On Sept. 9, all across the world, thousands of people will come together to practice yoga as part of the Yoga Aid World Challenge - increasing awareness and fundraising efforts for various charity organizations.
This year Yoga in the Park in Fuquay-Varina would like you to be a part of this fantastic event. Yoga in the Park Fuquay-Varina will be supporting our local Emergency Food Pantry - giving back to those in need right here in our community.
On Sunday, Sept. 9 enjoy yoga under the trees at the beautiful Fuquay Mineral Springs Park, 105 West Spring St., on S. Main St. across from the Fuquay Mineral Spring Inn & Garden. Bring a donation of non-perishable food item(s) to be donated to the Fuquay Varina Emergency Food Pantry. You can also make a monetary donation that day or online at www.fvfoodpantry.com/donate/ .
Gentle Yoga will begin promptly at 8 a.m., so please arrive a little early to find your spot and settle in - no yoga experience necessary. At 9 a.m., enjoy refreshments and a short presentation on the upcoming Yoga Teacher Training Program at One Heart Yoga. Students familiar with basic standing yoga poses can join the yoga session beginning at 9:10am and ends at 10:15am. Classes taught by Teresa Ferlotti of Mobile Yoga NC.
The rain date for this event will be Sunday, September 16.
Bring a blanket, beach towel and/or yoga mat to practice on; you might want to bring an additional “something” to put under your mat if you feel the ground is still too cold for you. Depending on the temperature, you may consider dressing in layers.
Yoga in the Park runs from May through September each year and began four years ago with Charlotte Ranz of Red Elephant Yoga. Yoga on Main in downtown Fuquay most recently organized this free event. Classes are taught by local yoga teachers volunteering their time to provide yoga so that everyone could experience gentle yoga in their own body.
This year the torch was passed to Mira Casile of One Heart Yoga in downtown Varina. If you would like more information about this event please visit our website at http://yogaintheparkfv.weebly.com, or contact Teresa with Mobile Yoga NC at 919-753-3498, email email@example.com.
