2020 Lotus Festival Unwind Yoga

10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Online
http://www.lotusfest.org

Lotus is delighted to once again offer our Lotus Festival Unwind Yoga on Sunday of the virtual festival, allowing attendees to go beyond the music and movement and add breath to expand their joy. You are invited to a special live-stream workshop, Sunday, September 27th from 10 am – 12 pm. This event is free, and donations are warmly welcomed to support our year-round work.

Register through Eventbrite to get the live-stream link: https://bit.ly/3hgwUrU​

Suggested supplies: Participants are encouraged to set up a small space with a mat, towel/blanket, water, and to have something to help with balance if needed (for example, a yoga block, book, or chair) nearby. In addition, bring a set of therapy balls or try subbing two new tennis balls and clean sock.

A playlist, for those wishing to enjoy music along with the practice, will be emailed via a Spotify link form along with the live-stream Zoom link the morning of the practice.

This class, taught by Eryn Blair and longtime Lotus Festival Unwind Yoga contributor and organizer Samantha Eibling, will combine a slow flowing yoga practice with Self Myofascial Release techniques throughout. These techniques reach our muscle fibers and connective tissues, creating the potential for new experiences within the yoga poses. More space and organization in our joints and fascia provides potential to access more strength and mobility than previously perceived. This practice will be accessible and appropriate for beginners as well as more advanced practitioners.​

WonderLab STEM Sundays for Families – Driverless Car

03:00 pm to 04:00 pm
Virtual Event
https://www.wonderlab.org

Join WonderLab educators for STEM Sunday and work together on a project for the whole family. During this STEM Sunday, we will learn about types of forces and motion. We will put what we learned into practice by trying to move a toy car. There are many different ways to do this activity, so there will be something at home you can use! Some suggested materials are a small toy with wheels, straw, magnets, book, paper, and tape. You may come up with other ways to do it that need different materials! This is a great opportunity for the whole family to explore the engineering design process. This program is made possible through funding from Cook Medical and CFC Properties.
