Start 2019 Right with Mt. Airy Learning Tree

Stephanie Bruneau, MALT Executive Director

As 2018 comes to a close and we begin to roll toward January, many of us are starting to think of New Year’s resolutions. What do you hope to accomplish in the next year? Do you want to add a little spirituality to your daily life? De-clutter or detox your home? Finally start that vegetable garden? Learn Spanish, pick up a new instrument or figure out how much money you need to retire? Whether your aspirations are big or small, the Mt. Airy Learning Tree can help, with over 250 courses scheduled from January through early April on topics that literally range from A (“Adventures in Sewing”) to Z (Zumba, of course).

For example: If your New Year’s goals are health-related, here’s the perfect course. Taught by two Weavers Way members, Marin Richeson (a holistic nutritionist) and Karin Joy (certified health and life coach), “Six Weeks to a Healthier You” will guide participants through a series of attainable steps toward healthier living, including mindfulness, nutrition and movement. Starting on Jan. 23, the class will meet for six weeks at Malelani Café on Germantown Avenue, and culminate in a potluck celebration. If this sounds like just what the doctor ordered, don’t hesitate — participants who sign up before Dec. 31st will receive Marin and Karin’s exclusive “Tips for Healthy Holidays.” 

Or perhaps you want to teach a course with MALT — in which case, let us know! Course ideas are limited only by our collective imagination. Our teachers are people like you, who want to share their passions with others, and who believe in community-oriented exchange.

Looking forward to helping you meet your resolutions in 2019!
