As it is said, laughter is the best medicine. So come and learn about the people who made America laugh in the 20th century including Charlie Chaplin, Laurel & Hardy, the Marx Brothers, Jack Benny, Abbott & Costello, Martin & Lewis as well as others in between. The primary focus will be on exploring their paths to stardom and their downfalls, as well as a sampling of some of their better known routines and scenes via video excerpts. The emphasis will be on the dynamic changes in comedy in the first half of the twentieth century.

T'ai Chi Ch'uan (Grand Ultimate fist) is an ancient system of self-defense and exercise. Practiced at a very slow pace, with control of one's body as the goal, it offers many benefits to those who practice regularly. It improves balance, enhances breathing efficiency, lowers blood pressure, promotes flexibility, decreases heart rate, and improves blood circulation and posture. All the organs in the body are gently massaged while practicing, and the cardiovascular system, the heart and lungs, are especially benefited.

A yoga class especially for older students who are looking for a safe, mindful approach to yoga.  Emphasizing four essential skills – Balance, Strength, Flexibility and Agility – the class is perfect for people new to yoga or students with some experience.  Each class will begin with a reading about how yoga contributes to Healthy Aging.  NOT a chair yoga class!  Students should feel comfortable getting down onto the floor; modifications of the poses will be offered for people with differing abilities.
