Dr. Homer Ferguson – Emmanuel’s Bach’s Lunch Series

Dr. Homer Ferguson has been the music director, organist, and choirmaster at Emmanuel Episcopal Church for the last 14 years.  In addition to highlighting the monthly Bach Lunch Series, Homer covers the many facets of the musical events held at Emmanuel throughout the year.



Bill Sahadi hosted Virginia Gallagher, owner of Hot Asana Studio and Boutique, John Tampa, Rector of Emmanuel Episcopal Church and yoga instructor, and Julie Tampa, Marketing Coordinator at Penick Village and yoga instructor. In honor of the 5th annual National Yoga month, this was a show about the many facets and benefits that yoga can provide; from what to expect when you walk into a yoga studio for the first time to Patanjali’s Eight-limbed path, it was an incredibly informative program. If you’re never taken a yoga class, you’ll learn logistics like what to wear, what to bring, how to find the right class, and what actually happens in a yoga class. You’ll also hear heart-felt personal stories, and learn how yoga can benefit you – not just physically, but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually as well. Hear responses to frequently asked questions: is yoga a religion? Is yoga only for women? Do I have to be a vegetarian to practice yoga? For people from all walks of life, please tune in to learn what you need to know about yoga!
