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:

Jamming High With IPad Technology

Did you know that walking is the most popular form of physical activity in the United States? 10,000 steps per day – about 5 miles – is a great way to walk your way to fitness. Wednesday, April 4th is National Walking Day. Everybody get up and walk for your health. Walk to our library and check out DVDs and books to help you get started! 

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!
