Antarctica Comes Alive!

An Illustrated Talk by Antarctic Guide and Explorer Ed Webster

 

Wednesday, October 5 at 6 p.m.

 

Antarctica, the seventh and last continent on Earth to be discovered, has always fascinated people. It is Earth’s most remote land—the literal End of the World—a frozen realm dominated by ultra-superlatives. It is the coldest continent (−128.6 °F in mid-winter at Vostok Station), the driest, the windiest—and it has the highest average elevation of the seven continents. Ninety-eight percent of Antarctica is, in fact, covered with snow, ice, and glaciers. But during its brief Southern Hemisphere summers (our winters), Antarctica really does come alive with its spectacular sea life, featuring multitudes of whales, seals, penguins, and birds. Add in Golden Age Antarctic Exploration (think Sir Ernest Shackleton and his recently discovered wrecked ship, Endurance), plus a quick trip to the South Pole—and Don’t miss Antarctica Comes Alive !!

12 - 1 p.m.

 

If you sit at a desk all day, if you are rehabilitating from injuries, if you have limited mobility, or if you would just like a yoga class where you know you are not going to jump from one pose to another…then this is the class for you! This form of yoga uses a chair as a prop. We will practice either sitting in a chair or standing and using the chair for support. We will experience increased strength and flexibility. We will restore and increase our balance. We will breathe and relax. We will not be wearing shoes in class. Please do not eat a heavy meal for at least an hour before class.
