STURGEON MOON – This first full moon of August is known as the Sturgeon Moon because this is the time of year when sturgeon are caught in abundance from the Great Lakes of North America. It is also known as the Green Corn Moon, the Red Moon and the Grain Moon.



        Nudes-in-the-Hall: Aerobic Yoga #1
Sunday, August 26th  (12:00 – 1:00 p.m.)

Learn the very refreshing style of Aerobic Yoga that was created by  SzabolcsAtzel-Bethlen (called Saby by his students.)  Yoga alone is not aerobic.  Saby developed a non-impact method for yoga that combines yoga with stretching, breathing and a t’ai chi-like constant motion that improves health against heart disease.   (Heart disease patients who practice yoga in addition to aerobic exercise saw twice the reduction in blood pressure, body mass index and cholesterol levels when compared to patients who practiced either Indian yoga or aerobic exercise alone.)

Lance Borde, who is not a licensed practitioner of Aerobic Yoga, will present the course through the book, video and wall chart program especially designed for the individual at home.
The practice is safe; if you cannot reach a position, do the best you can and move through it to the next position. 

SIMPLICITY OF THE COURSE
One only needs to learn the choreography of three salutations:
the Sun, the Moon, the Earth.
Classes #1 and #2 will be essentially the same – learning the basics and then the easiest of the three salutations.  Class #3 will take on the second salutation, while class #4 takes on the final salutation.)

WHAT TO BRING: A yoga mat or a towel.

Finally, we always collect food for our local food bank.  Please be as generous as you can.  If one can is all you can afford, then please bring that.  BUT if you can afford more, please bring it.  And please, NO GLASS, only cans and boxes.  Our local fire station is always impressed with the car load of food I bring to them after our Thanksgiving dinner.

And when you are out shopping, get those toys for our Toys for Tots drive for our Christmas-Holiday Party on December 9th.
