On a Montana cattle ranch in the early 1900's, a domineering but charismatic ranch owner (Benedict Cumberbatch) wages a war of intimidation on his brother's new wife (Kirsten Dunst) and her fey & slender teen son (Kodi Smit-McPhee). Exquisitely filmed and touching on issues of manhood, cowboy culture vs. modernity, and the mythology of the American West, this epic by Jane Campion has been nominated for 12 Oscars, including Best Picture.

Joy through movement
Join our new Spring 2022 series of free, online T’ai Chi Chih® classes for the LGBTQAI+ and gender nonconforming community and their allies.
T’ai Chi Chih is a slow-moving, meditative routine of 19 moves and one pose. Benefits include: reduced stress, increased energy and mental clarity, improved balance, flexibility, and overall well-being. Beginning and continuing students are welcome. The practice can also be done seated in a chair.
Join instructor Linda Robinson Thursday mornings for this
Instructor Linda Robinson has taught T’ai Chi Chih® in Seattle for over 20 years and regularly attends the National T’ai Chi Chih Teachers’ Annual Conference. She has taught in wellness centers, senior centers, Parks and Recreation facilities, and the Lesbian Resource Center.
Join Instructor Kimberly Ivy, founder of Seattle’s Embrace the Moon Tai Chi and Qigong for a free, 6-week Qigong course.
Qigong is a contemplative movement system that is one of the main branches of Chinese Medicine. (The others are Nutrition, Massage, Herbs, and Acupuncture.) There are many variations of Qigong and you’ve likely seen several of them being practiced in the parks or online.
No matter the method variety, all Qigong is a health system that helps us to understand Yin/Yang philosophy, meditation, breath, and movement. All of these beautiful flows harmonize the body, mind, and spirit with nature and provide many health benefits. In just a short time of practice, you’ll find you feel better all-around!
This course will cover fundamental methods of breathing, movement, and concentration. We will teach walking and breathing methods, meditation techniques, and the more active Ba Duan Jin, or “Eight Jewels,” a 2000-year-old Qigong form still popular and relevant today. Between classes, you can practice with recordings you will receive of each of the class sessions. People of all ages and fitness levels are welcome and will benefit from this free course!
Classes are free and open to all senior and older adult LGBTQIA+, their Significant Others, Friends, Family, Allies, or Caregivers.
Join us for this 40-minute movement-based class that integrates full-body strength, balance, and core-strengthening exercises.
Exercises will focus on strengthening the major muscle groups of the body in vertical and horizontal positions for strength and challenging our static and dynamic balance.
In this virtually-taught class, we will use our own body weight using a chair for balance for support and a mat to aid various core strengthening exercises.
Experience with yoga or stretching is not required. This class is designed to be approachable by all populations, regardless of fitness level. Moves in class are broken down in a slow and manageable manner.
The intention of the class is to move a little and have a lot of fun – even if you don’t perform each move perfectly.

Discover your Inner Movement Artist!
Our new Moving with Music class will focus on proper alignment and breathwork to get you in touch with elongating your spine, breathing more deeply, and lengthening your musculature. In this chair-based class, you will be guided through a series of gentle movements and stretches to open up your joints, warm up your muscles, and increase your range of motion.
We will also explore dance-based exercises that begin in a seated position and gradually move to standing or chair-assisted standing. We will work to strengthen your balance and improve posture as we have fun moving to music. No dance experience is necessary. All skill levels are welcome!
