Cowspiracy – The Sustainability Secret

Fri, August 18, 2017  at 7pm – 9pm

A groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary.

Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution, is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry, and is a primary driver of rainforest destruction.

Fri, August 17th  7 – 9pm
Light refreshments served afterwards

Teaching Mat Yoga with Older Adults & Active Seniors

Sat, September 9, 2017  at 1pm – 4pm

Learn to teach yoga to older adults and seniors.

Cost:  $50

Yoga for older adults & seniors is a fast growing niche market and as teachers we have to be mindful of our students, quickly assessing their abilities and/or limitations. The goal of this workshop is to offer yoga trainers an insight into successfully offering mat yoga classes to this physically diverse demographic.

Our focus will be on mat yoga and all modifications provided in this workshop will be beneficial to those who may need an adapted program, yet are still able to get up and down from the mat.
