Whether you are planting, digging, or weeding, your body needs to stay strong and mobile to prevent injuries. Join this 5-week series that will prepare your body for gardening season and make you feel your best! This no-impact practice will help your flexibility, range of motion, and improve posture by gently strengthening and stretching all your muscles and joints. This series is suitable for all levels.
We all have stories to tell, stories about our life experiences, stories about our friends or stories about our families. Our stories define us. Through the Greater Madison Writing Project’s “Writing Your Life” workshop series, we will help you find the stories you want to tell and give you strategies to help you craft them into stories you will want to share. Join us to learn how to incorporate different writing strategies like descriptive writing, sense of place, capturing someone’s unique character and personality, using dialogue in meaningful ways, exploring story arcs, developing focus and flow and finding the best beginnings and meaningful endings to the stories.
The ancient art of bonsai is an exercise in patience, time, and artistry. We will abbreviate the process by turning a container-grown nursery juniper into a living sculpture over the course of this class, with hands-on work on your very own tree. Bring a shallow 6-10” pot (or we’ll provide a plastic one) to take your tree home in, and gloves since juniper is prickly.
“Move like a great river; be still like a mountain” instructs the age-old description of the meditative exercise and movement art of T’ai Chi Ch’uan. This class offers standing movements and seated practices rooted within the Chinese tradition of Tai Chi and Chi Kung for the enrichment of body, mind and spirit. All physical abilities welcome, including those in need of chair-based practice.
