New Year’s Resolution- Find Balance in Your Life (Thanks to Yoga Path)

Moon Yoga

Now is the time of year when we go through the (annoying) process of making bold declarations related to our life that we never follow through on- otherwise known as New Year’s resolutions.

2015 is the year to finally break tradition and make good on our promises.

Resolution #1: Find Balance in Our Life

SoSo’s Yoga Path is making this resolution easy to fulfill with their Full Moon Restorative Workshop on January 6 from 7:30-9:30.

From the Yoga Path experts:
“The Full Moon can be seen at the time of reaching the top of the mountain. This is a time when we are able to see both sides of ourselves clearly and any tensions within are revealed at this time. As we are able to see both sides of any issue at this time we are able to work on harmonizing any imbalances. This is an excellent time to meditate with relation to any personal or world issues that may be concerning you.”

This workshop includes props, meditation and aromatherapy as well as the promise of restoring some much needed balance to your life for 2015. Spots are limited, so register today.

The Palm Beach Zoo’s Surprise Arrivals

Babies

Proving that good things come to those who wait, Fred and Wilma, the Palm Beach Zoo’s adult alligators recently celebrated the arrival of nine alligator hatchlings. While the couple had lived together in the habitat for more than a decade and Wilma had built a nest every year since 1999, these were the only fertile eggs. A member of the groundskeeping staff was the first to notice a baby alligator swimming in the habitat.

Guests are encouraged to come meet the first-time parents in the American alligator habitat located in the Florida Wetlands section of the Zoo. The baby alligators, however, are currently remaining behind-the-scenes in the Zoo’s Melvin J. & Claire Levine Animal Care Complex.

No word on whether any of the offspring will be named Pebbles.

Give thanks for our local firefighters at SENA’s Covered Dish Mania

SENACovered-DiSh

It’s time to show our local firefighters how SoSo thankful we are for all of their work during the year. Join the South End Neighborhood Association for their 8th annual Covered Dish Mania on Friday, November 21 from 5:30-8:00 PM at Fire Station #2 (on Dixie and Pine Terrace).

“Before everyone gets caught up in the hustle and bustle of Thanksgiving, this is a nice opportunity to sit down and spend an evening with your neighbors,” says Robert Norvell, SENA’s President. “The kids get to explore the fire station and the adults, well we can catch up with our friends and make new ones.”

Bring your favorite covered dish and submit to the deliciously gluttonous nature of Thanksgiving.

For more information, call Gail Levine at 833-1522
