Classes cost $10 per class on a walk-in basis, or $80 for a 10-class punch card that may be used for Karin and Michael's classes. Please see one of these instructors to purchase.
Karin DeMuro offers yoga at 5 pm on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please check the calendars on the homepage for exact dates.
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.
Contact Karin for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Michael Fergot offers “Yoga: Basics for Wellness,” on Wednesdays and Fridays at 9 a.m. and Saturdays at 10 a.m. Please check the calendars on the homepage for exact dates.
Michael Fergot began his studies of yoga in Madison, Wisconsin in 1982. In 2002 Michael took his first teacher training and has been teaching yoga full-time in New York City since 2003. Michael and his wife moved to Westport in Sept. 2017. As an E-RYT 500 YA Teacher with over 13,000 hours of teaching experience, Michael loves that yoga is perpetually inviting us to begin again.
“Yoga: Basics for Wellness,” will be accessible for every level of participant.
COVID-related update regarding tennis
We have been following NYS updates and guidelines carefully and have determined that it is permissible to allow tennis, pickleball and platform tennis play.
NYS guidelines have been very science-based. While there is a variety of opinions and personal choices during the covid crisis, our opening will be based solely on NYS guidelines. Please make your own determination about when you feel it is safe to return to the courts. The Social Center building and programming will not open until June 26 at the earliest. If you have questions or concerns, please email us at email@example.com.
The following guidelines by the USTA should be reviewed before playing:
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.
Chec the facebook group "Social Center Pickleball" for days and times.
