Erin Coltvet, Eastern Area Agency on Aging, discussed the “mind-body” connection and it’s various forms. It can be obvious, such as Yoga (which encourages you to be present at that moment with your body). We have chair yoga Monday and Wednesday at 10am and Gentle Yoga (mat based) Mondays at 1:30pm. ANOTHER way to experience “mind-body” connections is thru meditation or art class. We are offering Art with Ease Wednesdays at 1:30pm starting March 30th. This class features thoughtful art instruction in a safe, supportive environment. Participants with memory loss and/or their caregivers are welcome. NO experience necessary, just a desire to connect with your CREATIVE side. $32/6 weeks plus $20 for materials at the first class.
