Yoga and Meditation *FREE* Loving Hands Yoga
6:15 PM - 7:15 PM
Yoga and Meditation *FREE* Loving Hands Yoga - In this class we focus on the present-moment awareness that comes through a focused yoga practice, and we learn techniques for increasing that focus through meditation. We discuss meditation techniques as we practice our yoga poses, and also learn how to "take our yoga off of our mats" and into the rest of our lives by applying these practices in daily life situations. These techniques help us to stay peaceful, calm, and balanced amid the daily pressures of everyday life. Each class ends with a 10 minute meditation practice. This is a gentle, relaxing class; suitable for beginners as well as experienced yogis.

Yoga and Reiki *FREE* Loving Hands Yoga
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Yoga and Reiki *FREE* Loving Hands Yoga – Both yoga and Reiki provide physical improvement, relaxation, stress relief and mental clarity; so they are natural complements to each other. As we flow through our yoga poses we discuss the principles of these two healing paths, and weave the philosophies into our practice. We focus on balancing our energy on the physical, mental, and emotional levels. We end the class with a Reiki treatment during our Savasana pose. This is an active level class, perfect for those with previous yoga experience or those who are already fairly physically fit. No previous Reiki experience is necessary. Every third class is a slow-flowing Yin Yoga class, which helps to open joints and targets connective tissue. The slow pace allows us to have more intensive Reiki treatments throughout the class. The Yin classes help to balance the Yang energy of the flowing classes.

Tribute Concert for the Late Chef Sergio Abramof
7:30 PM
Whether you knew Chef Sergio J. Abramof personally or just experienced the magic of dining at one of his outstanding restaurants, one thing was always certain, he made everyone–guests and staff alike–feel like family.

Throughout his 35-year career, Sergio was an adamant supporter of the budding independent restaurant scene in Cleveland. He was a founding member and president of Cleveland Originals, which then became Cleveland Independents, and proud owner of Sergio's in University Circle and Saravá in Shaker Square. Over the years, you may have attended one of his many cooking classes or chef demonstrations at various local institutions. But his involvement in the industry didn't stop there.

Sergio always possessed a great desire to share his passion for food with others. Perhaps he saw, in many aspiring culinary students, himself as a young boy in Brazil intently watching his grandmother's cooking techniques.

It is with that passion in mind that Sergio's family, staff, and a group of independent restaurateurs have started a scholarship fund in his name at the Ohio Restaurant Association. We believe in the importance of training our next generation of promising young chefs, and we know Sergio couldn't have agreed more.

Our fundraising plan is straight-forward and will provide immediate and ongoing benefit to aspiring culinary students. ProStart is a nationwide, two-year high school program through the Ohio Restaurant Association that brings together students and the restaurant industry in an effort to develop the brightest talent into tomorrow's restaurant leaders. The program provides a comprehensive industrydriven curriculum that touches upon all facets of the industry. Funds raised in Sergio's honor will be used to support the ProStart program at several Northeast Ohio schools, including Beachwood High School and Cuyahoga Community College, among others.

To kick off this collaborative fundraising initiative, we cordially invite you to an unforgettable tribute concert honoring Sergio and the impact he made on this great city. Join us on Tuesday, November 27, 2012, at Pickwick & Frolic, located in Downtown Cleveland's East 4th Street neighborhood for an evening of live Jazz, Samba, and Brazilian rhythms.

The performance lineup includes internationally-renowned vocalist Cyrille Aimée, Cleveland's own Samba Joia led by Brazilian percussionist Marcus Santos, Brazilian Jazz guitarist Moises Borges, Grammy-Award-winning trumpeter Kenny Davis, and more. The doors open at 7 p.m. with the concert beginning at 7:30 p.m. The Pickwick & Frolic restaurant opens at 4 pm for anyone interested in dining before the show, and table-service is available for purchasing food and beverages during the show. Tickets are $50 for general admission. Purchase by phone at 216.736.4242 or online at www.pickwickandfrolic.com, or www.hilarities.com.

If you cannot attend the concert, it is still possible to contribute. Please consider making a donation of any amount possible at www.oraef.org/donate and select the Chef Sergio Abramof Memorial Scholarship Fund. It is a great cause for a truly great man, Sergio Jacques Abramof.
