They include: Essential Computer Skills for the Workplace, with one course on Computer and MS Word Basics and another on MS Excel Basics; Python Programming and Tech Solutions for Your Home Office.
For just plain fun there is Introduction to Tarot Cards and the ever-popular bridge. Language classes include French, Italian, German, and Spanish, each for several levels of ability. Cooking classes include: Easy & Simple Plant-Based Tex-Mex Recipes and Classic Desserts De-Mystified. There are many art classes for all levels and genres as well as theater, singing and writing classes.
We are probably all sitting too much these days, so there are many exercise classes to get us moving, some of them in person, like FitWalk to Wellness. Belly Dance, Zumba, Buff Bones and Yoga are among the other offerings. There are also sports classes offered in person, including Golf, Tennis and Pickleball at Lake Isle Country Club in Eastchester.
Among the classes for Personal Growth & Lifestyle Is the immensely popular and free Guided Meditation Practice, along with Making Sense of Your Dreams, Virtual Real Estate: What You Need to Know, Herbal Remedies, Home Organization and Gardening.
As you can see from this limited list, there is something for everyone and a great way to use this time to increase your knowledge, your skills or just have a great time!
