REDBUD YOGA featured on WGEM News for an article about Pregnant Women & Exercise.
Many thanks to Stacy Smith from WGEM television news for her willingness to share our enthusiasm for Iyengar yoga and its benefits during pregnancy -- and to our students for being willing to share their own experience with yoga and to be filmed this past Monday evening in our 6:00 class. Stacy's story about exercise and pregnancy aired on February 21.
Redbud Yoga's Carol Nichols is quite proud of her eldest child, Dan, a faculty member at the Northern Illinois University School of Music, for his winning a Grammy Award on February 12. He earned the award by serving as the recording engineer for the Third Coast Percussion's Steve Reich album. That album won the Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble award. Congratulations to Dan AND to his parents, Carol & Alan, for giving Dan such a solid foundation! And perhaps even more important in that family was the November 12 arrival of Dan & Christine's first child, Ridley Jean, who recently experienced her first snowfall!
Around 8:30 a.m on Mondays, Jan is speaking with talk show host Greg Harley about meditation and its benefits. We also include a brief meditative reading and/or a guided meditation -- choose to transform your "manic Monday" into a "meditative Monday!" And please thank WGEM for their willingness to contribute to our community's wellness!
For each new exhibit at the Quincy Art Center, 1515 Jersey, Jan will be leading a guided meditation class to honor the artists and their works.
Free for art center members and $8 for non-members, these classes usually include both novice and experienced meditation practitioners. Jan uses materials from a variety of traditions. Meditation can be a spiritual practice but is not necessarily a religious one -- and spirituality belongs to all of us.
