Introducing Yoga Club to West Clermont

Mrs. Bohannon demonstrates the “tree pose”.

Flyers are hung throughout the building to spread the word about the new club.

 

 

For the first time in West Clermont history a yoga club has been introduced. Every Monday beginning at 3:15 in room 220 ran by Mrs. Bohannon there is an opportunity to learn the art of yoga and how it is beneficial to both the mind and body. Yoga can make you stronger and more flexible. It’s a great way to stay limber and energetic. You’ll also feel more focused and alert. And yoga can help you feel great and function better in your daily life. The goal and purpose of this club is to give students a comfortable place to destress from the school day. In today’s culture we rush from one day to the next, constantly trying to change our health, our body, or our emotions, or to plan our future, yoga opens up the possibility of connecting to what we already have — to who we already are. Come find yourself in Mrs. Bohannon’s room starting this coming Monday at 3:15. No mat needed just comfy clothes and a pair of socks.

Movie Review: It

If you love horror movies then It is definitely for you. You can’t go anywhere without seeing trailers, posters, or just hearing about It. It was originally a book by Stephen King, written in 1986 and was his 22nd book, 18th novel, under his own name. He got the inspiration for the movie after his car broke down. He was stranded and in the middle of nowhere so he walked the way he came to try and find the main road again. On his way to the main rode King passed a bridge and thought about what if a troll jumped out from under like the old fairy tales. But he didn’t pay this thought much attention and got a tow truck to pick up his car. Over the next two years that bridge off and on came to King’s mind. Eventually he began to think of the city he lived and the canal under a bridge in the city. He remember the tunnels that connected to the canal and thought “What a good place for a troll!” He ended up changing the monster to an It so that It can be whatever your brain thinks it is.
