April 16, 2020 Moonshine Minutes


Part #1:

Good morning, everyone. I’m Becca Loux, news reporter and editor for Moonshine Ink here with your daily dose of Moonshine Minutes. 


Zoom yoga, distance learning schemes, and virtual art class … the “stay at home” order and this pandemic have redefined “activities” in Tahoe/Truckee and beyond. 

This month’s TAP calendar looked a little different than usual, but we’re impressed with all the innovation it took to move so many events to the digital realm. 

On April 18, get wordy with the Sierra Poetry Festival — an all-day event full of workshops, readings, and virtual inspiration. See the full schedule, and sign up for free, at sierrapoetryfestival.org. 

Next week, curl up next to the fire for the 5th annual Wild and Scenic Film Festival, hosted locally and virtually by the Sierra Nevada Alliance. Virtual festival-goers will be able to watch a multitude of award-winning environmental and adventure films between April 22 and 26. Visit sierranevadaalliance.org for more information.

Staying in doesn’t mean being a couch potato: live stream Tahoe Mountain Fitness classes via Zoom including The Trip, Body Combat, Body Pump, pilates, and more. Info at tahoemountainfit.com. Take Bar Effect classes for $8 a piece as well, seven days a week. Find out more at thebareffect.com. Liv Studio is also offering dance and pilates classes; for reservations go to livstudiotruckee.com. Speaking of dance, InnerRhythyms virtual classes are available at innerrhythyms.org. 

And for kids who want to move and groove, Miss Cami out of Incline Village is hosting digital dance classes for kids ages 4 to 8. These classes are tap and ballet-focused, and a great way to shake off cabin fever. The classes are pay-what-you-can, and donations are welcomed. Classes are held on a weekly basis. Search for Digital Dance with Cami on Facebook. 

For Goodness Sake is offering online meditation Mondays with John Weedn and World Healing Meditation Wednesdays. Visit goodnesssake.org/events.

From the virtual to the physical: Our tangible, touchable, pick-up-able using-proper-distancing-from-others print edition is on stands now. When history looks back at an odd era complete with untouched powder and shuttered businesses, Moonshine’s stay at home edition will mark the days and weeks we spent apart, yet in other ways closer and more connected. We cover the coronavirus in full: the local and global history, Tahoe/Truckee visual story in photos, how you can be of service to others at this time, glints of hope, and even a sprinkling of humor. We gotta laugh, right? Get yours at a Moon Box near you. Happy Thursday, happy spring (is it the fourth or the fifth one this year?), and as always, look for your moments of zen.
