Lagan, Constance Become an Optimist and Change Your Life Forever Health & Fitness- Other,
Life Skills- Other
Optimistic people are more likely to be physically healthy, mentally alert, emotionally grounded, and spiritually connected than are pessimistic people. They tend to have more stable relationships over time and more career success. Although genetics and early childhood environment do play a role in whether optimism comes easily, optimistic thinking and behavior can be learned. Motivational speaker Constance Hallinan Lagan opens the window on optimistic thinking for those who have yet to experience the joy of a life lived positively and encourages those who are already actively attempting to “stamp out” negativity to continue their quest. Topics include affirmative thinking, gratitude, forgiveness, prioritizing happiness, sharing, present-moment living, and positive learning. The seminar concludes with a guided visualization meditation.

Paul, LoriAnn CHAIR YOGA for SENIORS with LoriAnn Paul, Certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher Health & Fitness- Sports,
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”.
