Yoga Classes Offered On Tuesday Evenings

Denise Duncan saw a need for a Yoga class in Fort Scott and is filling that need.
“Since the Shiney Yoga Studio shut down, I saw a great need,” she said. “There is one with private classes but I wanted a place where everyone could come do yoga.”

Duncan has secured a Yoga instructor, Rachel Henderson of Iola.

“I met this couple from Iola and she was teaching (Yoga)  and I asked if she would teach a class in Fort Scott,” Duncan said.

Duncan is the owner of the Beaux Art Center and is using a part of the building for the Yoga class.

“We meet at our loft apartment upstairs, 102 S. National Ave,” she said.

Beaux Art Cente, 102 S. National Avenue.

The classes are held on Tuesdays at 6 p.m.

The cost is $10 per class.

“It is for young/old, chubby/skinny, beginner/pro,” Duncan said. “You can go at your own pace.”
Participants should wear loose clothing or yoga pants,  and bring their own Yoga/exerecise mat, she said.


Putting Green and Driving/Slicing Mats added to Momentum Indoor Training


To welcome 2019, Momentum Indoor Training is expanding the services offered.

” I am really excited that Momentum Indoor Training now has equipment that allows golfers to work on their game even when the weather is not favorable to be on the course,” said owner Emelia S. Whiteaker, MS, PES.

In addition to the softball and baseball pitching machines and sports performance training. Momentum Indoor Training now has a 4 ft. by 18 ft. putting green, and driving/chipping mat with nets. The putting green is made of an aerated foam technology that mimics the roll and spongy feel of a natural putting green, she said.

A variety of breaks can be easily made using the numerous shims. The roll of the green can be sped up or slowed down using a broom.

One can also practice hitting specific shots by filling one or more of the 6 holes in the green and using the side standing mat which allows you to be on the same level as the putting green.

Golfers can work on their drives and chips by using the mat to hit into the 2 different nets in the facility. There are three different sizes of rubber tees for the mat including one that allows for the use of wood/plastic tees.

Pricing for the use of the golf training aids is:

20 minutes – $7.00

40 minutes – $12.00

60 minutes – $16.00

200 minutes – $50.00

600 minutes – $125.00

“All golfers must bring in their own clubs so they can train as they play,” Whiteaker said. “To schedule, your training times call (620) 223-1803 or send them a message on Facebook: @mitrainingfs . Training times can be any time during the day but times before 3 pm must be scheduled. Momentum Indoor Training is located at 2420 S. Main St., Suite 900 (drive around to the parking area behind Tractor Supply).”
