Specialty Classes

The Activities Department is excited to introduce another 6-week session of a new Tai Chi class taught by Gordon Fair. Tai Chi Chuan dates back to 780 AD in mainland China. Originally used by Tao monks as a method of defense to marauding warriors, it has transitioned over the centuries to become an exercise made up of 60 individual movements. The entire “kata” takes about 15 minutes to complete (when learned) and helps to improve breathing, circulation, muscular strength, lower stress and promote better balance.

Classes will be held on Wednesdays at the Spring Lake Pavilion from 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM. The 6-week session will run March 3 through April 7, and the cost is only $40/person for the entire session.

The Activities Department will be offering a new 6-week session of Yoga Nidra beginning Wednesday, February 17, continuing through Wednesday, March 24. Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of inducing complete mental, physical and emotional relaxation. It is the practice of letting go of external stimulation of the senses, moving into a dreamless state of rest where consciousness is functioning at a deeper level of awareness. During a session of Yoga Nidra, the participant lays comfortably on a mat, using props to facilitate complete relaxation. The instructor, Mary Montour, will move through a series of instructions to guide you to systematically relax and let go of the physical body and senses. Vocal cues are given through the practice to guide you in your breathing and natural mental fluctuations.

The cost is $40/person, and you must sign up for the entire session. Classes will be held upstairs at the Spring Lake Pavilion on Wednesdays from 4:00-5:00 PM. No Yoga experience is required.

The Activities Department is excited to introduce a 6-week session of a new yoga class for 2021 taught by Mary Montour. The class will follow the tradition of Hatha yoga. Hatha yoga combines a gentle asana (posture) practice that emphasizes core strength, flexibility, balance, concentration, and breath control. Mary feels alignment is key to staying safe and getting the maximum benefit from the poses. Mindful, slow flow coupled with the breath and longer holds complement the active alignment cues. Props will be utilized to help with alignment so students of all abilities can participate. Restorative poses and meditation close out of the class. This class is suitable for students who are newer to yoga and experienced students interested in a lower intensity flow and refinement of alignment. Classes will be held on Wednesdays at the Spring Lake Pavilion from 2:30 – 3:30 PM. The session will run from January 20 through February 24, and the cost is only $40/person for the entire session.
