  • AN IMPORTANT NOTE ON ONLINE CLASSES

    • Always make sure that your doctor approves of any exercise classes that you are taking. It is very important that in any exercise program (even seated) that you wear good, supportive footwear. During standing exercises be careful that you can hold on to something stable (not a moving chair) if you need to. It's important to be fully focused on your exercise class - please don't take or make phone calls during this time or eat during the exercise program.

Do you have problems with your balance? Good balance is important at any age, but particularly as we get older. Peggy Levine”s Balance Training class uses multiple methods to help you improve your balance. From sitting to strengthen the core muscles of the torso and flexibility to strengthening exercises for the feet. The class also does balance movements standing in front, behind, and beside a chair, sometimes on two feet, and sometimes on one foot. This class will help you to become more stable when walking or even just standing to help to prevent falls.

Peggy Levine teachers numerous balance and pilates classes. She also has the following certifications: Exercise Etc. Programs for Older Adults, Senior Fitness Specialist, ACE Group Fitness, and SCW Pilates instructor.

Yayoi Kusama

The Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama has become a cultural icon, one of the most successful living artists who mesmerizes international audiences with her magical immersive infinity spaces, pumpkin sculptures and colorful paintings. This year, 2021, the Bronx Botanic Garden is celebrating her with a comprehensive exhibition, but between 1958-1972 she was omnipresent in NY, an active member of the young artist generation that challenged society with nude performances, peace demonstrations and brandnew directions in art. While courageously battling mental illness, actually embracing it with all her might, she carved out her niche as an artist and continues to inspire millions!

Mary Cassatt – American Impressionist
Register Here - https://bit.ly/artlecture

Mary Cassatt is amongst the most important and innovative American Impressionist painters who lived as an ex-pat in Paris, working closely with Edgar Degas and other leading artists of the time, exploring new modern techniques in printing techniques and the use of pastel. She also played a leading role in the creation of American art collections like that of the Havemayer family, now part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. While her work is extremely beautiful and relatable in its depiction of women and children, her approach was quite progressive and even feminist in many ways and she even contributed to the women’s building at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893!
