Sitting Priti - Chair Yoga

Date:

Age Group: 
Adult

Chair Yoga is what it sounds like - yoga done on a chair.  The chair becomes an extension of the body, allowing for more stability and support.  This added support allows the student the opportunity to practice poses with proper alignment that might otherwise be difficult, particularly for those new to yoga or with weight, physical or emotional challenges.  The addition of meditation and relaxation practice creates the perfect connection of the mind and spirit to the body and creates the experience of a full yoga practice.

In the early morning hours of June 6, 1944, a small detachment of British airborne troops stormed the German defense forces and paved the way for the Allied invasion of Europe. Pegasus Bridge was the first engagement of D-Day, the turning point of World War II. This gripping account of it by acclaimed author Stephen Ambrose brings to life a daring mission so crucial that, had it been unsuccessful, the entire Normandy invasion might have failed.

For John Chatterton and Richie Kohler, deep wreck diving was more than a sport. Testing themselves against treacherous currents, braving depths that induced hallucinatory effects, navigating through wreckage as perilous as a minefield, they pushed themselves to their limits and beyond, brushing against death more than once in the rusting hulks of sunken ships.

In evocative, immediate descriptions, Hillenbrand unfurls the story of Louie Zamperini--a juvenile delinquent-turned-Olympic runner-turned-Army hero. During a routine search mission over the Pacific, Louie’s plane crashed into the ocean, and what happened to him over the next three years of his life is a story that will keep you glued to the pages, eagerly awaiting the next turn in the story and fearing it at the same time. --Amazon

Tuesday Evening Book Club: "Tess of the D'Urbervilles"

Date: 
Tue, 02/05/2013 - 6:30pm - 7:45pm
Age Group: 
Adult

Enrollment is limited to Warwick cardholders.


Etched against the background of a dying rural society, Tess of the d'Urbervilles was Thomas Hardy's 'bestseller,' and Tess Durbeyfield remains his most striking and tragic heroine. Of all the characters he created, she meant the most to him. Hopelessly torn between two men—Alec d'Urberville, a wealthy, dissolute young man who seduces her in a lonely wood, and Angel Clare, her provincial, moralistic, and unforgiving husband—Tess escapes from her vise of passion through a horrible, desperate act.
