Beginner guitar lessons
Get your guitar out of the closet, blow off the dust and join us for guitar lessons. This class of group lessons will cover basic chording and a variety of strums. Held from 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesdays, Jan. 18 to March 14 (no class Feb. 22), at the Van Buren Elementary music room, the class will teach some solo pieces. Participants must bring their own guitar as this will be a “hands on” hour of strummin’; electric guitars are okay, but without amp.
Winter tennis lessons

Session I (Jan. 6 to Feb. 25) held 4 to 5 p.m. Fridays (tots - 5 to 7 years; future champs - 8 to 11 years; and rippers - 12 to 15 years) and 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Saturdays (tots, future champs and rippers).
Vinyasa yoga, also known as Flow Yoga, is a class of continuous movement where one pose flows into another. The breath is synchronized with the movement and sets the length of the holding. The flow is built around a series of poses of the Sun Salutation, which is the foundation for the class. The continuous movement of a vinyasa makes this style more aerobic and more challenging. Participants should have basic knowledge of asanas and alignment. Heightened body awareness, strength and endurance is attained by this practice. This program, taught by a Kripalu certified teacher, will be held from 9 to 10:15 a.m. Wednesdays and from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m. Thursdays (Jan. 11 to Feb. 16) at AM/PM Yoga Source Studio. Intermediate level; previous yoga experience necessary.
