Seniors News Flash

Hey Fillmore! In case you hadn’t noticed, there are exciting new happenings at the Fillmore Senior Center. Starting in February, you can take a meditation and/or yoga class in the evening! Come on over and decrease stress while increasing your health and well-being! These two classes are available to adults of all ages, no experience necessary.

Classes begin Thursday, February 4 at 5:30 p.m. Meditation, taught by Valerie Brinton is from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.; then yoga, taught by Janine Rees, is from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. They will continue on Thursdays throughout the year. Also, the morning meditation class will now be offered on Thursday mornings from 8:00 to 9:00 prior to the Thursday morning yoga class.

Valerie has taught Taoist Meditation for over 20 years. This approach is simple and gentle. The benefits include reduced conflict and tension, with an increase in resilience, calm focus, self-esteem, and vitality.

Janine has taught Iyengar for fifteen years. This type of yoga emphasizes correct alignment and proper breathing coordinated with gentle stretching as well as strength and balance building. All levels of ability are welcome to attend these hour-long class. Each class is a $2.00 donation, only.

We welcome all you stressed, weary, stiff folks out there who work out of town and can’t get to the center for daytime classes. Now there are classes for you too! Plus, new classes are being added all the time so check your Gazette regularly for updated schedules. See you there.
