Level 2 programs are for those who want to focus on a more advanced fitness regimen. These exercises are done from a standing position or while lying on the floor or mat. These activities are minimally modified and you must be able to move from a standing position to the floor or mat independently.

Our wellness programs are a 22 to 24-week format, and incorporate a holistic approach to promote wellness of mind, body and spirit. Classes will employ similar modalities of movement like yoga, Pilates and aerobic exercise. Guest classes on Reiki, stress management, tai chi and other subjects will provide an enhanced, comprehensive experience for all participants. All classes are designed to tone and strengthen muscles, with a focus on strength and cardiovascular fitness. Light weights and exercise bands are often used.

<![CDATA[Arts, Culture & Fun; New Horizons; Exploring Pluto]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/12/15/arts-culture-fun-new-horizons-exploring-pluto http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/12/15/arts-culture-fun-new-horizons-exploring-pluto Date: December 15, 2014

The New Horizons spacecraft has been on its way to Pluto since 2006, and will be making its closest approach to the former planet in just 9 short months. Before it gets there, come listen to a talk by Jaclyn Avidon, Chair of the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York’s Education
and Educational Outreach Committees, as she explains all you need to know about Pluto –everything from what we currently know about the
dwarf planet, to why it lost its planetary status. After the talk, telescopes will be set up for observing on the rooftop (weather permitting).
Guests are welcome to bring their own binoculars and telescopes and set them up alongside the experts.

About the AAA: The Amateur Astronomers Association of New York was organized in 1927 to promote the study of Astronomy, emphasizing its cultural and inspirational value. The AAA holds observing and educational events throughout the 5 boroughs, and beyond. Visit aaa.org to find out more and check out their calendar of upcoming events!

Level 2 programs are for those who want to focus on a more advanced fitness regimen. These exercises are done from a standing position or while lying on the floor or mat. These activities are minimally modified and you must be able to move from a standing position to the floor or mat independently.

Our wellness programs are a 22 to 24-week format, and incorporate a holistic approach to promote wellness of mind, body and spirit. Classes will employ similar modalities of movement like yoga, Pilates and aerobic exercise. Guest classes on Reiki, stress management, tai chi and other subjects will provide an enhanced, comprehensive experience for all participants. All classes are designed to tone and strengthen muscles, with a focus on strength and cardiovascular fitness. Light weights and exercise bands are often used.

Level 2 programs are for those who want to focus on a more advanced fitness regimen. These exercises are done from a standing position or while lying on the floor or mat. These activities are minimally modified and you must be able to move from a standing position to the floor or mat independently.

Our wellness programs are a 22 to 24-week format, and incorporate a holistic approach to promote wellness of mind, body and spirit. Classes will employ similar modalities of movement like yoga, Pilates and aerobic exercise. Guest classes on Reiki, stress management, tai chi and other subjects will provide an enhanced, comprehensive experience for all participants. All classes are designed to tone and strengthen muscles, with a focus on strength and cardiovascular fitness. Light weights and exercise bands are often used.
