70th Annual USWCA National Bonspiel @ Triangle Curling Club
Feb 14 – Feb 18 all-day

The United States Women’s Curling Association (USWCA) was formed to promote and conserve the best interests and the true spirit of the game of curling. The USWCA unites women’s curling clubs throughout the United States to cultivate friendly relations among its members and their clubs, to promote international friendships, to preserve the tradition and literature of the game and to hold women’s curling events each year.

The National Women’s Bonspiel is an annual event attended by women from all member areas. The location of the event rotates among the four geographical areas: East, Central, Wisconsin, and West. Triangle Curling will be hosting the United States Women’s Curling Association’s National bonspiel for 2018. 32 teams from across the country will come to Durham to compete. We are looking forward to hosting these ladies. There are sure to be teams from as far as Fairbanks and Seattle in the West and across the country to Boston in the East making for a diverse group of ladies, many of whom have never been to the Triangle.

The format is 10-end games with thinking time and a 4-game guarantee.

Come out and watch what is sure to be some entertaining and competitive curling!

Heart-Opening Backbends: Creating Courage out of Fear @ Global Breath Studio
Mar 11 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

MindBody Centering Yoga backbending practices can be the most powerfully healing of asanas, but there can be so much fear or pain that gets in the way… Did you know that backbending is a form of mental focus that we call courage? Yes, all MBCYoga fundamentals are built on our ability to stay focused. The cumulative effect is called ‘miracles!’

The MBCY method for approaching anything that feels inaccessible is through information and experience. We want to be ‘informed’ about ourselves, and our history is often in our ‘back’, what has come before… what is behind us. During this workshop, we will approach our pinnacle poses by breaking down every aspect of the pose, physically, mentally, neurologically and developmentally so that we can build the pose with intelligence and presence. We slowly acclimate the nervous system out of fight or flight responses that sabotage our ability to focus and be calm. As we learn how to move away from our individual sympathetic response into a parasympathetic state of calm, the poses arrive with patience and breath. During this workshop, we will examine the various aspects of our foundation, the central column of the spine and all of the various ways it moves or doesn’t move.

As we fearlessly allow the whole heart to motor, opening the whole body, the poses arrive! This enjoyable and inspiring ability will create pain free longevity and fearlessness for years to come!

**You must have a physical yoga practice at least 3 times a week for a year to enter this work safely.**

Open to all levels. To register, visit www.globalbreath.org/events.
