Coming Up!

by Kate Galer on August 21, 2015

We have had a fun filled and packed programming schedule for the summer at the Park! From our Park-to-Park Bike Ride, to Park Dancing, Mindful Movements, Couch to 5K ( congrats to those participants!), Yoga, Theatre Camp, a Movie and more!

Phew! We hope you have also been able to get out and simply enjoy the peace of the park as well. With the rain yesterday, we hope the plants have perked up a little and it should be a beautiful weekend in Ardmore.

There are a couple fun activities still to come at Linwood over the next week or so:

  • Saturday the 22nd – Sunrise Yoga @ Linwood Park! 7- 8 AM on Saturday!

Early mornings in August, before it gets too hot, join us for a gentle, yet energizing yoga practice inspired by the sun. We provide the mats and the birds provide the music. All we need is you!
No need to register – just come on down! $10 suggested donation. 50% of proceeds benefit Friends of Linwood Park.
Mindy Marcozzi Certified Yoga InstructorSpecialties: Restorative Yoga, Yahweh (Christian) Yoga, and Aromatherapy.
Mindy had always been athletic. As a child, she participated in gymnastics, swimming, and cheerleading, and, as a teenager and college student, she played field hockey and lacrosse. As an adult, she also coached several sports. But it wasn’t until 1998, when she was first introduced to yoga, that she discovered her true calling.
Mindy immediately fell in love with how the practice of yoga was able to connect the mind, body and soul through stilling the mind one pose at a time. She went on to complete yoga teacher training, as well as additional training in Yahweh (Christian) Yoga, Anusara Yoga’s Principals of Alignment, Restorative Yoga, and Aromatherapy. She has also received certifications from Hippocrates Health Institute and the Living Foods Institute, and has been trained as a Raw Food Chef through Alissa Cohen.

Mindy enjoys encouraging her students to grow physically and spiritually through practicing the principles of yoga, both on and off the mat.

  • Friday August 28, 5:30-7:30PM – Linwood Splash Party! We will have the sprinklers going so come on out and cool down! Bring a towel and a picnic dinner! FREE.

 

  • Friday August 28, 7:30-8:30pm: Candlelight Yoga with Noelle Hammerbacher from Hummingbird Yoga

As the daylight, summer, and Hummingbird’s Linwood Park program come to a close, Noelle will lead you through a candlelight yoga practice focused on the moon. Moon salutations and a meditation directed at the night sky will bring you into a deep state of peace, calm, and gratitude.

All ages and experience levels are welcome, and mats are provided for those who need them. If you have a candle you would like to bring, please do.

No need to register – just come to the park. Suggested $10 donation. 50% of proceeds benefit Friends of Linwood Park.

  • Friday and Saturday – OverKnight Theatre Camp! 

-Friday, August 14th, 6:30 PM sign in and snack. Be prepared to be at the Park for at least 2 hours that eve! Then go home and rest up for the next day!
- Saturday, August 15th – reconvene at 9:00 AM to start to put together and practice a play to be performed that evening at the Park! We will break together for lunch and dinner and take breaks as needed – we want this to be FUN!
What:
A theater camp where the participants will write, stage, and perform a play within a 24 -hour period! Run by established Shakespearean actor (and Ardmore resident) Mark Knight. The Friday evening session will include dividing the group into smaller groups and beginning to form the play or plays (depending on how the campers see their ideas fitting the space). Participants will decide if they would like to be writers, actors, costumers, musicians, etc. The Saturday session will include figuring out what the ‘pieces’ are like and working out a promenade order. Each group can rehearse in their area. By 6pm we’ll have a stumble-cue-thru which means we’ll open with Mark’s intro & then he will lead a fake ‘audience to each group for them to do their opening & closing. After that we’ll organize the big bow/curtain-call for the end. Showtime at 7:00 PM! Lunch and dinner will be provided but not fancy, so feel free to bring snacks and/or drinks.
Who:
ALL ages and abilities are welcome, whether adult or child, actor or just want to learn, musician, interested in writing or staging, or just helping out. This is NOT a drop off camp for kids. At least one parent/adult will be required to be with a child or group of kids under the age of 13. This will be strictly enforced, as we want this to be a participatory process and a safe and fun experience for all.
Cost:
FREE! Mr. Knight is generously donating his time, talents, and energy. The Friends of Linwood Park will be purchasing the food.
For more information, questions or to volunteer to assist, please contact Kate Galer of the Friends of Linwood Park at linwood.park@gmail.com
