Do you need help keeping up with your list of New Year’s Resolutions? Are you thinking about getting healthier and more stress-free for the 2008 year? Come join us for some group support!

We are very happy to announce the return of Yoga Instructor Marietta McEvilly. On Tuesday, January 22nd at 11:00 a.m. in the Auditorium of the 91 Henderson Main Site we will have a FREE YOGA CLASS open to any family member of the PS 373 student population.

Just wear some comfy clothing and be prepared for a beginner’s class on how to release some of that tension in your neck and back and hips. Feeling stressed? Learn some techniques to release all that tension and bring more balance to yourself. We will provide the mats for you.

“Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance and order and rhythm and harmony” – Thomas Merton
