This inversion prep workshop will be focusing on handstand and forearm stand. It is designed to be a space to discuss the mechanics and options of getting into, being in, and getting out of these postures. Once we understand the techniques we will explore how flexibility, strength, and mobility all play a part with where we need to begin. The room will be set up in stations to utilize equipment to help you build best practices for approaching your inversions. All levels are welcome and all stations are optional.

The Roommate

Cardinal Stage presents “The Roommate” January 30 – February 16 at the Ivy Tech Waldron Rose Firebay. Recently-divorced Sharon is searching for a roommate to share her Iowa home. She couldn’t have imagined that a mysterious New Yorker named Robyn would be the answer to her problems. But as Sharon begins to uncover Robyn’s secrets, they spark a desire to transform her own life completely. This smart new comedy tackles the challenges of mid-life reinvention, with unexpected results. “The Roommate tugs at the heartstrings as much as it tickles the funny bone.” ~ Louisville.com

Self-Care Sunday: Crove n’ Brew

02:00 pm to 06:00 pm
Juniper Art Gallery, 46 E Market St, Spencer, IN 47460

Self-Care Sunday: The Art of Well-Being!
Crove n’ Brew with Terese Urban (OHM & Brew is on a break for the month)

Second Sunday, February 9
2:00-4:00 pm – Being CREATIVE is an important aspect of Self-Care!
Bring your portable fiber-art project to the gallery for a FREE afternoon of fun and fiber in Juniper’s Community Room! Artist, Terese Urban will be on hand to demonstrate her unique combination of crocheting and weaving! Juniper Art Gallery offers her popular, “hand-croven” scarves* for sale through our Artisan Shop.

4:30 – 6:00 –– Afterwards, we will enjoy some food and drink together at Civilian Brewing Corps (on the Spencer Courthouse Square)! Please note that attendees are responsible for the expense of their own food and drink at the brewery.

*A “croven” scarf is a piece of artwear that is lovingly made by combining the arts of crocheting and weaving. First, a mesh that forms the base of the scarf is crocheted to create the warp for weaving. Then, strands of beautifully colored and textured yarns are woven through the warp creating a unique design. The final product is a warm, ultra-soft work of art meant to comfort the wearer on a chilly day.

Join us Sunday afternoons for a variety of self-care experiences that will relax, enrich and sooth your heart, mind, body and spirit. Self-Care Sundays are offered by local and regional practitioners from a variety of personal-well-being disciplines.
