Vail Public Library’s annual Healthy Lifestyle Series, an extension of our “Evenings of Engagement,” features programs that focus on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Programs include healthy habits for both mind and body. While most programs take place during the summer, we do offer Yoga through out the year.
Gentle Yoga – Monday’s & Wednesday’s at 11:30am
This may be the yoga class you’re looking for. Here we cultivate compassion for ourselves and others. Though it’s a gentle workout, the emphasis is on working in. This inward focus unites the mind, body & Spirit in an atmosphere of community and collaboration, not competition. Balance, strength and flexibility improve while experiencing deep relaxation. You’ll feel a lightness of being from this powerful and healing practice. Taught by Anne Anderson, Certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher, Registered with Yoga Alliance, Professional Ski Instructor of America at Vail; Lionshead Adults, Reiki II Practitioner and Founder of Snowga, a yoga practice on the slopes created to calm the mind and transform the ski experience; less fear, more fun.
Maria Barry will teach a four week Introduction to Country Western Dance. This will include the Basics of the popular Two Step, Double Two and Cowboy Cha Cha. So pull out your cowboy boots and scoot down to Vail Library on Monday nights, June 5 – 26, at 5:30. Come as a single or couple.
Presented by Stacey Horn, temperament Consultant, Mentor, and Hypnotist. As a Holistic Practitioner, Stacey takes every opportunity to teach people about the use of Hypnosis for supporting Health and the Mind – Body connection. This presentation will explain what Hypnosis is, and is not, and how Hypnosis helps ordinary everyday people with ordinary everyday problems! This Program is part of our Healthy Lifestyle Series.
