MANALAPAN – The Monmouth County Library, especially since the beginning of the Covid-19, has gained a reputation for offering unique and fascinating programs for virtual presentations, bringing activity and concerts into the home. January will be no different as Yogi Master Steven Russell offers Yoga sessions every weekday during the month.
Lunchtime Yoga with Russell will begin the Week of Jan. 4, with Yoga at Home Part One: On the Floor, offered Monday through Friday between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Yoga at Home: Part Two: Standing will be offered that same time the week of Jan. 11, Part Three: Breathing for Well-Being during the week of Jan. 18, and Yoga at the Office the week of Jan. 25.
Russell, who has been a certified yoga instructor for ten years, blends a variety of talents, background, and experience to ensure all participants receive the fullest benefit of relaxation through movement and sound.
A retired professional musician who was affiliated with several parishes within Monmouth County and the Diocese of Trenton, Russell said he can never remember a time when he did not play the piano and learn about composers of the 19th century, learning to play at his grandmother’s upright piano as a young child. He is an advocate of breathing as a form of relaxation, together with sound, which he said, leads to wellness of mind, body, and spirit.
Russell also became a certified licensed massage therapist after retiring from his musical career and uses yoga classes for uplifting and focusing improvements for the attendees throughout Monmouth, Middlesex, Mercer, Somerset, and Union counties.
The series presented through the Monmouth County Library requires internet access and is created specifically for the way we are living in 2021.
