Relax at the New Haven Public Library

NEW HAVEN - A session on group meditation and guided relaxation will be held from 1 to 2 p.m. Jan. 9 at the New Haven Public Library, 133 Elm St.

The “Break for Meditation” will be led by  Leslie Palumbo ( LCSW) and it is free and open to the public, library officials said in a release.

"Participants will explore with Leslie (shown at right) the sense of peace that permeates everything through energy work and the use of in-the-moment meditation techniques such as inner body awareness, the breath, nature, stillness, silence, and surrender," the release said.
Palumbo is a psychotherapist, Reiki master, and meditation teacher who uses a combination of mind-body approaches in her private practice, the release said.
Also, she has studied with Pema Chodron and Eckhart Tolle, and works with energy modalities in the Usui tradition, the release said.
She is writing and leading retreats, group and individual teachings on the gifts of grief and you can learn more at www.lesliepalumbo.com, the release said.
Library Yoga resumes at the downtown library from 1 to 2 p.m. Jan. 16, with Alan Bitker (shown in bottom photo) offering a 7-week series suitable for most fitness levels, the release said. Classes are $5 each and participants should bring their own mat. Drop-ins are welcome. Bitker is a certified yoga teacher with extensive training in Iyengar, Anusara and Kripalu styles of yoga.
