Yoga instructor and author Larry Terkel will lead a meditation workshop at the library on Tuesday, January 31 from 7 – 8 p.m.
Meditation has many benefits. It has been shown to be a useful tool in lowering blood pressure and strengthening the immune system, as well as managing stress and heightening creativity. Meditation can be practiced sitting in a chair or lying down instead of in the traditional cross-legged position and is suitable for people of all abilities.
Terkel has studied yoga and meditation in India and has been teaching yoga since 1971. He is the author of two books, “Small Change: It’s the Little Things in Life That Make a Big Difference,” (published by Tarcher) and “How to Meditate.” Books will be available for purchase at the workshop, and are provided by the Learned Owl Book Shop.
To register for this free event, stop by the Information Desk at the library, or call (330) 688-3295 ext. 4. Comfortable clothing is recommended so that participants can more easily relax.
