In this session we will experience partner stretches and techniques to improve our ability to relax. This is a sophisticated approach to relieve the tight grip of accumulated stress and tension.

Tornado & Severe Weather Awareness Week April 21-25, 2014

Tornado and Severe Awareness Week (April 21-25, 2014) is designed to remind people of the dangers associated with tornadoes, thunderstorms, flooding and hail and to encourage citizens to take protective safety measures such as developing a personal preparedness plan and putting together a disaster supply kit. Knowing what to expect and the steps to take in an emergency is the key to protecting yourself and your family.

Wisconsin averages 23 tornadoes annually. In 2013, 16 tornadoes touched down in Wisconsin including six during the night of August 6-7 when an EF2, hit near New London in Waupaca and Outagamie counties injuring two residents. The peak tornado season in Wisconsin is April to August, but tornadoes can occur any time of the year. On Thursday, April 24, 2014, a statewide tornado drill is planned. We  encourage your participation in promoting Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness Week. For more information on tornadoes and severe weather, click the link below:
