Default Multi-Purpose Room

Multi-Purpose Room


The room which had previously been the Ministry Employee Fitness Room had, seemingly overnight, been cleared out and refurbished. Where there had once been rows of treadmills, stationary bikes, and other high-tech, magic-powered exercise equipment, now there was space for a wider range of activities.

A cabinet filled with board and card games, both magical and Muggle, stands against one wall. A pair of tables and several chairs were placed nearby. Here, one will find games ranging from wizard's chess and Snitch Snatcher to Risk and Cluedo, Gobstones and marbles to Scrabble, Wizard Skittles, Articulate, Runok Ko, Wingspan, and even Exploding Snap. A few decks of self-shuffling cards can also be found, for those many games that can be made from a deck of cards.

Along the opposite wall, another cabinet is surrounded by more tables and chairs. This cabinet, instead of games, hosts a variety of healthy snacks and baked goods which are restocked...irregularly.

The back corner is untouched, perhaps the only recognizable part of this truly multi-purpose room. A small selection of exercise machines remain, accompanied by a stack of yoga mats and the ballet bar. For those who wish to join their snack with sit-ups or card games with cardio, this is the place for it.

Constant Vigilance! O_O AWAKE!

Before she knew it, Lisa had made it to the end of their yoga practice. Feeling much more relaxed herself, she moved to a kneeling position. "To end today, we'll come into child's pose. Go ahead and kneel, with your knees apart, and bend forward to rest your torso. If you want a stretch, you can reach your arms overhead and rest them on your mat, otherwise you can keep your arms by your sides, reaching toward your feet."

Instructions given, Lisa demonstrated the pose, using the moment to stretch her own arms toward the far end of her mat. It was a nice feeling of lengthening her back, in her own opinion. This was probably her favorite pose, but it was a bit difficult to guide breathing or anything in the position. Her voice just wouldn't carry.

After a minute, she pushed herself back to an upright kneeling position so she could speak. "Focus once more on your breathing. Inhaling, and exhaling. I invite you to relax in this position for as long as you'd like," she said. She shifted herself once more to sit cross-legged on her mat, just as she was when they'd all begun. "When you are ready, you may return to your day, and take with you the centered and groundedness of our practice." She smiled softly, then added. "You are all welcome to return to practice yoga here anytime, the mats will always be available. And thank you for coming."

After one last good inhale and exhale, Lisa stood up and began rolling up her mat. There would be lots of mat cleaning to do after this session.

They moved again, this time with their feet flat on the mat. Well one foot at a time as the other was stretched back and on the ball of the foot with the other knee bent. Simon kept his balance with ease as he had appeared to work out the discomfort in his hand allowing him a better connection to the mat. The auror-trained security man keeping up with Lisa as they did the repetition unaware it wasn’t exactly as planned. First left, then right. Left…than right.

In…out…in…out as they went.

And finally, back to their knees. Child’s pose it was called. Simon inhaled before bending himself forward as was demonstrated, letting his arms fall limply in front of him and past his head. One final stretch of his back in the process. It definitely seemed to help. He gave himself a few minutes in this pose before following up to his own feet. “Well thank you for your instruction,” he remarked quietly to the department head with a smile.

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

Lucas wasn’t looking to retire just yet, Rose! He may have closed in on twenty one years at the Ministry but there were still plenty more years to go! Was he breathing deeply enough? Yes! He fixed Rosemary with a brief and amused look. “I’m doing fairly well with it.” Lucas took a moment to let himself really feel the stretch and was quite in agreement with his coworker: they needed to do this more. “We need to restart our daily yoga routine,’’ he quietly told her. “No matter how busy it gets in the department.”

Balancing? Lucas was sure that was something that could be managed without assistance. There was no trouble following Lisa’s demonstration which made his lunges a drastic success. Heck, his confidence about performing yoga was even increasing. The Quidditch Manager was still stubbornly convinced he did not need to rely on a brick so he continued with the movements without one. That right foot was really pressed upon, then both arms went out then up followed by a really deep bout of inhalation. See, Rosemary? Getting that inhalation right! Soon after, Lucas was switching to his other side to repeat the movements.

They were ending already? Lucas felt disappointment as he sank into the child’s pose. He was kneeling, knees apart and he opted to keep his hands reaching for his feet. Yes, he definitely felt like a new man after all of those poses! The well paced breathing that he was performing was helping even more. He took a full minute before righting himself and turning back to Rosemary. “I feel inspired so much about getting back into our routine. Starting tomorrow?”

Focusing on his breathing made him a tad claustrophobic, like his spirit wanted to escape from his body. Imagining strings seemed to suit him better. If Damian let his eyes lose focus, he could even see them. Strings connecting everyone to the Ministry, and to each other. It was like vines growing on a trellis.

Manipulating these imaginary strings, the unspeakable moved with a fluidity and grace he didn't know he had. After months of doing little else beyond eating seafood and swimming, he had not been in shape like this since long before he joined the Ministry. For a minute, all the stress and anxiety of the last few years seemed to melt away.

Damian felt like he could do anything, a master of his own body. In a world of magic and imagination, it was easy to sometimes forget your physical limitations. The wizard was deep into a lunge when one of those strings connected to his right leg refused to be pulled. An injury from before he joined the Department of Mysteries, that was further exacerbated by his battle with the vampire Bain Goldwasser beneath the Ministry of Magic, reminding him that his past would always be with him.

"Up. Get up." He commanded after he fell, his palms smacking the mat to catch himself. When he finally rallied the strength to get back up, and maintain a strained lunge, everybody else was getting down into the childs pose. Damian couldn't help but give a small laugh before dropping down onto his knees, and leaning forward.

"Breath in. Breath out." There he was. Damian finally found himself present in his body. Big, deep breaths.

Needing a change of scenery from her office for a mid-afternoon break, Lisa still didn't want to go far. She meandered her way into the Multi-Purpose Room, cup of tea in one hand and a selection of magical sports magazines in the other. She took a seat at one of the tables, and rifled through the magazines. Deciding on Seeker Weekly, she took a sip of tea and began to read.

It had been awhile since she'd caught up on gossip in the Quidditch side of things.

Nothing like a nice day to spend working on cardio. A nice break from the office work, why not make use of the practical room that had plenty of gym equipment.

With his growing age, it was important for Firash to maintain his physical figure. Not only for the image of the active sports, but he did have kids home to chase after when they want to play. Towel over one shoulder, dressed in gym wear, he went onto one of the stationary bikes. Pressing a few buttons to set the timer and speed, he got to pedaling.

There was nothing like a fine day to return to the offices. Ordinarily, Firash would spend some time working on cardio. It was a nice break from the office work, so why not make use of the practical room that had plenty of gym equipment. But today? It was a different type of break needed.

Music played as he set up the fruity drinks and tasty treats. The playlist was a mix of pleasant vaporwave, oldie classics from the twenty-first century, and some current music. As for the treats, they included biscuits, donuts, small cakes. But also the healthy foods such as sandwiches, fresh salad, vegetables, fruits, and tortillas to help make their own wrap.

The blonde 21 year old Potter girl was here for her first day at work, bright and early. She didn't want to make a poor first impression on her new boss by being late. So clad in girly, but professional clothes eg ministry robes, but with a pink flare here and there and of course lipgloss Tierra felt dressed. She had luckily not run around too long before she found the lifts that took her down to level 7.

Entering the multipurpose room Tierra had a a big sunny smile on her face as she took in all the sports equipment, and then her boss too of course setting up food and drink. "Hi Mr Grunt!" She greeted before going over to grab some grapes to munch on. "Is this room just used for workouts before or after work or for something else too?"

It was nice having a good get-together with his department. Often, the schedules conflicted with some busy on the field with activities and managing. Then the ones mostly working indoors. Accomodating for all was a challenge, but worth it. Firash was just setting the plates down when he could hear footsteps. It was one of his new employees. Her name was easy to remember, not only on her appearance, but her being related to a professional Quidditch player. She looked to be serious on making a good impression.

"Hello, Tierra.. how are you?" Fighting a chuckle with his friendly smile. "You can just call me Firash," He may already have some grey hairs, but he still thought of his own father when addressed as Mr. Grunt. But she was on the younger side, so he imagined old habits were hard to drop with only addressing leaders by their surname. Very polite. "There's plenty of food here, so no need to hold yourself back." As for her question, "This room is primarily used for workouts, entertainment, and certain events. As long as work is completed or you're simply taking a break, there's no rule against being here." If she had any more questions, he had no qualms answering them.

"I'm good, thank you!" Tierra beamed as she plopped a few grapes into her mouth to chew on. Nodding, she was going to try to remember that her boss preferred to be adressed with his name; Firash, and not his surname at least breakrooms and similiar. "Where does the name Firash come from if you don't mind me asking?" The blonde couldn't help, but ask sorry, but she was the curious sort.

She then helped herself to a fruit smoothie while her blue eyes took in the rooms equipment. "What kind of events or entertainment does our level organize? Is it just events for the ministry or for a broader audience?" Tierra couldn't sing a straight tune to save her breath, and she was just as bad at playing instruments so please Firash don't expect her to be apart of any ministry band of some sort. Starting to sip on her smoothie she wondered where all the other employees of the level had gotten to, was she the only one that read memo's from the DH?
