NEWS BRIEFS Book Launch:

The 21-Day Yoga Challenge: Inspiration for a lifetime of good health By Ann Fitzmaurice

Illustrated by Altina Layman

ometimes we all need a little motivation to help us follow through with a commitment. That is what author and yoga instructor Ann Fitzmaurice provides each year as she leads stu- dents through the 21-day yoga challenge. Now that motivation can be found in a new book, The 21-Day Yoga Challenge: Inspi- ration for a lifetime of good health.


Engaging essays and beautiful illustrations guide readers and yogis through a three week practice to increase their physical and mental well being. A book launch celebration will be held on Friday, March 1, 2019, 7pm at Scuppernong Books (304 S. Elm Street, Greensboro, NC). The first 21-day yoga challenge began with a dedicated

group from the Kathleen Price Bryan YMCA in Greensboro, NC, where Fitzmaurice believes the mission of the YMCA to provide programs to build a healthy spirit, mind and body is embraced fully. A portion of all proceeds of books sold at the Bryan YMCA will go to support this mission.

In addition to the book launch, workshops and special classes will be held at the Bryan YMCA, Radiance Yoga, and The Yoga Studio in Oriental, NC. For more information, please contact

Falling Workshop: The Art of Injury Prevention Saturday, February 23 9:30-11am


ractice ground-falling techniques in a safe, padded environ- ment! The Art of Falling, or Breakfalls, is practiced in the martial arts of Judo, Ju-Jitsu, and Aikido among others. Research proves that fear of falling leads to more falls. By

learning safe and controlled falling techniques, we reduce that fear.

Preparation for accidents reduces the chance of injury, since fall injuries can lead to loss of independence, or worse. This workshop features conditioning for the entire body and

reduces fragility, the chief reason for serious injuries. People from 18 to 83 have participated and graduated with confidence! Learn these time-tested techniques from martial arts expert Eric Reiss.

Join us on Saturday, February 23 from 9:30 until 11:00 am at The Club at Oak Branch, 21 Oak Branch Dr, Greensboro. Fee: 35.00/25.00 (Club members).

Call 336-478-2660 to reserve your space by Feb. 20. Visit the Events page at: to view the flyer.
