Amazing local artist, Joseph Wennberg, will guide members through an artistic voyage. Joe hopes to have the members develop a greater appreciation of self and confidence to accomplish what, perhaps, may seem too esoteric. This will be accomplished with the use of canvas, primary colors, two brushes, and a palate knife. With these tools you will begin to apply paint in a random process, although under the control of things on your mind. Halfway through the process, members will stop and reflect on their uncompleted work for a brief discussion before they proceed to completion. Sculpting will be added with palette knife, as well as additional colors and brush work by Joe if necessary. When completed the original art will be signed by creator and then examined under a magnifying glass.

Kripalu (Compassionate) Yoga is an integrated practice that revitalizes the body, calms the mind and deepens self-awareness. Kripalu brings body, mind and spirit into a state of harmony and balance. It allows you to choose the level of physical intensity right for you. Instead of encouraging you to judge your performance today against yesterday, or compare your stretch with that of your classmates, Kripalu Yoga teaches you how to listen to your body and honor its needs. Self observation without judgment is its motto. It encourages compassion for yourself and others. The essence of Kripalu Yoga is learning how to be fully present in the moment-by-moment experience of life. 

Kripalu trained instructor, Judy McClain, will teach this class to all skill levels on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays. Debra Marshall, Certified Yoga instructor, will be teach this class on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays. No previous yoga experience required.
