Instructors:

Karin DeMuro

 

Karin DeMuro hopes to offer yoga in the fall. Please check back for updates.

 

Karin has been leading fitness classes at the Center since 2011. She is a Certified Yoga Alliance teacher, RYT - 200 YA  certified, and a Certified Zumba Fitness Instructor. 

 

Karin's Monday class is a Hatha/Vinyasa class. It is a slower and nicely-paced class, yet designed for all levels. Starting with breath work, Karin can help focus on proper positioning for the Asansas (poses), helping to build your strength and flexibility. 

Karin's Wednesday class is a Yin class. Yin is a much slower-paced, meditative version of yoga.  Poses are on the floor (seated or laying), and are held for a longer period of time with the use of various supports (bolsters, blocks, blankets, etc).  These are more passive holds, with little muscle engagement, so that one can target the inner connective tissue.

Adult Recreational Pickleball
(at BVCS Mountain View campus in Elizabethtown)

When the outdoor courts become unavailable through winter, the Social Center sponsors pickleball for adults at the Mountain View Campus of BVCS in Elizabethtown because the school requires a sponsor to provide liability insurance for non-school events and activities.

The Center agrees to provide this coverage to offer community members an opportunity to have fun and get exercise. In return, the Center asks players to abide by guidelines in order to have a safe environment where all players are welcome and participate.
