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.

Books ‘n’ Bites – Wednesday Oct 11,  5:00 – 6:30pm- Fireplace Lounge

Walking Book Club – Friday Oct 13, 11:30  – 12:30 pm (meet in the atrium)

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn was on the New York Times Bestseller list for 130 weeks, and held the number one spot for 37 of those.  Join us this month as we explore the world of North Carthage Missouri and the tangled lives of the Dunne family.

On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are wrapped and reservations are made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy’s diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?

Join us in Books n Bites for discussion and refreshments inspired by the book of the month, or join the Walking Book club to exercise your body as you exercise your literary muscles!
