Detailed instruction practiced to align, strengthen, and promote flexibility in the body, allowing new students to easily follow the class. Emphasis on linking breath with body movement. Each week we will make a simple, full circuit of the body’s range of motion to bring relaxation, balance and challenge to the body and mind. Both relaxing and revitalizing, a nice way to start the day. Kim is 200 hour certified in Integrative Yoga Therapy.

Wheeler Library brings Mark Starr's Lobstering documentary to our big screen, Wednesday, January 8th at 7pm. Free and open to all. Mark Sweitzer's first job in the fisheries - unloading the day’s catch from vessels returning to Point Judith - was just a temporary way to earn some money while visiting friends after college. Never intending to be a commercial fisherman, some 40 years later he is still at it, fishing his own boat, the Erica Knight. In this film Mark discusses his daily life as a lobsterman and some of the challenges he faces on a daily basis. Filmed in 2017 as part of a larger series for the Library of Congress documenting the commercial fisheries of Point Judith, Rhode Island. Run-time 40 minutes.
Shop at Wheeler Library for local items – ghee, honey, syrup, Tucchio prints, paintings by local artists, and more.
