Arts for All Ages in Caledonia
Caledonians of all ages will have the opportunity to explore the arts throughout 2020 starting this month. Thanks to a Community Collaboration Grant, the Caledonia Public Library will be partnering with the Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts (MCA) of Winona to bring free 8-week art classes and a few one-day art events to Mainspring in Caledonia. Due to space constraints in the library, all of the arts programming will be located about a block from the library inside the local arts and cultural nonprofit, Mainspring. In total there will be four 8-week art workshops, a theatre performance and workshop with MCA’s youth improv troupe, and two storytimes. Below are the program details for the first three events:

Yoga with Melissa Wray
Wednesdays at 6:00 & 7:30 pm (Jan – Apr)
$10 pay at the door, no advance reservation necessary

6:00 – 7:00 pm // Power Vinyasa
This will be a more fast-paced vinyasa class, with emphasis on building strength and flexibility. We will utilize breath to move through a variety of pose sequences. Great for people who want a full-body, supported workout with emphasis on mindfulness. 

7:30 – 8:30 pm // Flow & Restore
Combining slow flow (first 30 min) and restorative yoga (last 30 min), this class will start with gentle movement and poses. The last half of the class will be mostly relaxing poses on the mat held for longer periods of time, while focus on breathing and relaxation. Great for people who want a slower, more mindful pace focused on relaxation. Also great fit for those new to yoga or trying it out.
