Symposia Community Events – July 2012

Free Yoga Classes at Symposia Bookstore – Every Wednesday at 7 pm

Have you always shied away from Yoga because you thought you weren’t very flexible?

Symposia is now opening its doors to a totally new environment for yoga practice: small classes, taught in a supportive, non-competitive manner, with individual attention.  Students will be gently guided through basic yoga postures, yogic breathing, meditation, and relaxation techniques.

The Evolved Urbanite – Creating a Social, Cultural & Intellectual Renaissance in Hudson County – Friday, July 20 at  7 pm    

Founded by educator John Bredin, this is a new project designed to ameliorate the sense of urban alienation and, at the same time, create a vital space to learn about culture and the arts.  A typical Evolved Urbanite gathering (or cultural party) will take place in somebody’s home, an art gallery, or bookstore like Symposia.  The structure is very simple.  One or two creative people (artists, writers, educators, etc) will present an aspect of their work for our edification and reflection.  Then, to help us think about what we just learned, we’ll have an open dialogue (about 20 minutes), followed by a mingling session for random social encounters.

Of course, musicians are also most welcome to add to the aesthetic atmosphere.
