an improv class also allows you some time to practice an accent you've been wanting to try or maybe you just want to get comfortable talking to a group with no script in front of you. No matter what your goal, you will have fun learning to think on your feet and be in the moment. Anyone can do improv with some basic instruction. Participants act out scenes that are made up on the spot. Often the result is comedic.
