General Info: Cost: $12/class or a discounted $64 for the 8-week session (that’s like getting a couple classes for free!) As always, your first class with me at either site is free and if you’re registered for a session, you may take your classes at either location and make up missed classes at either location. (Please plan to make up any missed classes during the session, give or take a week.) For additional info click on "General Yoga Class Info" under Topics on the right column.

Wildlife Center Spring '09 Open Houses

The Wildlife Center of Virginia has announced its Spring Open House schedule. The Center offers open houses just twice a year – in the spring and fall. It’s a wonderful opportunity to visit the Center, see the Center’s medical facilities, and meet some of the education animals – including owls, eagles, possums, tortoises, and snakes – that live at the Center.

The open houses are free, but you must reserve your spot in advance, and the spots fill quickly. Here are the upcoming dates:
  • Sunday, March 1;
  • Sunday, March 15;
  • Sunday, March 29;
  • Sunday, April 5; and
  • Sunday, April 19

The Center will have three separate sessions each day – at 12:30 p.m., 2:00 p.m., and 3:30 p.m. This is a rare opportunity to see the inner workings of the nation’s premier wildlife hospital, as well as meet some of the wildlife that serve as the Center’s education staff and ambassadors. It’s well worth the pretty drive to Waynesboro!

For more info, visit the Wildlife Center’s website at Or to reserve a place at the open house contact the Center at 540.942.9453 or
