Visual Art Journaling & Mindfulness with Lindsey Jo Scott
Time
: Wednesdays August 5, 12, 19, 26 @ 6:00pm
Description: This class is an invitation to an unhurried adventure of visual journaling and mindfulness. Through guided writing prompts, drawing, collage, painting, observation-based list-making, and gentle movement, we’ll take time to create, reflect, discover more about ourselves, and practice being present. Each class will include guided calming exercises, writing prompts, and loose art-making instructions with an emphasis on honoring the process over the end product. No need to have any prior art-making or writing experience- just a willingness to experiment, slow down, and have fun!

BalloFlex with Julie Buckeye
Time/Date: August 6, 13, 20, 27 @ 6PM

No code required. Open registration: https://balloflex.eventbrite.com

Description: BalloFlex gives people that do not have the fondness, time or ability for traditional exercise programs and gyms the advantage of feeling better and building confidence. Students learn a series of dance steps while learning how to move with the music, count the beats, and transition into different moves – all while seated.

With each move, students tone, stretch, flex, and strengthen muscles in their upper body, lower body, and abs. The small, consistent and rhythmic “bounce” in the abs while sitting is the cornerstone of the exercise that makes BalloFlex unique while building core strength.

FUNdamentals of Storytelling: The power of storytelling
Time/Date: August 13, 20, 27 & September 3 @ 7:00pm
Description: Storytelling is much more than entertainment. Harnessing and controlling our own narratives can be a source of healing and well-being. Understanding our journeys through stories can bring about internal and external change. Working with Wandering Aesthetics’ Education Director Kyle Jozsa, and Artistic Director Benjamin Rexroad, participants will explore the basics of discovering and crafting their very own story.
