NHLH 116C - New Beginners Yoga

This five-week course will utilize the science of Yoga, incorporating breath, gentle stretching, strengthening, deep relaxation, affirmation and meditation as a tool to experience a heightened sense of well being in and out of class. We are what we have always imagined ourselves to be. The imagination has been limited or conditioned by a culture which sees itself as, at best, minimally well or happy. We must outgrow the cultural conditionings that discourage our continual growth and expand our range of motion, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We will explore the myths of aging which prevent our becoming more expansive. We will look at our life-style choices, modify or expand them. We will look at changing diet to accommodate our new bodies. We will reaffirm ourselves as dynamic beings. The needs of each student will be acknowledged. Dress comfortably, bring a mat and a positive outlook.

The word 'church' has come to be used as the building in which the church meets. These buildings help us to understand something of the motive of the original builders, the way the building has been used, and the beliefs it expresses. Through the years, in many American communities like Wellington, the church has been not only the religious foundation of the community but it also services many of the community's social needs and concerns. In this virtual tour, we will explore different churches of Wellington and its surrounding rural townships. Exploring churches is a pastime of the presenter, David Simmer, of Lorain County Landmarks.
