We play American mahjong with tiles and a structured card which changes annually.

Evidence has shown Dr. Paul Lam’s Tai Chi for Arthritis program helps prevent falls and improves health and the quality of life for older adults. Tai chi movements appear gentle and graceful, but they contain much power and internal strength. This is an excellent opportunity to come and learn more about this exercise. Facilitator Kim Greene will review the basic principles of tai chi and provide a demonstration of its fundamental forms.
Mondays & Fridays, 10:00AM – 11:15AM
Melinda’s yoga classes vary depending on who shows up and what their experience is, and what their expectations are for the day. It is truly a community-centered offering!
Typically, one can expect the practice to include breathing, moving in coordination with breathing, balancing, strengthening and stretching. The classes begin and end with mindfulness and intention and the students “tune in” with mantras and close with a song. Melinda teaches from her experiences with Kundalini, Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yin yoga, and offers and encourages modifications and even chair yoga.
All levels are welcome. Most people leave a $5 contribution for the instructor as she is not paid. Mats are available.
