Beginning Yoga

June 2 - 30, 2020

10:00 a.m.

Andrea Lepcio continues her free beginning yoga class through the month of June (possibly longer if there is interest.) New participants are welcome!

If you are new to yoga, this is the class for you. At home you will be introduced to yoga poses and breathing practices. Step by step you will learn sun salutations, standing poses, seated poses, balance, back bend and twisted poses.

Andrea will offer modifications for those able to get up and down from the ground and for those who prefer to sit or be supported by a chair. We will go slow and have fun as we become more aware of our bodies.

The class meets Tuesday and Thursday at 10:00 a.m. via Zoom. You do not need to commit to every class meeting.

Twilight in the Wilderness

June 11, 2020

4:00 p.m.

Ann Caswell will examine the iconic Maine landscape painting by Frederic Edwin Church. She will discuss how each element in the composition reveals aspects of the ideological currents of the early 19th century. We will see how this work by Church is connected to the works of  Cole, Emerson, and Thoreau, among others.  In this way, we can explore political, spiritual, economic, artistic, and scientific trends from the era of the New England Renaissance of the 1830s up to the time of the Civil War.

The presentation will be offered via Zoom. It is expected to be about an hour and a half, with a short break in the middle and a few minutes for Q&A at the end.
