Join Susan Lathrop on Saturday at 9am for this weeks edition of Yoga in the Park at Buxton Park.

After recently retiring from a 40 year career as a nurse practitioner, I am happy to share my passion for yoga with fellow Indianola residents. I approached my professional career from a holistic perspective and continue this approach with my understanding and teaching of yoga. My passion is enjoying healthy activities in natural settings: gardening, biking, hiking - and of course – practicing yoga. I hope to bring the unique perspectives of my past yoga classes and experiences in the medical profession to help class participants achieve improved life balance. I hope folks will stop to talk and ask questions as we share yoga in the park on Saturday mornings.

Here's a feel-good story for your Monday morning!

Vintage Cooperative of Indianola residents Jean Schroeder and Arlette Kuehl read about the Indianola Parks & Recreation outdoor bags league and thought it would be a great way to get some exercise and meet new people. Their only hesitation – they would be starting the league without being able to practice on regulation sized equipment.

Jean explains, “At our first night, we had mentioned that we did our practice on a lawn set that was only about 1/2-3/4 size and the bags were much smaller.” Their opponents, a team that calls themselves The Fun Bags, decided to rectify the situation.

Chris & Sarah Short and Jake & Danielle Loughennower made a set of regulation boards and bags and presented them to Kuehl and Schroeder on the last night of regular play. Schroeder continued, “They are even decorated with our team name. We cannot express how surprised and pleased we were by this gesture. It shows the true spirit and sportsmanship of Iowans.”

Join Bethany on Saturday at 9am at Buxton Park for Yoga in the Park!

Bethany combines yoga postures, breath work, and mindfulness into a complete package for therapeutic classes. She first started practicing yoga to help alleviate the side effects of stress and anxiety. The journey has brought her to share those same healing experiences as a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher to those who would like to live a more enjoyable life and have better general wellness. Bethany leads her mixed-level community classes with a goal of others experiencing the same benefits of yoga on the mind, body, and spirit. As a newer resident of Indianola, she is excited to be part of the Yoga in the Park program this summer and to meet others in the community. Bethany practices at Begin Again Yoga.

Can someone tell me the type of tomato that was planted in the Children’s garden at Buxton park! Tiny little things.
Is the snowman activity still happening in December?
We have shoeboxes for Indianola children that otherwise may not have things this Christmas and we have backpacks for Indianola families to get essentials (clothes, health, beauty, bathroom things) that many are doing without right now. Just send me your address and if you would like a shoebox, a backpack or both. Then I will drop off on your doorstep. From there, we will pick up on the 19th of December and have pickup spots as well. Thanks so much and God bless. Any questions, please reach out. https://fb.me/e/3VQImNj31

I'm interested in the Balance & Band classes. I'm 49 so may I still attend? I have lupus but have been cleared to exercise and could truly benefit from this class. Also wondering if it will continue beyond the month of August? Thank you for your consideration.
I loved having Alice’s Chicomeetrics Class workout recorded and on your page Thank you I used to live in Indianola and went to her class. I knew when I moved the two things I would miss most were Chicometrics class and the walking path. And I was right. I would pay for an online class just so I could do a full class with her!!!! 😃 Please think about it
