Gentle Chair Yoga

Yoga for Every Body!  If you are new to yoga -- chair yoga is a great way to start!  It is safe, fun, and there’s no downside to using chairs for fitness.

Non-fit people or folks a little disconnected from their bodies can give themselves permission to try something as non-threatening as moving while sitting in a chair.

Fit people can still ‘feel good’ from discovering the deeper breathing connected to the slower movement.  

You are only one yoga class away from a good mood!  

Marina started practicing yoga in 1995, and for the past seven years has taught locally.  Marina also offers Gentle Yoga every Monday and Wednesday at 11:00 am.  Chairs are provided.

Questions about Gentle Chair Yoga please contact instructor, Marina Kachur, at 480-510-6572 or yokama14@gmail.com.

Cost: $10 cash, paid to instructor at each class

Literate Foodie Club

Literate Foodies has been meeting since March 2016.  They focus each meeting on a book and topic for discussion and a rotating team of cooks prepare related recipes for a sampling by all attendants.  Each month could feature chef memoirs, food travel, food history, national and international cuisines, techniques, and cookbooks! 

We have a rotating panel of members who participate in presentations; each from unique backgrounds but all share a love of food, reading, and learning.  Dana and Jan are retired professionals who facilitate the program by planning and bringing a love of food and ideas to our very social group.
