Fall/Winter Rambles for Seniors and other Free Spirits

$5

with Sam Horine

Calendar Jan 14, 2020 at 4:30 pm

Walking is a good exercise; it promotes good conversations with fellow walkers and the opportunity to observe one's surroundings. So, for those with some free time, I'm organizing a couple of “rambles” a month - starting in September and ending in March. Most 'rambles' will be in rural areas with a few in urban settings. All will be within a 40 miles radius of Skowhegan. While most 'rambles' will take place in the afternoon, some will start earlier in the day. At times, we may want to carpool to a starting point. Good walking shoes, warm comfortable clothing, in winter - snowshoes and or ice creepers, and the yen to explore are the only essential elements needed.

First Meeting will be held at SAHS at 4:30pm on October 8, 2019

Every second and fourth of each Month

“Qi” means energy and “Gong” means practice. Learn to circulate the energy in specific channels called meridians, using movement and breathing techniques. When the energy flow freely you feel vitality, health, and happiness.

Pilates

$30

with Petra Prokopova

Calendar Feb 26, 2020 at 5:30 pm, runs for 10 weeks

Pilates is the Western and modern mind-boby movement exercise method related to the Eastern and ancient tradition of yoga. Pilates emphasizes spinal health and teaches rolling/stacking movement of the spine. It promotes core muscle stability aiding greatly in the prevention of back injuries and each pilates workout provides full-range motion exercises to build full mobility of the joints. In a pilates workout, you get to hold a pose in the setup of an excercise for a few seconds and then you move in a flow for a few repetitions.

Please bring a thick exercise/yoga mat for adequate cushioning of the spine or other tender points.

 

Some individuals may need other supporting props; I will assess the need during the first class.
