*NEW CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Gentle Flow & More Yoga

A “flow” style yoga class for beginners. Instructor, Lisa, will teach the fundamentals of the flow style yoga and pose transition.

Puppet Making Class

Design and create a glove puppet with Allison from Very Happy Toys.  In this class we will use papier mache to make the puppet head and learn basic sewing skills to make the body.  Materials included. Please bring a shirt that can get messy. Ages 10-adult.      

Yinyasa Yoga

Yin yoga for flexibility, mindfulness and relaxation. Vinyasa yoga for strength, fitness and flow. Each class will include dynamic active sequences for the muscles, blood and skin, as well as static passive poses for the joints, bones and connective tissues. By bringing both Yin and Yang aspects in each class we can experience the benefits of both styles of yoga. Beginning your yoga practice with Yin can help clear the mind before bringing your attention to the body during Vinyasa. Ending your yoga practice with Yin can help calm the nervous system and release tension in preparation for Savasana. This class is accessible to beginners as well as experienced yogis. We can all benefit from finding some balance.

Yinyasa instructor, Natasha Just, is a fresh new yoga teacher with certification in YogaFit Level 1 and Prenatal training.

 

HST Quilting

Do you have some sewing experience and want to learn to quilt but don’t know how to begin? Are you a quilter who’s interested in learning new techniques? This class is suitable for beginners because no quilting experience is required. However, quilters of any experience level can benefit from learning new techniques. This class will cover all aspects of the quilting process, from fabric choices to quilt block assembly, top stitching, and binding. In the first 3 weeks, we will explore several half square triangle (HST) methods and variations. These techniques are used to create quilt blocks that look complicated but are actually very easy. You will provide your own sewing machine in good working condition, equipped with white or grey thread. Some practice materials will be provided. In the last 3 weeks, you will use these techniques to create your own quilted project. You will provide the materials for your project (that way you can choose fabrics that you love). At the end of this class, you will take home a completed quilted project and will have gained general quilting knowledge to apply to future projects.
