WORLD YOGA DAY EVENT TO BENEFIT THE WESTFIELD AREA YMCA’S ANNUAL SUPPORT CAMPAIGN @ Main Y Facility
Feb 26 @ 3:15 pm – 5:15 pm

The Westfield Area YMCA invites the community to celebrate World Yoga Day with a theme of “Peaceful Warrior,” on Sunday, February 26th from 3:15 pm-5:15pm in the Weldon Room located at the Main Y Facility, 220 Clark Street.

Participants will focus on achieving and sharing inner peace using calming breathing techniques and soothing yoga meditation.  This will be followed by a choice of yoga practice – restorative, chair yoga or lively asanas.  All will come together for powerful Yoga nidra (deep relaxation) and a time for discussion.  This special event is appropriate for first-time yoga attendees as well as those who have been practicing for many years.

A $25 contribution benefits the Y’s Annual Support Campaign for strong kids, families and seniors.  Thanks to the Annual Support Campaign, each year the Westfield Area Y provides over $400,000 in direct financial assistance to individuals and families in need to enable their participation at the Y.  Approximately 88% of scholarship awards enable children to attend child care and day camp programs while approximately 12% supports membership and program participation.

Advanced registration is recommended.  Interested participants can register online at www.westfieldynj.org or at the Main Y Welcome Center, 220 Clark Street.  Please contact Jean White at (908) 233-2700 x246 or [email protected] any questions.
