FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New Rochelle, NY (June 8, 2015)
Westchester Yoga Arts, in conjunction with New Rochelle Downtown BID and the New Rochelle Department of Parks and Recreation, will usher in summer and welcome International Day of Yoga with a special yoga event at Ruby Dee Park at Library Green (New Rochelle, 1 Library Green, between Huguenot & Lawton), on Saturday, June 20. Hundreds of participants will gather following the BID Downtown Farmers Market for this solstice celebration and to practice for a good cause.
All proceeds from the $10 donation class will go to the creation of a yoga program at the Boys & Girls Club of New Rochelle.
Westchester Yoga Arts owner Wendy Vigroux says, "This solstice celebration is our way to both come together as a community and to give back to the community."
Yogis of all levels and ages will have a chance to grab their mat or towel and participate in a special class taught by Ms. Vigroux and the studio's experienced instructors. They will also have the opportunity to visit our sponsor village with free giveaways and opportunities to win a membership to WYA, as well as other wonderful prizes, in the drawing that will take place afterward. Among our many sponsors are Nissan of New Rochelle, Village Natural Health Food, Roc-N-Ramen and Recologie.
Participants are encouraged to upload yoga photos to Instagram and tag them #wyasolstice.
To celebrate Solstice on the Green, several of downtown's great restaurants such as Posto 22, the Gnarley Vine, and Coromandel are offering special solstice discounts to participants immediately following the event for those who generously participated. Just bring your YWA Wristband or your donation ticket.
Registration begins at 2:30 at the Library Green entrance on the corner of Lawton and Huguenot. Yoga instruction continues from 3:30 to 5:00. Sponsor village is open from 2:30 to 6.
