CFAC sponsors yoga, Spanish classesJanuary 08, 2009SU News ServicesSUnews@syr.edu
The Community Folk Art Center (CFAC) is sponsoring two classes in the new year. “Introduction to Yoga” will begin Monday, Jan. 12, from 7:30-8:15 p.m. for 10 weeks in the dance studio at CFAC, 805 E. Genesee St., Syracuse. This class will bring participants through the fundamentals of the most common yoga postures and help develop breath and body awareness, foundational skills that will guide students throughout their yoga experience.
The class is appropriate for those with no previous yoga experience, as well as those who would like a refresher course of the fundamentals.
“Introduction to Spanish” will begin Wednesday, Jan. 14, and run from 6:15-7:30 p.m., also for 10 weeks. This course introduces the basics of the Spanish language and gives participants tools to begin speaking it and recognizing it in the world around them. The instructor will be Monica Garcia Taylor.
This class is appropriate for those with little or no experience with the Spanish language. Students are encouraged to provide their own copy of the class text, “Learn Spanish the Fast and Fun Way” (Barron’s Educational Series, third edition, 2002) by Gene Hammitt.
Drop-in sessions for either class will cost $10; each entire series is $80. To register, contact the CFAC at (315) 442-2230 or email@example.com.
