This specialized yoga class has been offered in Bloomington for 12 years and is led by an experienced, C-IAYT yoga therapist specializing in yoga therapy for MS and other neurological conditions. Class size is restricted in order to ensure that proper attention and supervision are given to each attendee, and exercises and postures are modified as necessary. Ability, energy level, and knowledge of yoga will vary… We ask that attendees come to class with a sense of humor and respect for others.

Yoga Therapy Classes Include:
_ Gentle, modified Hatha Yoga appropriate for those with MS
_ Balancing of muscle groups, nerve stretches, hip and spine mobilization
_ Therapeutic yoga exercises to assist with proprioception, balance, gait
_ Learning to recognize forms of stress and tension in the body which can lead to fatigue, spasticity, falls
_ Focus on confidence and body-awareness
_ Using the breath as a natural support during yoga and to decrease overall fatigue and chronic pain

Yoga for Myself Classes meet on Tuesdays at 9:15am in a location appropriate for those with restricted mobility: Handicap accessible parking, no stairs, non-slip floors, and wheelchair accessible bathrooms.

Carved stone African animals are also interspersed throughout the garden to provide a fun interactive safari adventure for all ages.

Tours of the garden are FREE but are limited to only 10 guests per tour. Reservations are required. You may register up to 24 hours in advance of the scheduled tour. Masks are highly recommended.

Cardinal Play Dates

07:00 pm to 08:00 pm
Online
https://cardinalstage.org/homepage-feature/cardinal-play-dates/

Play Dates is a monthly script-reading club. It’s just like a book club, but for theater! Each month we’ll read a different play or musical and then meet to discuss the piece. We’ll read a little bit of the show out loud, talk about themes and characters, and occasionally do Q&A with playwrights or other theater experts. If you love theater and want to expand your knowledge or meet fellow theater fans, this is the group for you!
Anyone can join Play Dates for free, but members will need to purchase scripts each month (or borrow them from the library). We want to ensure that playwrights are getting paid for their work. We will provide links to outlets where each month’s script will be available for purchase or loan, as well as additional resources like cast albums or video recordings.

Play Dates will meet on the final Wednesday of each month at 7pm over Zoom, until we are able to meet in person.
