February is all about Love
Opening hearts and bodies in classes at the Caldwell YMCA this month. We promote our once a year fund raising with our Annual Campaign. Deb's yoga classes at the Y will be filled with opening hearts and Heart Chakra flows this month; while Pilates continues strengthening and lengthening the muscles of your core; Silver Sneakers can enjoy fun, fitness and friends... together in our classes that are open to everyone (not just seniors!)
The Christian faith begins 40 days and nights of focusing on the savior Jesus and his pain and struggle before he was put to death and was resurrected on Easter, according to their beliefs. The time for waiting and focusing and prayerfully anticipating this event in the Christian calendar is called "Lent". Even though a lot of us observe Lent with fasting, and giving up something that allows us to "feel his pain" (ie sweets) it is a time of dedicated devotion to the Divine. Even as "we are suffering as Christ suffered".... take the time to enjoy the end of winter, the month of love... flowers, candy, cards, gifts and special activities with the one you love. Reach out to others and show them how much you love and appreciate them. Send a love poem to someone you care about. Namaste'
