Free community yoga practice to be held at library Sunday
January 6, 2018
Bud Werner Memorial Library's community yoga practice puts a focus on on the library's digital collection in 2018. The new year's first practice is from Janet Stone's "Exhale and Unwind" series at 10 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 7, in Library Hall. The free 45-minute practice is designed for all levels to work at their own pace. Bring your own mat and blanket.
The library's free community yoga practice is for all ages, abilities and experience levels and is intended for anyone who wants to build a personal home yoga practice while checking out the variety of free library resources available to help guide you. As a community of yogis, the focus during each session is on a different yoga instructor's DVD, CD or download available through the library.
Participants work at their own pace throughout each session and soak up the support of the local yoga community while absorbing the teaching of some of the world's most esteemed yogis projected on the big screen with surround sound in Library Hall.

City offers free Christmas tree recycling at Howelsen Ice Arena
The gift of giving continues this holiday season as residents recycle their Christmas trees with the city of Steamboat Springs and the trees live on as mulch for city parks and homeowners.
People can safely dispose of their natural Christmas trees through Jan. 31, by dropping them off in the northwest corner of the Howelsen Ice Arena parking lot. Drop-off is available seven days per week from sunrise to sunset and all tinsel, ornaments, lights and nails must be removed, and wreaths are not accepted.
The mulch will be provided to residents on a first-come, first-served basis in the spring as well as be used in city parks during the coming year.
