    "The Seventh Limb"
Meditation for Busy Lives

Instructor: Susan J. Atkins, Ph.D.

Session one will present information about the benefits of meditation practice and we will also dispel common myths. Everyone can meditate. It simply requires the willingness and correct instruction.

You will learn and practice a basic breath meditation, an ambient sound meditation, an individualized visualization practice, and a body scan. A sheet of "helpful reminders" will be provided for each style of meditation.

Saturday, November 2nd 9:00-11:00 AM

Session two will begin with a review and a question and answer period. After having two weeks to practice, you may wish for clarification.

Session two will include a guided visualization practice, a mindfulness practice, mantra meditation, along with variations for walking practice.

Each session $25.

Help Celebrate Our Anniversary And Raise Money For Sick Kids


October 9th is Body & Soul's 13th anniversary and we are celebrating by raising money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. 


Please join me for a fun and challenging group workout session.

Spread the word among your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers. 

Space is limited but if we get enough interest, I’ll hold two sessions - one at 9:00 AM and one at 10:00 AM.

Donation is $20 or $20 or more in sponsor donations. I have sponsor sheets here at the gym if you need one.  If you can’t join us, please consider making a donation.

It really helps if I have an idea of how many people will be attending so if you could let me know be coming  that would be very helpful.  However, if you decide last minute that’s great, too. Call me at 717-509-7777. Raising as much money as possible is obviously the goal.    

The workout will last approximately 45 minutes, including warmup and cooldown.

All fitness levels are invited. Exercises will be adapted or substituted, as necessary.  Anyone 12 and older is welcome to participate. 

All proceeds benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, where no child is ever turned away due to parental inability to pay and no family is billed for services not paid by insurance
