Happy Spine Yoga at WW

whetstonewellness2018_0034.jpg

A happy and healthy spine is the foundation of all our daily movements. Is your neck or back a little cranky sometimes? Do you feel tension and stress after sitting at work all day? Are you unsure of how to strengthen your core safely? Practice this safe and gentle class to relieve the tension and stress that is holding you back. An interesting blend of yoga poses, spine education, postural awareness, stretching, strengthening and breath work... all while decreasing your stress! This class is for everyone, even if you’ve never done yoga before.

Kristi is a native Vermonter with a compassionate heart, calming voice, and encouraging and uplifting spirit. She began practicing yoga at 48 years old and was astounded with the changes in her body, mind and spirit. She is not a “super flexible yoga person,” understands the crankiness that comes with aging, and utilizes props to make yoga possible for everyone. After 25 years of providing physical therapy, she pursued her 200 and advanced 300 yoga teacher training with Daniel Orlansky at Yoga of Energy Flow in the Boston area. Her diverse training included Alignment/Iyengar, Kundalini, Meridian, Yin, Restorative, Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra, Kali Ray Triyoga, Vinyasa and Qigong. She warmly welcomes you to join her in sharing this beautiful, ancient practice to find peace, tranquility, and strength to weather all the changes that life brings.

Together we will explore what "the two most joyful people on the planet" suggest in their unique collaboration.

Story Time at CPL

Every Tuesday and Friday morning in the children's room, families gather to hear stories, sing songs and play together.  Children's librarian Jen McKenzie designs a story time each week that supports babies' and young children's learning in many areas: literacy, math, social skills, and emotional development. 

Jen draws on her training from the Vermont Early Literacy Initiative to provide evidence-based skills in a relaxed and comfortable setting.  The programs are a fun and supportive way for families to explore reading readiness and social interactions with their child, and families can participate whenever it works into their schedule.

Jen weaves early literacy skills into each aspect of the story time.  Beginning with a welcome song, she emphasizes phonological awareness through rhyming and repetition.  Children pick out their names, or letters that their names begin with, and practice letter recognition.  As Jen reads the stories, she provides narratives that the children can relate to, and lays the foundation for print motivation.  

The library is an excellent place for children to practice social skills.  All are welcome at the library, and there is no expectation for what a child "should" be able to do.  If it is a hard day for a child to sit and listen, that is okay.  If sharing is difficult, or it is a very shy day, Jen will identify the emotion and offer suggestions for easing the feelings.  As children learn the story time routine, they develop a sense of belonging.  When children understand routine and expectations, they learn to self regulate their emotions, even when it is difficult.

  • East Craftsbury Presbyterian Church (map)

Our commitment is to provide meaningful worship of God, through prayer, strong preaching, study of the Bible and especially through music.  Meaningful worship is an aspect of ECPC held dear by members, some of which have been with us since birth and also one that has drawn new members to ECPC from afar.  We follow a traditional order of worship and generally follow the revised common lectionary for Scripture reading. (A schedule that brings us in contact with all parts of the Scriptures every three years.)

Our service has three main sections: Gathering: which includes praise and confession, which sensitized us to our need for God's love and help.  In the second section we hear the Word through Scripture, and a sermon.  The third section is where we respond to the Word by sharing our joys, concerns, prayers for the world and those around us and offering our gifts to God.  Hymns are sung at the opening of the service, after the sermons and at the closing of the service.  Music is organ and occasionally piano.  Our choir sings an Anthem that ties into the theme of the day.

We will start with a short parade so people can see all of the costumes. PLEASE DO NOT start early we would like all kids to go together.

Last year we had an estimated 150 kids that is up about 50 from the previous year so we are expecting 200 this year.

We also had many more cars handing out candy, Thank YOU!

Story Time at CPL

Every Tuesday and Friday morning in the children's room, families gather to hear stories, sing songs and play together.  Children's librarian Jen McKenzie designs a story time each week that supports babies' and young children's learning in many areas: literacy, math, social skills, and emotional development. 

Jen draws on her training from the Vermont Early Literacy Initiative to provide evidence-based skills in a relaxed and comfortable setting.  The programs are a fun and supportive way for families to explore reading readiness and social interactions with their child, and families can participate whenever it works into their schedule.

Jen weaves early literacy skills into each aspect of the story time.  Beginning with a welcome song, she emphasizes phonological awareness through rhyming and repetition.  Children pick out their names, or letters that their names begin with, and practice letter recognition.  As Jen reads the stories, she provides narratives that the children can relate to, and lays the foundation for print motivation.  

The library is an excellent place for children to practice social skills.  All are welcome at the library, and there is no expectation for what a child "should" be able to do.  If it is a hard day for a child to sit and listen, that is okay.  If sharing is difficult, or it is a very shy day, Jen will identify the emotion and offer suggestions for easing the feelings.  As children learn the story time routine, they develop a sense of belonging.  When children understand routine and expectations, they learn to self regulate their emotions, even when it is difficult.

Film "Dislecksia" at SC

<- Go Back to Craftsbury Calendar of Events

Film: Dislecksia,

October 16 (Tuesday), 6:30 - 8:30pm @ Sterling College 


Dislecksia: The Movie is a light-hearted documentary with a serious purpose. It gives viewers a better understanding of the condition itself, the problems it makes for individuals and families, the programs that are needed to deal with it and gives dyslexics and their families hope as well as a crash course in how to laugh at their own condition.


In Focus, presented by WonderArts in partnership with the Vermont Learning Support Initiative, is a documentary series focusing on neurodiversity - an approach to learning and disability that argues diverse neurological conditions can be the result of normal variations in the human genome, framing learning challenges as differences rather than as deficits.


$5 suggested donation

Happy Spine Yoga at WW

whetstonewellness2018_0034.jpg

A happy and healthy spine is the foundation of all our daily movements. Is your neck or back a little cranky sometimes? Do you feel tension and stress after sitting at work all day? Are you unsure of how to strengthen your core safely? Practice this safe and gentle class to relieve the tension and stress that is holding you back. An interesting blend of yoga poses, spine education, postural awareness, stretching, strengthening and breath work... all while decreasing your stress! This class is for everyone, even if you’ve never done yoga before.

Kristi is a native Vermonter with a compassionate heart, calming voice, and encouraging and uplifting spirit. She began practicing yoga at 48 years old and was astounded with the changes in her body, mind and spirit. She is not a “super flexible yoga person,” understands the crankiness that comes with aging, and utilizes props to make yoga possible for everyone. After 25 years of providing physical therapy, she pursued her 200 and advanced 300 yoga teacher training with Daniel Orlansky at Yoga of Energy Flow in the Boston area. Her diverse training included Alignment/Iyengar, Kundalini, Meridian, Yin, Restorative, Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra, Kali Ray Triyoga, Vinyasa and Qigong. She warmly welcomes you to join her in sharing this beautiful, ancient practice to find peace, tranquility, and strength to weather all the changes that life brings.
