Extension office provides yoga class, youth sewing camp

-A A +A
By Grace Angotti

 This Saturday, July 14 is the first session of a series of four Saturday morning Yoga classes to be held at the Extension office. Each class will run from 9-10 a.m. which gives you the rest of Saturday for yourself.

The instructor is Carol Romero who has been practicing Yoga for over 15 years and is a Certified Yoga instructor with the Royal School of Yoga. This week’s topic is “Yoga for Managing Stress”.

 Yoga is a good way to strengthen and tone the body. Practicing Yoga also helps calm the mind and relax the body. It also helps limber the muscles and joints and enhances a feeling of pease and vitality to the body.

Cost of the class is $35 for the 4-session series or $10 per class. Registration deadline is July 12. All interested residents are invited, but please call the Extension office at 732-7030 so we have enough materials

Students are encouraged to bring their own mats. Other classes are August 11 – Yoga for Better Sleep, Sept. 8 – Yoga for a Stronger Back and October 13 – Yoga for Better Flexibility.


Youth Sewing Camp

Youth ages 9 to 14 interested in learning to sew are invited to attend our Youth Sewing Camp Monday, July 16 – Friday, July 20 from 9 a.m. until noon at the Extension office. We have a very dedicated group of ladies who love to sew who are working with me to offer this special camp. We will be teaching basic sewing skills. The first item we will make is a pillowcase, and after completing that, students will make pajama bottoms. Cost for the five days is $9 which covers cost of fabric for the pillowcase; fabric for the pajama bottoms will be purchased at the camp from a selection of fabric available. Please call the Carroll County Extension office at 732-7030 to sign up to attend. Those with a sewing machine should bring it to the class.


“Tasty Travels across America”

The Northern Kentucky Extension Agents for Family and Consumer Sciences would like to invite all interested food lovers to attend “Tasty Travels across America”, a special culinary program at the Boone County Extension office on  Tuesday, July 24 to enjoy a meal “by the bite”  while exploring familiar and new foods relating to the geography of our country and state food cultures.

The program will be presented at noon and again at 6 p.m.

We will be presenting food samples and information about foods from across America featuring recipes from our Extension Family and Consumer Sciences Living Well Book.

The cost of this special program is only $5, which includes your meal by-the-bite and a copy of the Living Well book. This $29.95 value book is being made available exclusively at the Tasty Travels across America program due to a generous grant from the National Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sciences.

Space is limited for the noon seating. There is still plenty of seating for the evening session.

A registration form is available at the Carroll County Extension Office, 500 Floyd Drive in Carrollton or by calling 732-7030 and Rhonda or I can e-mail you a copy of the form.

Registration must be postmarked by July 16 in order to receive a copy of the hardback book. Join us on July 24—you’ll be glad you did!
