4.   Thursday Dec 3rd & 10th         Online Adult Meditation (Value Added pricing)
Join us virtually for a Meditation class! If you are new to Meditating or wanting to learn new techniques - Andrea will skillfully guide you through a very calming Meditative experience. This 30-minute mindfulness meditation class held on  Thursday's at 6:30 p.m.  will focus on cultivating a calm mind, connection, and clarity.  Pre-registration required.
As this is  not a 50+ specific program  Maddy will not be able to be as lenient on pre-registration. If anyone is having difficulty registering they can of course still reach out to her for help.
NB. For those attending the Yoga on Thursdays, both classes will count as one 'punch' on their pass rather than two.
