Mindful March Gentle Yoga
Thursday, March 29,
4:30 - 5:30 PM
Sponsored by the Concussion Resource Center and Bozeman Public library Foundation as part of Brain Awareness Month
Open to all. No experience necessary. Located in the Large Community Room. Led by Turi Hetherington, RYT500 Members of the CRC Board of Directors will be available for Q&A
Brain injuries - from mild (concussion) to severe traumatic brain injuries - impact many people's lives in significant ways. While individuals may appear the same on the outside, much has been altered inside. For those on the road to recovery, and their care givers, yoga offers not only gentle exercise, but also therapeutic benefits - physically, emotionally and mentally - assisting individuals in reconnecting with their bodies in a positive way and finding a “new normal” post injury. Many find a sense of peace and self-acceptance for the first time, a hidden blessing in their journey.
Call for Artists
The Bozeman Public Library Foundation is seeking submissions for its 2019 Atrium Gallery Exhibition Series. The Atrium Gallery, located in the Library lobby, showcases both traditional and innovative contemporary art forms, as well as the work of both established and emerging artists of our region.
The Library’s primary objective is to feature exhibitions that will expand public appreciation of art and reflect the diversity of the community. Selections will be made by the Library Art Committee, which is made up of local artists, community members, Library Foundation, and Library staff. Each exhibit will run for one to three months, determined by the committee.
The Bozeman Public Library is committed to promoting the visual and aesthetic enhancement of the Bozeman community through this ongoing presentation of rotating exhibits of public art in the Library. Proposals must be received by April 30, 2018. For complete description of the program and guidelines, visit www.bozemanlibrary.org/events/atrium-art-gallery-current-exhibit.
