Historic Oakland

When Jim Rouse was planning Columbia he took special pains to preserve some of Columbia's historic buildings such as Dorsey Manor, the stone house at Wilde Lake, the Barn at Oakland Mills, Oliver's Carriage House... and Oakland, one of the oldest buildings in Howard County. Rouse wanted to make sure that the people of Columbia understood that the city had roots that must be cherished and protected. To that end, the Columbia Association undertook the renovation of Oakland, also known as Oakland Manor, in 1986. Through the careful guidance of Michael Trostel, a fellow of the American Institute of Architecture, Oakland's beauty has emerged. Managed by TCCA

Yoga Workshop: Tuning in to Inner Wisdom with Brooke Baker

The Happy Yogi - 11200 Scaggsville Rd, Fulton, MD

| http://thehappyyogi.com/series&workshops/ |
Cost: $30 (Monthly Members $24)


With a combination of lecture, yoga & meditation, Brooke will help you reconnect to your intuition & purpose for living with more intention.

Description: When making decisions in life, intellectual exercises only help so much. Our inner wisdom -or our intuition - is an incredibly important voice to listen to. Yet, because we are so over-stimulated nearly every moment of our lives by the bustle of the city, our work, and the needs of people around us - it's hard to feel connected to that very important place within ourselves. In this workshop you will be lead through a series of yoga postures and guided meditations that will help you learn how to tune into that channel so that your inner voice can speak to you all throughout your day.
