Intro to Yin/Yang Yoga

Yin/Yang yoga blends two styles of yoga into one practice, balancing the benefits of passively holding yoga poses for periods of time with the more active sequences and standing postures of gentle hatha yoga.

Yin poses are quietly held in comfortable positions to target connective tissues, ligaments, fascia and complement the Yang poses that focus on muscle engagement and movement. The complement of each style in one practice can improve energy and flexibility while developing stability and comfort.

Session will conclude with a guided relaxation. Participants should dress comfortably, bring a yoga mat, and be in reasonably good health. No prior yoga experience is required.

Teacher Kimberly LaMendola is certified by the Himalayan Institute and registered with Yoga Alliance.

I Rejoice in October and Every Month That My Mother Survived Breast Cancer

October is one of my favorite months.

It’s the beginning of basketball and hockey seasons, the increasing climax of football season and the end of baseball season. It’s a time when we start to break out the hoodies once reserved for summer bonfires, jeans last used in the winter, and can, without judgment, begin to hold on to the warmth of coffee or hot chocolate.

But, more ...

On the first day of her freshman year at St. Bonaventure University in 1989, members of the Army ROTC Seneca Battalion helped incoming freshmen move their stuff into their dorm rooms.  Afterward, they invited all of the freshmen to a lunch.
