Health & Fitness- Other,
Life Skills- Other
I was first introduced to the powerful healing art of Yoga more than 35 years ago, and I desire to share my expertise and passion with you! My Chair Yoga classes for seniors incorporate gentle stretching and modified Yoga postures, adapted to suit the particular needs of each student. The Yoga warm-ups and postures that I teach are designed to gently stretch, tone and strengthen the body, while simultaneously helping to preserve range of motion. Furthermore, regular Yoga practice can be quite effective in helping to relieve the painful symptoms of physical ailments such as Arthritis, which may otherwise compromise one’s quality of life. Students also learn ancient Yoga breathing exercises, which help to strengthen the lungs, heighten mental clarity, calm the nervous system, and improve sleeping patterns among other things. I encourage my students to respect their bodies while exercising, and teach many different variations and modifications of each warm-up and posture, taking into account any special needs they may have. Each class ends with a unique and beautifully relaxing meditation, which varies from one class to another, and which one student sweetly referred to as “the icing on the cake”.

Herscovitch, Lara Workshop - Wingspan: Building Creative Confidence and Courage Life Skills- Other,
Music,
Other
(Women & Wingspan: same workshop with female-only participants) To be human is to be creative. Even so, many of us have trouble connecting to, nurturing and prioritizing our creativity. In this engaging, interactive, values-centered workshop, participants will learn strategies to connect to their internal compass and harness their innate wisdom, patience and tolerance for taking creative risks. Through individual writing and reflection, individual and group exercises, live and recorded music, and group discussion, we will cover: debunking the myths of process and perfection; sources of inspiration; embracing fear and the vulnerability of creative connection; letting comparison be inspiring instead of toxic; identifying and overcoming stumbling blocks; letting go of achievement-driven art and embracing intrinsic, soulful expression regardless of outcome; connecting one’s art to purpose; and allowing one’s unique perspective and voice to shine. No matter from which creative arena – painting, drawing, pottery, poetry, photography, music and beyond – each participant will have protected time and space to re-discover and re-commit to expressing their creative core.

The Songs to Start a Fire “Magic Circle” Workshop brings the participants together in a circle to co-create an atmosphere of safety, healing, and possibility. Today we are faced with constant messages about how to act, feel, and look. The songs and exercises in this workshop put the power back where it belongs: in our own hearts and minds. Inside the circle, participants find the safety and support they need to give voice to their fears and struggles. As we share and sing with the group, we begin to break down the walls of isolation and self-doubt. Through positivity, honesty and raised voices, participants find the compassion to befriend themselves, and the courage to become their own hero.
