Steamboat briefs: Free library yoga practice to focus on Seane Corn’s DVD

The library’s free community yoga practice is for all ages, abilities and experience levels and is intended for anyone who wants to build a personal home yoga practice while checking out the variety of free library resources available.

As a community of yogis, the focus is on a different yoga instructor’s DVD or CD during each session. Participants work at their own pace throughout each session and enjoy the support of the local yoga community while absorbing the teaching of some of the world’s most esteemed yogis.

AARP Smart Driving class to be offered to local seniors

An AARP Smart Driving class will be held from noon to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Jan 11, at the Steamboat Springs Community Center. The class is designed to help drivers 50 and older compensate for age-related changes.

Many millions of people have taken this course through the years, and it has been statistically shown to reduce the number of accidents and severity of injuries in those accidents for those who took the class as compared with the same age group who did not.

State law requires insurance companies to give a discount to those having taken the class, which is being cosponsored by Routt County Council on Aging and Debbie Aragon Insurance Agency. The cost is $15 for AARP members and $20 for non-members.

Jane and Bud Romberg have been teaching this program for the past 22 years. Call 970-879-0064 for more information or to register.
