An Anti-Gravity Yoga class will be offered on Nov. 14 from 2-3:30 p.m.
Taught by Nettie Joseph, a former international lawyer and a published author who has practiced yoga for years and is a certified Anti-Gravity instructor, the class covers two types of anti-gravity yoga - one using the Harrison Hammock that teaches the fundamental movements designed to decompress the spine and align the body from head to toe, and the other Anti-Gravity Restorative, which is the gentle, healing side of the discipline that takes the body through a series of motions designed to stimulate spinal traction.
It will be taught at Lizard Dreaming Yoga, 733 Brehmer Lane, Units 1 and 2, in Fredericksburg.
A class titled “You know You’re in Trouble When the Buzzards Start Circling” will help students sift their way through the conflicting reports and recommendations concerning the best ways to achieve good health.
It will be taught by Dr. Michael Dennis, a retired family practitioner who teaches anatomy and physiology at Central Texas College in Fredericksburg.
Dennis will strive to provide a more individualized way for students to achieve good health.
The class is scheduled for Nov. 19 from 2-3:30 p.m. at the Texas Tech Higher Education Teaching Site in Fredericksburg, 2818 E. Highway 290.
On Dec. 4, a class titled “Deck the Halls with OLLI: The Stories Behind Our Favorite Christmas Songs” will be offered from 2-4 p.m. at the Texas Tech Teaching Site on Highway 290 in Fredericksburg.
OLLI member and retired Lubbock Independent School District educator Larry Hess will teach the class, which will provide the back stories for some of our favorite and familiar Christmas carols and holiday songs. Holiday refreshments will be available.
The fee for all the classes is $15 for OLLI members and $30 for non-members.
