Literacy Volunteers-HBPL News: Jan 2018
The board has scheduled two events this spring you won't want to miss. These workshops are sponsored by Literacy Volunteers-HBPL and will be held at Central Library. All monies collected will be used to support the Literacy Program.
First up, a Self-Defense Workshop on Sunday, February 25. During this 2-hour workshop, you will learn basic "street" self-defense techniques. Sensei Anthony Tran is a blackbelt in Shorinryu karate, black belt in shotokan karate and purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He is bilingual in English and Vietnamese, and has traveled abroad and been to 20 states. He has a personal goal of doing JiuJitsu as a guest in all 50 states before he gets his black belt in Jiu Jitsu.
Then in March, plan to attend a Yoga/Pilates class led by Devra Swiger, a Literacy tutor and board member. Devra has been a movement instructor for nearly 25 years, studying dance, yoga, and Pilates; she currently runs a Pilates studio out of her Huntington Beach home. She has worked with everyone from dancers and celebrities to your ordinary person who wishes to get into shape. Devra is certified by several organizations and has been teaching Pilates and stretching since 1999. READ MORE >>
