Fun and movement in one uniquely designed movement class by WCA member, Maude Baum! This program will get every part of your body moving and will improve breathing, core muscle strength, flexibility, endurance, and balance; enhance your joy in moving and sweat!
What is moving meditation? Where is my core? How deeply can I breathe? What is strength anyway? How long must I hold a stretch to get some flexibility? You'll find the answers during class. Movements are easy to follow and designed to have the most benefit without injury. Music fills the air as you move, find muscles that you have not moved in a long time, and learn more about yourself.
Maude is founder and director of the award winning “Maude Baum and Company Dance Theater” in Albany.
This program is presented via ZOOM on Saturday March 13th at 2:00pm

Women like the famous Harriet Tubman, played a critical role in the anti -slavery movement. Here in Albany, Harriet Myers and husband Stephen were prominent abolitionists whose house on Livingston Ave in Albany was a stop on the Under Ground Railroad. This zoom lecture will be led by Meyers Residence directors, Paul and MaryLiz Stewart who were the driving force behind the preservation of this Greek revival townhouse built in the mid-19th Century. We will reflect on why women were so passionate about abolition and the operation of safe houses for slaves fleeing north.
Included for session participants is an expert led tour of the Myer Residence on Sat. April 10th at 12:30 pm. This house is listed on both the National Register of Historic Places and the Underground Railroad Heritage Trail.
His book is available on Amazon with all proceeds for charity.
