Wellness is the result of personal initiative, seeking a more optimal, holistic and balanced state of well-being across five dimensions.  This class is designed to empower the Baby Boomer to move forward with greater wellness and well-being by creating a holistic experience that nourishes each dimension. Historical yoga postures are evolved through application of current evidence-based knowledge to design a safe, effective and enjoyable practice.  A slow, gentle and mindful approach is utilized with a focus on the physcial breath and postures to calm the mind, balance the body, and cultivate self-awareness. 
The practice guides students through:
* Simple techniques to reestablish a healthy, diaphragmatic breath
* Slow, gentle preparatory movements (mat level, not standing) that open the major joints and muscles of the body and maintain a moment by moment awareness as they are synchronized with the breath
* Gentle postures that promote a healthy spine and improve posture, balance, and breathing
* Postures that gently strengthen muscles and promote functional range of motion of the joints, creating a balance of strength and flexibility
*Mediation to rest in the stillness of Being, and find peace within

This is a year of gratitude at CFA . As a part of this exploration of Gratitude we are creating a Wall of Gratitude at CFA, made of of 4x4 squares created by members of the community. To facilitate the expression of gratitude through art we are holding a series of workshops to teach new skills with which to express your gratitude.

This workshop, the second in our series, teaches the basic skills of needle felting. Needle felting is use to both create three dimensional small sculptures and flat textured paintings. We will be focusing on the process of painting with wool using needle felting. Using dyed wool roving on wool felt squares you can create both simple and complex designs expressing the gratitude in your heart.
