Gift drive for needy senior citizens

Yoga Prana Center Holliston mA

A note from Roberta Weiner:

I teach Yoga at the Holliston Senior Center, which has made me aware of the many Senior Citizens who are alone and in need right here in our own community. For many years, and continuing this year, we have collected holiday gifts for these needy seniors.

A collection bin is upstairs in the foyer at Prana. Drop off at Yoga or Acting classes, or rehearsals, or if you’re not here regularly, drop off anytime! If the front door is locked just leave it on the bench outside or hang it on the front door. We’re always around.

Deadline is Tuesday, Nov. 27.

Suggested gifts:
gloves, scarves and socks for men or women
hand lotion or other similar toiletries
packets of hot chocolate or boxes of tea
large-print books or puzzle books
anything you can think of that would warm the heart of an older person home alone

I know there are tons of requests for donations this time of year. Thank you for considering.

Beginners’ Yoga – 2 new sessions starting now

Prana center yoga teacher Michele Proulx of Natick

If you’ve been meaning to try Yoga but something is holding you back, Beginner’s Yoga is a wonderful way to get started. A great introduction to Yoga for new students, or a fantastic brush-up on the basics for veterans!

Yoga is a proven way to increase strength, flexibility and balance, and is wonderfully relaxing. You will learn to breath more deeply and find levels of peace and serenity you didn’t know were possible. Western science has recently caught up to what experienced practitioners know for sure in their bodies and minds – yoga (when practiced carefully with a certified teacher) truly helps heal aches and pains and can help you manage weight and overall health.

This fall, Prana is offering two sessions of Beginner’s Yoga in a comfortable, non-judgmental, friendly setting!

Here’s a testimonial from a current student – received October 2018:

I LOVE the class. Just love it love it love it. I sleep like a baby after each class. I swear it’s already contributed to my lowered blood pressure (confirmed by my tracking and doctor). During times of stress outside of class, I feel I’m already now equipped to breathe and relax and take myself to a peaceful state of mind I’ve never reached before thanks to this class. – Brook Henderson, Holliston

A recent Google review:

Taking the time to practice yoga during the week has resulted in my having the ability to feel calmer, stronger, more centered and compassionate. I have learned how to relax and let go of worries while I am on the mat. Roberta has taught me the benefit of what she aptly refers to as “taking a well deserved rest”. When I am well rested, stronger and calmer, everyone in the family benefits. – Jennifer M, Holliston

And Meredith from Milford wrote: “The teacher made me feel super relaxed and comfortable which is what I was looking for as a new student.”

Our newest teacher, Michele from Natick, wrote this review last year:

I have been a student of yoga at the Prana Center in Holliston Ma for 3 years now. I came to this studio not truly knowing what I was looking for.Let me say what I have found here is a loving community built on promoting to each of us- breath and meditation techniques/ strength/ flexibility/ balance/ trust/ compassion/ growth/ and inner peace. Roberta has surrounded herself with a fantastic group of instructors, each offering their own special teaching styles, modifications, and practices.You can chose from gentle/ slow flow/ core/ vinyasa flow/ yoga with weights / and monthly restorative. Try a class or try them all – you will find something that speaks to you!
