MERIDIAN — New yoga classes
Beginning March 17, Rene Weiler will lead a Beginning Yoga class that will last for four weeks — and hopefully be accepted as a regular class, if we generate enough interest. This will start on Mondays and Wednesdays at 10:45 a.m.. It will be primarily a stretching class and will cost nothing.
On Tuesdays at 10 a.m., Pat Wilson will lead a Chair Yoga class for those who might be uneasy about getting up and down from the floor. She will incorporate some of the regular yoga moves, but use a chair for support until you develop the strength to balance without the need of a chair. Again, this will be only four classes until we see how well it is received.
We hope these classes will allow students to try something new that can be developed over time. Yoga is simply a process, no competition is involved aside from you and your body, what your body will allow you to do. It takes time to re-train your muscles and we do not want anyone to be hurt attempting poses too difficult. Wear comfortable clothing; bring a towel.
Spring classes begin March 17
If you have not registered by now, you might have difficulty getting into your regular class.
We are getting a lot of new students coming by to register. Remember, if you are a Zumba student taking classes with Janie Howard Monday through Thursday at 4:30 p.m., pay $20 up front and you get 50 percent more classes than if you pay $2 each day. And it’s a great workout .... and fun!
We are offering computer classes in Windows 7 and Windows 8 several times a week. The classes are small and inexpensive. Word Processing is also being taught, as well as iPad and iPhone. We did offer Kindle classes ,but had little response. We are still looking for someone willing to teach eBay classes on a Friday afternoon.
