Chair Yoga

Chair Yoga

Chair yoga class offers all the benefits of yoga on a mat but without having to get on and off the floor. We will primarily focus on improving flexibility of the spine followed by the rest of the joints and muscles. There will be gentle movements with an emphasis on breath and mindfulness/meditation, improving breathing and overall health, well-being, and ability to focus. This class is great for those with sedentary occupations, limited mobility, recovering from injuries or surgery, or who are just new to yoga and need a safe non-intimidating starting point. The Arthritis Foundation has approved chair yoga to ease the aches and pains of those suffering from arthritis as well as providing many other proven benefits to health and well-being. 

The class is led by Whitney Arvin who will be accredited in the Foundations of Yoga Therapy in June after completion of an extensive teacher training program.  She has been a certified yoga instructor since 2010 and is committed to sharing its benefits whenever possible. 

The class will begin April 18th at 10:30-11:15 in the media room and run for a trial of 4 weeks.  If there is interest the class will continue regularly on the schedule each week- Tuesdays at 10:30.  It is $8/ drop in or $25 for all 4 classes.

Karibu Kenya Dinner

December 2, 2017

Karibu Kenya Dinner

Karibu Kenya (Welcome to Kenya) Annual Fundraiser
December 2nd from 5:30 to 7:30 pm in the Aldersgate Family Life Center

Come to enjoy a delicious authentic Kenyan meal cooked by local Kenyans, an array of African crafts for sale, a silent auction, live entertainment, and for the opportunity to sponsor a Kenyan child in need!        

The goal for the event is to fund our 14th year of work in southwestern Kenya. All of the proceeds this year will go toward one of our projects, an Early Childhood Development program in Dago Village. We offer child sponsorships, which include school fees, uniforms, shoes, 2 hot meals a day, and teachers’ salaries for these preschool children. Through this program they receive a head start before taking the exam that lets them attend the local primary school in Dago village.

Hope to see you and join hands in giving.

RSVP online at aldersgateum.org. Click on GIVE, and pay as a guest. (General donations may also be made in this way.)

For more information about the silent auction or to arrange pick up of your items, please contact Lynn Renne at 812-477-7816 or lynn.renne@aldersgateum.org.
