If you are any­thing like me being snowed in dur­ing a pan­dem­ic over the hol­i­days involved plen­ty of Christ­mas movies, whole sea­son binges, plus more than the usu­al baked goods, sweets, and fes­tive bev­er­ages. Also, if you are like me, you may not be plan­ning a brisk hike up Mt. Young any­time soon. If a gen­tler form of retriev­ing your body from the Matrix appeals to you, you are in luck.

The Mullis Cen­ter has teamed up with the indomitable Kate­ri­na Wen to bring you both Chair Yoga and Bal­ance and Stretch class­es. Due to Kate­ri­na and her part­ner trav­el­ing over­seas her class­es have tem­porar­i­ly been avail­able on YouTube. Says Anna from the Mullis Cen­ter, “You are wel­come to access this week’s class record­ing as often as you’d like and we encour­age you to share it with oth­ers far and wide.

Upon her immi­nent return Kate­ri­na will resume both class­es via Zoom. Mean­while her YouTube class­es will remain avail­able and are post­ed on the Mullis Center’s Face­book Page.

These class­es have been avail­able to all San Juan Island seniors and dis­abled adults on a “pay what you can” basis since the ear­ly days of the pan­dem­ic. The sug­gest­ed fee for each class is $6 per class.

The class­es are offered on a slid­ing scale. “If you are in a posi­tion to cov­er all or part of the sug­gest­ed fee that’s great, but if not please don’t wor­ry, we just want you to join us!” You can pay for the class­es by mail­ing a check to the Mullis Cen­ter at PO Box 684. Please write “Chair Yoga” on the memo line. Any con­tri­bu­tions above the sug­gest­ed fee are han­dled as tax deductible dona­tions and are great­ly appreciated.

Get­ting a jump on New Year’s res­o­lu­tions I joined Katrina’s Chair Yoga class this morn­ing and was remind­ed how even sub­tle move­ments can have pro­found effects. If you spend a fair amount of time at a com­put­er this is an excel­lent anti­dote. Here is wish­ing you a healthy and hap­py new year!
