Never-Ever Bridge Classes

Never-Ever Bridge Classes

HAVE FUN AND LEARN WHAT BRIDGE IS ABOUT FROM ONE OF THE TOP TEACHING CLUBS IN NORTH AMERICA!

Never played bridge before but have an interest in exploring the game? Always heard it was too hard to learn? Don’t know how to start? We make learning fun and easy!

You will play card games to reinforce the lesson while laying a foundation to play bridge. You will play basic games on Day 1! All lessons are taught by local Master Players. The instruction is paced for those who have NEVER played bridge or even played card games before! Those with experience should wait until our Bunny Slope or Green Slope lessons begin. Watch the Summit 50Plus website and the Summit Daily events calendar for additional information.

The cost for the course is only $10 to allow you to have a fun “test” drive! Once you have finished this course you will be ready for the next step, our Bunny Slope classes! Come meet new friends and neighbors, have fun and form a love for an international game! Questions or want to register? Contact Chris Dorton (christopher.dorton@gmail.com or 970-363-9580).

Mondays & Fridays, 10:00AM – 11:15AM

Melinda’s yoga classes vary depending on who shows up and what their experience is, and what their expectations are for the day. It is truly a community-centered offering!

Typically, one can expect the practice to include  breathing, moving in coordination with breathing, balancing, strengthening and stretching. The classes begin and end with mindfulness and intention and the students “tune in” with mantras and close with a song. Melinda teaches from her experiences with Kundalini, Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yin yoga, and offers and encourages modifications and even chair yoga.

All levels are welcome. Most people leave a $5 contribution for the instructor as she is not paid. Mats are available.
