uring the month of July, Alice Wagner of Academic Achievement and Gabriela Chinnock of Color Me Yoga will be teaming up for the first time to provide some fun learning and focusing skills for 5-6 year olds. The children will start out with some group games and exercises that will promote reading readiness and then will head into the yoga studio to work on focus and self-esteem through postures, yoga games, singing, chanting, breathing and meditation. The reading readiness program is aimed at developing emergent readers. The program will focus on phonemic awareness, letter recognition and formation, left to right progression and associating letters to beginning sounds. “Children who love books are motivated and confident about learning to read, and learn to read more quickly and easily,” says Wagner. “Our goal is to provide a place where children can enjoy the learning process.”

Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live. ~Jim Rohn

Chinnock believes that yoga can support the child in so many ways: socially, emotionally, academically and creatively. According to Chinnock, “Children can take the time to feel good about themselves as individuals and also have the experience that learning new things can be fun in a group environment.”

The classes will be held on Thursdays from 12:15 to 1:45 p.m. at Sanctuary Studios at 132 Park Ave, New City. For more information contact gabrielacolormeyoga@, 917-680-8782 or sign up at See ad, page 33.

A Community Experience at the Warwick Valley Farmers’ Market


or 17 years, neighbors, visitors, farmers, and chefs have been gathering in the Village of Warwick on Sundays. The Warwick Valley Farm- ers’ Market provides a space for the community to connect, learn and shop for the freshest local produce and freshly prepared foods from farm kitchens.

The 2011 season of the farmers’ markets will have more offerings than ever before, with 32 vendors at the height of the season. This year you can shop with greater ease by signing out a cart to gather all the goods you wish to purchase. You can leave the cart at the pick-up station on Bank Street while you enjoy other offer- ings in town and then pick up your purchased items when you are ready to go. As always, the Warwick Valley Farmers’ Market will have all the freshest fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, wines, baked goods, jams and jellies, honey, maple syrup, soap, flowers and plants. Trying to find the perfect gift for teachers, birthdays or Father’s Day? Gift certificates valid for the entire 2011 season are available at the market manager’s table. It’s a gift that’s green, healthy, and supports local farms and businesses.
