Zumba®Toning - For those who want to party, but put extra emphasis on toning and sculpting to define those muscles!  It works by utilizing the challenge of adding resistance by using Zumba®Toning Sticks or light weights, which helps you focus on specific muscle groups, so you (and your muscles) stay engaged!  By using lightweight maraca-like toning sticks or light weights, Zumba Toning enhances sense of rhythm and coordination, while toning target zones, including arms, core and lower body.

So, join Dawn George, certified dance and Zumba instructor, as she leads you through the latest in fitness fun.  What are you waiting for?  Ditch the workout....join the party!

April 4:  Breathe. Think. Lead. | Mindfulness for High-Achievers

Angie O'Donnell, MBA’92, Master Certified Coach and Co-Founder, 3D Leadership Group

The pressure to succeed at everything can leave an aspiring leader in a constant state of exhaustion. In an increasingly complex world, it is no wonder that mindfulness has gone from buzz word to an essential component in reducing stress and improving performance among top executives, doctors, and educators. Beyond health benefits, for leaders, the practice of mindfulness can bolster emotional intelligence, heighten self-awareness, and provide clarity and focus in decision-making. Tonight, we’ll examine ways to incorporate mindfulness into your daily routine to reduce anxiety, avoid burnout, and position yourself for continued success as entrepreneurial leaders.

What aspects of life have changed the most and what does that mean for the future?
How will our idea of success and failure change?

About Financing the Future

In the Financing the Future series, hosted in collaboration with The Cutler Center for Investments and Finance, we will explore the crucial role of capital in driving social progress.

How will we finance our future? What new financing mechanisms are being created? What role do large corporations, NGOs, government agencies, community foundations, family offices, philanthropists and investors play? What's working? What's needed?

Investing in social progress and managing societal dilemmas is complex and takes time. It requires a new understanding, new forms of collaborative relationships, innovative financing schemes, and the moral and financial courage to put capital where the highest ROI is recalibrated and recalculated to accelerate economic and social progress.
