Wellness Wednesday - Self-Care for Busy People
Wed 11/14, 6:30 pm
We think of stress as being caused by negative things, but even positive events can be stressful.  As we approach the holiday season, too much of a good thing can be a source of stress that isn’t good for anyone. Join presenter Annette Watson for tips and techniques for stress management that you can use on-the-go.  Annette is a Bow resident, a holistic RN, yoga teacher, and therapist.  Registration required – call 224-7113 or email info@bakerfreelib.org.

FREE Community Yoga Classes by Yoga NH
As part of a facility rental agreement approved by the Library Trustees, Yoga NH (owned by Maureen Miller of Dover, NH) is pleased to offer FREE 1-hour yoga classes each month to Bow residents and library card holders!  See below for a complete date/time listing.

These classes are suitable for all levels, so if you've ever wanted to try a yoga class this is a great way to do it for no cost. Classes are held in the Merrimack County Savings Bank Room in the Lower Level. Since the majority of these classes are held outside of regular library hours, participants will need to enter through the Lower Level door near the handicapped parking and ramp.

Please register in advance by contacting Lori Fisher at 224-7113 or lori@bakerfreelib.org. Pre-registration guarantees your spot, since some of these classes will have a larger yoga teacher training group in attendance.

Thank you to Maureen Miller and Yoga NH for giving back to the Bow community as part of their paid use of our facilities for events and workshops!

Upcoming FREE community yoga class dates - all are 9 am to 10 am unless otherwise noted:

Sat 12/1/2018
