Slow yoga takes the emphasis off accomplishing something and puts it more on experiencing something. Registration and experience are not required.

Relax with Essential Oils – Raindrop Technique which will be held on Thursday, May 5 @ 6 PM. Give your feet a treat by experiencing Raindrop Technique. Inspired by the Lakota Indians, Raindrop Technique uses therapeutic oils for balancing and rejuvenating the mind and body. When properly applied to the neck, back, and feet, these essential oils can bring about electrical alignment and help relieve a variety of discomforts caused by imbalances in the body. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Anastasia Island Branch Library.

St. Augustine Satsang Meditation will be held Tuesdays, May 10 & 24 @ 5 PM. Enjoy some quiet time after a stressful day at work with Satsang Meditation.
