For Restorative Yoga

Find some cushions, large books, yoga blocks, blankets, whatever you can use instead of bolsters and blocks.  We make it work.  For more information on Restorative yoga, check out my site, niawithlinda.com.  It is a lovely passive practice that gives the participant relaxation and calm. Who couldn’t use that right now.

If you are new to Nia and Restorative Yoga with Linda, these streaming classes are free.  Share with anyone who you feel needs a little movement or peace in their lives during this period of social isolation.

So here is how it works.  It will be easier for you if you download the Zoom client for meetings for a desktop or laptop, or the app for phones and tablets.

Then click on this link to bring to my website and the list of streaming classes

At my website, niawithlinda.com, you will want to click on the link for the class and time you are trying to join.  Otherwise you will be all alone!

If you have downloaded the client/app, the meeting will open automatically in that interface.

If you have not downloaded the app/client, it should open in a web browser.

You can join early and sit in the waiting room. No magazines but no doctors either.

I’ll leave the audio open till the class starts.  If I leave the audio on, it interferes with my audio and we can’t have that!  I’ll open it back up at the end.  If you need to get my attention, you can raise your hand.  It is an icon in the middle of the bottom of the screen.

If you need any techie help, call me  617-851-2738  or email me at contact@niawithlinda.com

Find a little space in your home and be prepared to move and have fun.

Feel free to share these invitations to classes with anyone who needs it.

News from your YMCA!

As a family member you have access to the outdoor pool and waterparks at our Y locations in Marblehead, Ipswich and Gloucester. Click here for all pool details!
The summer we have all been waiting for is here!

This has been an amazing summer! Our camps are full of happy campers exploring new things like adventure courses, STEAM programs, paddleboarding, sailing, kayaking and more.  Being outside, having fun and reengaging with friends was just what they needed.  

Our pools are filled with smiling swimmers learning the life skill of water safety and our wellness centers continue to be the essential places where members can safely stay active, healthy and connected.

We have met so many new families through our community outreach over the past year while we provided remote learning opportunities, emergency childcare, and other crucial  resources during the pandemic. We have been able to engage more individuals, children, and families and welcome them into our Y community.  

More than ever before, we are clearly seen as more than our fitness centers, pools and programs. We are recognized as a critical resource for all in good times and in bad.  Your local Y is here to strengthen the community and meet vital needs.

We will never forget what it took to reopen responsibly so rest assured our staff is committed to your safety. We are vigilant in our efforts to keep our facilities clean and safe and dedicated to making your Y experience the best it can be.  We are truly all in this together.

Thank you for supporting our Y and for being part of our Y family.
