NEW!  CHAIR EXERCISE

All Abilities Chair Exercise:  Mind, Body, Soul Series

Every Monday:  9 AM - 10 AM

Beginning Monday, April 11, 2016

DSCL Meeting Room

Carla Daws, Dancing Tree Instructor

 

Promptly at 9 AM every Monday morning, adults are invited to exercise in their chairs.  The class ends at 10 AM with an invitation to go about your week with renewed vigor.  This unique program is a partnership with The Dancing Tree and is made possible through the generosity and tremendous appreciation of The Dancing Tree instructors for the work of public libraries.  Carla Daws is the group instructor and she is excited to meet you!

Mind, Body, Soul Instructor Carla Daws has been enthusiastically teaching exercise and yoga for more than 7 years in the Texas Hill Country.  She earned her yoga teaching certification from the Living Yoga Program.   When Carla is not leading Hatha, gentle, and family yoga classes, you can find her acting in stage and film productions. Carla leads the All Abilities Chair Exercise–Mind, Body, Soul series classes for the Dancing Tree.

Her favorite saying is, “Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.” -Unknown.

Please note:  Group size is limited to the first twenty registrants.  In order to best accommodate everyone, please let the library staff know you will be there.   Contact Library Assistant SuzAnne Beard by emailing suzanne@dscl.org or by telephoning 512-858-7825 after 12 noon on any weekday and asking for SuzAnne Beard.

Stunning Texas Superstars!

Date:  Thursday, April 21, 2016
Time:  6:00 PM
Guest Speaker:  Marilyn Love, Hays County Master Gardener
Direct your RSVP to suzanne@dscl.org.  Please let us know how many will be in the group.

The Texas Superstar® Program identifies specific plants that have been proven to flourish in our Texas heat. The plants are insect-tolerant and highly drought and disease resistant.  They provide stunning color and beauty while requiring minimal care or reliance on chemical pest control.  Come ready to learn how to save money, identify these Texas Superstar plants, find ways to use them in your landscape, and care for them just enough to help them flourish and reward you with their beauty.

Marilyn Love was born and raised in Dallas, Texas but in northern New York State and then West Virginia as an adult.  When she retired to Texas in 2010, she discovered that Central Texas gardening was completely different.

“I needed to learn how to garden in Central Texas,” said Marilyn Love.  “I completed the Hays County Master Gardener course in May 2012 and the Texas Superstar Plant Specialist training this past September.”
