One Monkey Don't Stop No Show
Beaumont Community Players – Beaumont Community Players present the comedy “One Monkey Don’t Stop No Show” by Don Evans and directed by Camille Briggs and Bryan Brassard. The show performs January 19, 20, 26, 27, February 1, 2, 3 at 7:30pm at The Betty Greenberg Center for Performing Arts. There will be one matinee on Saturday, January 27th at 2pm. For more information including how to get tickets visit our website www.beaumontcommunityplayers.com or call the box office at 409-833-4664. Get your tickets now!!! SYNOPSIS The action takes place in suburban Philadelphia, where the Reverend Avery Harrison, a Baptist preacher, clings tenaciously to his position in the local black elite. His upwardly mobile philosophy is avidly shared by his wife, Myra (whose hilarious malapropisms, however, continually betray her ghetto origins), and by his son, Felix, a strictly brought up private school product who has suddenly discovered the joys of sex, thanks to a surreptitiously studied manual and the cooperation of a local charmer known as "Li'l Bits." Another jarring note is struck when the Reverend's countrified niece Beverly, the only daughter of his lately demised brother, arrives from the rural South with the news that she has been left in the custody of Caleb Johnson, a jive-talking, fast-living, macho type who was the partner of Beverly's father in a disreputable local nightclub. Hilarious complications ensue as the Reverend and his wife find their passions rekindled; Felix and "Li'l Bits" nervously face the prospect that she may be in a "family way"; and Beverly (who is a lot sharper than her country background might suggest) plots her conquest of the increasingly helpless Caleb.

Deep Stretch and Recovery
Ternion Athletics – Join us for our Saturday morning Deep Deep Stretch and Recovery class with Melody Butler Yoga Included with your Ternion Membership or $10 as a drop in From Shape.com "Yoga is for everyone, athletes included. Yoga works on strength, flexibility, balance, agility, endurance, core, and overall strength, among other things. Any athlete could benefit hugely by adding yoga to her or his training regimen. Here’s more details on a few of the perks: Strength: No amount of weight-lifting with free weights will give you the strength that consistently holding up your own body weight will. Flexibility: Practicing yoga increases flexibility and ease of movement, therefore increasing range of motion. In particular, athletes in sports that require swinging action (tennis, golf, etc.) can benefit greatly. Flexibility in general also helps to prevent injury. Balance: Balancing poses in yoga improve overall balance in everything you do, preventing falls and injury. When you learn how to be soft and go with the flow, you can more easily bend and are less likely to break or fall over. Endurance: The endurance that the ease of yoga gives you lends to endurance sports like running, triathlons, and Iron Mans. When you learn to tune into your body and mind, everything can be a meditation—sports included. Yoga also helps you learn how to pace yourself: slow and steady, in it for the long haul. Core: Almost everything you do in yoga works on your core strength. Strong core equals a healthy back and a healthy body. Stability: Yoga helps strengthen all of the little stabilizing muscles that people tend to miss in other physical workouts and are vital in protecting your joints and spine (among other things). Recovery: Yoga also helps put athletes back together after injuries. Again: You’re tuning into your body and giving it the care it wants and needs. Yoga also elongates all of the muscles that athletes spend so long contracting, so it is a great counter-action. Most importantly, yoga changes the way you think and approach everything in life: When you learn to move with ease and stop forcing things, you will prevent injuries and your body will open with your mind, increasing your flexibility all around."
