Glenside Fire Company #1 is a 100% volunteer Fire Company that has been serving Glenside, Wyncote, Laverock and many other communities for over 115 years. Volunteer Fire Company service is both vitally important to our community and costly. All of the proceeds from the Stop, Drop & Run 5K go directly to Glenside Fire Company for the continued benefit of the community and to help pay for the recent purchase of a new fire truck!
Course Details: Both the 5K run and the 1.5 mile walk/run will start and finish at the Glenside Fire Company Firehouse at 210 W. Glenside Avenue in Glenside. This is conveniently located across the street from the Glenside Train Station for anyone using public transportation. The run will take two loops through the scenic streets of Glenside.

A rejuvenating practice for the beginning of spring. Laura will guide you through an accessible, gentle yoga sequence of movement and breath-work that will mobilize the joints, activate the muscles, and balance the nervous system. Followed by a guided, yoga nidra meditation, known as “yogic sleep”, which invites one into a place of mindful awareness, intention, and deep relaxation.
This class is open to everyone and can be practiced on a yoga mat or in a chair. No prior yoga or meditation experience needed.
What Is It and How Does It Work?
By now almost everyone has heard of CBD and how amazing it is. But what is it, and how do you know if it's right for you? Join Herbalist Paula Billig to find out what the buzz words actually mean, what it does and doesn't do for you, what your ECS is, how to choose best forms and amounts for you, and answers to your other CBD questions. Paula does not sell CBD products, she is an herbal wellness educator for her clients and the public, so this presentation is designed to arm you with knowledge and information as you navigate the broad spectrum of CBD products for sale in the world.
We hear it all the time: sitting is bad for our health. And we feel it too: low back pain, tight hips and shoulders, and sore necks. Learn about the muscles that are affected by sitting and how to release and strengthen those same muscles from where you sit. This workshop includes sitting and standing postures and relaxation techniques that can be done from a chair or workstation. Chair Yoga is a practice for all ages.
Laura Edoff has been practicing yoga since 2008, and teaching since 2012, in private, studio, corporate, and university settings. She has over 900 hours of training and is receiving her Masters of Science in Yoga Therapy from Maryland University of Integrative Health. While yoga is thought of mainly as stretching in the West, yoga is actually rooted in an ancient spiritual practice. At the same time, clinical research shows how yoga reduces stress, improves sleep, and supports the immune system, among many other benefits, while connecting oneself to a sense of purpose. It's the combination of physical, mental, and spiritual health that has inspired Laura to share this practice with others. She works with people experiencing stress, anxiety and depression, insomnia, infertility, chronic and acute pain, and injury prevention/recovery.
