• Massage Ball Workout—Starting Feb. 8 at Yoga Plus in Potomac;

• Yoga/Stretching For Relaxation—Starting Feb. 11 at Mid-County Community Center;

• Yoga For Stress Relief—Starting Feb. 18 at Long Branch Community Center;

• Mindfulness Yoga and Meditation—Starting Feb. 23 at Longwood Community Center;

• Body Balance Yoga—Starting Feb. 25 at Longwood.

For complete details of each class, see pages 45-47 of our Winter Guide

IT’S BACK! Get chatty with our Chattin’ Up Summer customer service day Feb. 21, where we blitz Twitter and Facebook to answer your questions about summer camps and programs. You ask, we answer, and we’ll direct you in all aspects of finding the best program for your kids and getting registered. Customer service will be available in-person at our office, via social media and phone. Call 240-777-6840 for more information.
