Hubert’s mother encounters a talking star, a singing frog, and silly sea monsters.

Hubert saves the day by unwittingly tricking the old pirate, and sails away on the back of a duck with the pirate treasure map as Slippery, the giant sea monster, finishes off the pirate ship.

This Spring, NOPL at North Syracuse is giving patrons a chance to center and balance their body and mind. Linda Haverlock, a certified yoga instructor at the Yoga with Linda Studio in Cicero, will be at the NOPL at North Syracuse Library for five consecutive Saturdays starting April 11th  from 11am to noon. The program is called Gentle Yoga.

The Gentle Yoga sessions at the library are as accessible as possible: there’s no cost, no walls or mirrors, no prerequisite fitness level or performance expectations. Everyone belongs, especially beginners. The goal of gentle yoga is to ease into stretches using breathing exercises. “This type of yoga is good for everyone to help release tension and stress in our muscles and other areas of our bodies,” Linda says.

Over the past 20 years in the US, this activity has moved from way out on the fringe into the mainstream. Linda started ten years ago after attending a yoga class taught by a friend. “After one class, I was hooked and began my journey.” Yoga can seem daunting to start, due to the images of hyper-flexible people in difficult poses as seen in health magazines and on fitness television. “Many people think that you need flexibility in order to participate in yoga practice,” Linda says. “Gaining flexibility is what happens naturally when you come to yoga class.”

According to Linda, “Yoga opens up a whole new world as we learn to integrate breath with movement or sitting quietly in meditation, combining mind, body and soul.” The facts are on her side, as yoga has been shown to help reduce anxiety, stress, and tension, and can contribute to lowering blood pressure.
