It’s no secret that prenatal yoga can be one of the best forms of exercise for mamas-to-be. Join expecting mom and certified yoga instructor, Jacqui Nash, every Friday, starting November 2, for a prenatal yoga class open to all levels. We will begin the class discussing a weekly topic related to pregnancy where future mamas can share their own stories, concerns & ideas about the topic. After our discussion, we’ll explore very gentle prenatal poses for women new to yoga and we will even touch on some sequences for more experienced practitioners. Each class will end with restorative postures, meditation and final relaxation. Join us as we build a prenatal community and we watch our bellies grow together.
Friday 3:00-4:15pm $12. Pre-registration encouraged but not required. Please bring your own pillow. Call Jacqui for more info or to preregister- 845-399-7478

My drawings and paintings utilize concepts of beauty, ancient symbols and the metaphysical. The ground
space is a metaphor for the celestial universe and the figures and subjects in most pieces transcend
ordinary portraiture, and landscapes. Energies, thoughts, memories, dreams and spirit are explored,
expressed and broken down through out my pieces. Different realities and dimensions are depicted
through color, layers and composition. Biomorphic forms, conveying different states of being and
emotions go unnoticed and at other times are highlighted. The use of symbols, carvings and animals
reflect my interest in ancient mythologies and beliefs. Often combining realistic representation with
abstract imagery my work dwells in many realms.
