[WOODBOURNE] – Anyone interested in learning about health and wellness is invited to a free “Celebrating Sullivan Spaces” class on Saturday, June 24 from 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon at Scheinman Park in Woodbourne. The park is located along Route 52 near the Woodbourne Firehouse.
Sullivan Renaissance Volunteer Corps member Amy Neilsen, also of HEALthySELFwellness, will lead the discussion and workshop. The event will include standing yoga and a discussion on mindful eating, nutritious whole foods and mandala. In the ancient language Sanskrit, mandala means “circle” and encompasses ideas of personal physical space and circles of families, friends and community. Each participant will create their own mandala using fruits and vegetables.
This is the second event of the 2017 “Celebrating Sullivan Spaces” campaign, which promotes education and community engagement in Sullivan County’s public spaces. All events take place in parks and gardens that are cared for by volunteers. The gardens in Scheinman Park are cared for by the Woodbourne Action Committee, the hamlet’s volunteer beautification group.
Pre-registration is required for this program as class size is limited. To RSVP and to learn more about upcoming community events and volunteer opportunities in Woodbourne, contact Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445 or visit SullivanRenaissance.org.
Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation with support from Bold Gold Media Group, Fisher Mears Associates, The River Reporter, The Sullivan County Democrat and Thompson Sanitation.
