Yoga is Back!

Yoga took a break early this month due to our Volunteer Fair.  It is back this weekend though!  Join us on Saturday at 3 PM for our next yoga class.  Yoga can be a very relaxing and centering exercise program.  Come as we learn about the benefits and basic how-to of yoga.  We would love to see you this Saturday as we exercise our minds and bodies.  Pre-registration is recommended.  Click here to register.

New Year's Resolution?

What was your New Year's resolution?  Did you resolve to get healthy? Exercise more?  Learn relaxation techniques?  In that case, Maud Marks Library would love to help you meet those goals.

After a (very) short break, yoga is back at the Maud Marks Library.  We will be starting back tomorrow at 10 AM with our beginner yoga class.  The class is held the first Saturday of every month at 10 AM and the third Saturday of every month at 3 PM.  You can join up at any time but registration is required.  There are only a few spots left for this Saturday so click here to register.

Non-Traditional Sports

If you're a sports person, it's likely you've played some basketball, baseball, and football over the years. They are classics but they can sometimes get old too. Why not mix things up by trying something a little different? How about archery or rugby or speed skating?

Grab a few friends and start a new sporting tradition:

New Year, New You

exerciseIt’s a new year: A time for new beginnings, big changes and the traditional New Year’s resolutions. The most common resolutions often involve creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Whether your goal is to get moving, lose weight, improve your health or enhance your quality of life, staying active is the key to success. But if you’re like me and find visiting the gym a time-consuming and slightly onerous experience, sticking to a work-out routine seems intimidating. Fortunately, there are DVD’s available for at-home use that cover nearly every form of exercise out there. From walking and dancing, to pilates and yoga, and everything in between, there is a DVD workout to suit almost anyone.

If you’re looking for a new workout, browse the HCPL catalog and request a DVD today!

From Your Couch to a 5K, Really!

woman joggerI don't know about you all, but I'm a couch potato, and I like running about as much as I like getting a root canal.  I might even go as far as saying I loathe it.  I often joke that the only time I will voluntarily run is if I'm being chased by an ax-wielding maniac.  I've tried running before, but the shin splints I get are indescribably painful.  As much as I detest it though, running/jogging is still one of the best ways to lose weight and get in shape.  So, it's time for me to get past the loathing, pain, whining, complaining, pain, excuses, pain, did I mention pain?, and get off the couch.
