About the CAA
The members of Cape Ann Artisans, while diverse in our art and expression, share a common sense of place on Cape Ann. Whether we were born and raised in the area, left and returned from other places, or found Cape Ann later in life, we draw our aesthetics and our inspiration directly from the color, light, and vistas of our environment.
International Dory Racing Committee Reminder From Erik Dombrowski
Cape Ann Military Support Group
The Cape Ann Military Support Group is "Springing" into action with a special event on Thursday, March 29 at 7 p.m. at the Frank Ritvo Veterans Center, 12 Emerson Ave. Gloucester.
Cape Ann resident, Teresa Tocantins will present a new program called "Yoga Warriors" for all Veterans and their families.
Most people have heard about the benefits of Yoga, but a recent study conducted on our Iraq troops has shown that special yoga methods can reduce PSTD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).
The new "Yoga Warrior Method" is a pro-active way of managing combat stress and improving the focus of our returning troops who may be trying to manage the more silent wounds of battle. Ms. Tocantins will discus how sleep habits, irritability, concentration, anger management, and intrusive thoughts of images, loneliness, self blame and sadness have been improved. It is a way for our troops as well as stressed family members of returning troops to find healing in relaxing.
We are fortunate that Ms. Tocantins has chosen to make this program available here on Cape Ann. Let’s all spring together and welcome all our Vet’s from all wars home to such a great program.
