Shepherd’s Center of America visits Richmond

We had a wonderful visit last week from Sarah Cheney, Executive Director of Shepherd’s Center of America.

Julie and SarahSarah was in Northern Virginia at a ribbon cutting for the newest Shepherd’s Center, Western Fairfax County, one of the now seven Centers in Virginia.  The Shepherd’s Center of Richmond was the first, 31 years ago, and we mentored both the Chesterfield and Oakton-Vienna Shepherd’s Center when they first began.  It’s great to be a part of such an important national organization and a caring community of people meeting the growing needs of aging Americans 60+.  Click this SCA to find out more about Shepherd’s Center of America.

We would like to welcome Mary Frances Hobbs to the Feldenkrais teaching team!

Feldenkrais classes are held at 1:30 on Thursdays at First Presbyterian Church when the Open University is in session.  The Feldenkrais method is designed to improve a person’s movement repertoire, aiming to expand and refine the use of the body through awareness, in order to reduce pain or limitations in movement, and promote general well-being.

Watch the 10-minute video below to find out more about the Feldenkrais method and then come try it out at the OU!
