We have hired a guide to explain things to us.

We will have time to visit the “Garden Argosy” Gift Shop featuring local artisan’s crafts. Trees and plants are also sold here.
Golf cart assistance is available for those truly in need. They can accommodate thirteen passengers at a time. We want everyone to be able to travel. If you feel you need a cart please tell the office when you make your reservation.
Benches Greenhouse, Nursery and Farmer’s Market are celebrating 40 years in business. Today, in over 3 acres of retail production and selling space, they offer 15,000 flowering hanging baskets, 100,000+ potted annual flowers, 25,000 potted perennial plants, nursery trees, roses, shrubs, bushes, plants and gift items.
The family run farm covers 650 acres, specializing in processing tomatoes and pickling cucumbers. During the summertime, the Bench’s operate Bench’s Farm Market, growing their own sweet corn, melons, peppers, cucumbers, green beans, squash, pumpkins, gourds and Indian corn.
What I teach is not a bunch of seemingly impossible poses you see in magazines and TV. I teach a gentle slow Yoga, therapeutic rather than for fitness at Allen Eiry. We are in chairs, standing and going to the floor is optional. Several students remain in chairs with modifications from the floor poses. This Yoga is ideal for inactive seniors or if you suffer from illness, injury, obesity, limited mobility or more. It moves the joints and body increasing body awareness, circulation, digestion, respiration, strength, flexibility, stress management, coordination, balance and more. It does not require any special equipment or clothing. What it does require is your will to have a healthier, stress-free self. Everyone is made comfortable in my class no matter their level of flexibility or inflexibility. And we also have fun. I look forward to seeing and helping you enjoy the benefits of Yoga.

Thursday is the day to join us at 1:00 p.m. to enjoy some pinochle! You don’t have to have a partner, just stop in.
