Symposia Community Events – September 2014

Symposia is looking for volunteers to help out at the Art and Music Festival in Hoboken on Sept.28th 10 am to 7 pm. We need help moving books to and from the booth, manning the booth, shelving, or simply promoting the store. If you could spare an hour or two, please contact Carmen at 201-805-1739.
Donations are the lifeline of our business. If you’ve got used books, CDs, DVDs, games, toys that you don’t want anymore, please drop them off at our store and we’ll give you a tax-deductible receipt!

$8 Yoga Class (basic level) – 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 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.
After the class, feel free to linger, have a cup of tea, chat. Refreshments will be served.
Certified Yoga Instructor Carmen Rusu

PUPPETONIA – Puppet Shows for Babies and Toddlers

Since its inception, Puppetonia has taught children so much more than just their ABC’s and 123′s. The music and puppet shows incorporate important social skills, early academics, thinking skills, motor skills, and self-expression.
The music is fun and upbeat, and the children are encouraged to move to the rhythm, follow verbal instructions, practice sequential movements, and have a great time. And there are bubbles galore!

For a sample of our shows, check these links:

Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri: 10 and 11 am

BABY PUPPETONIA: Tue, Wed and Thu at 1.30 pm

Two new shows every week.
No reservation required.
