Burlington County Model Railroad Club - We call our miniature railroad the Rancocas Valley Lines based on our physical location in NJ. We represent portions of a freelanced railroad that goes from tidewater to mountains, running through the typical stations and industrial areas of a large city, then countryside, while serving industries. We run 5-8 trains simultaneously on a double-track mainline along with several other trains operating in various yards. We ask that adults bring a step stool for children under 40 inches tall.

Getting Yin to the Psoas with Sally Miller
Sally Miller joins us at Princeton IYCC to help participants open the hips, back, and side body in a deep and profound way. Use passive yin yoga postures as well as a few active yang postures to first find, and then release the Psoas muscle. A tight Psoas can lead to all kinds of pain and discomfort, including lower back pain, general tightness in the hips, slouching while seated or standing, and unnecessary fear and anxiety. This often elusive muscle tightens up whenever we feel threatened, and in our modern society, this happens to most of us on a daily basis. Even simple things like waking up late and rushing out the door, or being overwhelmed by the number of emails we have to respond to put us in "fight or flight" mode and causes the Psoas to tighten. The psoas also tightens up when we sit too much or drive too much. Come explore how slowing down, going deep, and being soft can change how you feel on a physical, mental and emotional level. This class is appropriate for all levels. $40 / $35 if pre-registering by January 4th.
