Yoga Storytelling for Kids at Everyman


Yoga Storytelling

catch of the day fish (2)We’ll admit, when we first saw that Everyman Theatre was offering a yoga and storytelling series, we immediately got excited, thinking it was for adults. After all, we love yoga— and how fit, relaxed, and overall healthy it makes us. But we’re also big fans of storytelling– which is enjoying a renaissance thanks to phenomena like The Moth and The Stoop. So, needless to say we were a tad bit disappointed to realize that the only ones eligible for this fab-sounding series are 4-8 year olds. Sometimes it seems like they get to have all the fun.

Baltimore Fishbowl Weekend



Get Up & Go! How Will You Start Your Year?

We’re not going to push the New Year’s Resolutions too hard, because really, it’s going to take more than a day to shake off the last month and fully commit to being our new gym-going, bliss-following, money-saving, only-local-shopping selves. So this weekend, why not ease into the new year with a little bit of discipline and resolve, but also with some self care and a sense of relaxation. You made it through the holidays, and that’s plenty to celebrate in itself.

For those looking to tone up, get fit, or simply relax, Charm City Yoga is of course the place to go for simple, fool-proof yoga classes that are offered so often (and at so many locations) that you can’t fail. Their New Year’s beginner yoga series starts this Tuesday.

Alternately, CrossFit Federal Hill offers a free trial class to new potential members, so if you’re looking for a 2015 fitness regimen that’s a bit more (okay, a lot more) intense, you may want to give them a try.

If your idea of a New Year’s workout has more to do with lifting glasses than lifting weights, Linganore Winecellars in Mt. Airy is offering a barrel tasting and cellar preview today, along with fine international cheese pairings all month long.

Though January isn’t exactly what most of us think of as prime zoo-going time, it actually kind of is. Over the winter, the Maryland Zoo is open Friday-Monday, with admission set at only $10 per guest. And now that their fabulous new penguin exhibit is open, you can go and feel the chill right along with them.

And if the kids are starting to get itchy, you can still bring them down to Port Discovery for their special Winter Break Fun programming all weekend long.

Okay to Play: A Local, Kid-Run Charity

Vasi Argeroplos isn’t exactly your average teen. While most young people look forward to the holidays as a time when they’ll be unwrapping present after present, for Argeroplos, this time of year (and every time of year) has more to do with giving toys, and making sure that every kid– not just those with parents who can afford it– has access to toys, entertainment, and everything else that makes childhood, well, childhood. The Garrison Forest School student was inspired to start her very own charity program after watching a documentary on television about children in orphanages and foster care.
“They did not have anything to play with or enjoy or even learn with,” says Vasi.  “[My brother and I] spoke to our father and said we would love to try to help children have fun, laugh and have something to play with.”
