You only get one you so treat yourself right! This class will combine a series of simple stretches, self-massage, restorative yoga poses, and optional aromatherapy designed to battle the physical pains and mental stress that can build up in our daily lives.
Inspired by the increase in sedentary activities that have become a larger part of our lives due to the pandemic, this class will give focus to alleviating common strains or tension that develop from excessive sitting and screen time. Gift yourself a moment of relief by quieting the mind and creating room for relaxation.
This is a 101 level class so most anyone can attend. Participation is welcomed but not required. Attendees should only do activities they feel physically comfortable with & do so at their own risk.
If you have yoga equipment please bring a mat, bolster, strap, & 2 bricks (more if you like). If not please try to have 3-6 pillows or couch cushions, a selection of towels and or blankets, and a clean and comfortable place to lay on the floor. This class is a great way to start the day and an even better way to end it.
Notes to Parents: This class is not geared to children but children ages 6-12 may attend with parent supervision and kids under 6 free with parent supervision
Bigfoot, Nessy & Other Real Creatures: Constructing a Multipart Shadow Puppet
Make a shadow puppet of your favorite cryptozoological creature. Participants will learn to make a jointed puppet constructed for easy & fluid movement.
Don’t rely on grainy, out of focus, photos to prove what you saw in the wilderness. Show people what’s what with a shadow puppet of that mythical monster. I’m sorry, I mean that very real animal you know exists. This class will teach participants how to construct a durable, multi-part puppet that exhibits smooth, deliberate, & engaging movement.
Students will be provided a PDF pattern & materials list. Everything you need can be found at a craft/office supply store or on amazon. You probably have most of it already at home. The class will be recorded & video made available to participants, so if you don’t have everything you need you can make it later.
