Yoga on the Water

Yoga on the Water-01

This summer’s Riverspace Projects have been unfolding quickly amidst all the other seasonal events and activities. And yet, we’re experiencing great community support for our project leaders and their events. (Thank you, Community!)

Teri McCarthy is a certified yoga instructor that came up with the fantastic idea to host yoga classes outdoors, near water, as a way to celebrate our natural resources and bring locals together for a fun and healthy yoga experience!

Many have gathered (unfortunately this writer was unable to attend so alas, no photos as of yet) to lay yoga mats on the ground, listen to the waters and meditate and stretch with the backdrop of the sunrise. Then later morning classes have been offered for those who just can’t quite pull it together by sunrise. (Good thinking, Teri!)

Next up? TOMORROW,

Paddle & Practice Adventure- Tuesday, August 9 at 6:00 pm. This class requires a watercraft. Bring your canoe, kayak or other (non-motorized please) for a paddle from Crow River Water Access to a mystery location where we will pull out our yoga mats for practice.

Yoga materials will be available but feel free to bring your personal yoga mat if you like and dress comfortably.

Instructor information: Teri McCarthy is RYT 200, trained by Mary Beth Nehl at the Yoga Loft in Willmar and presently in training for RYT 500. She has lived on the river in New London for over 10 years.
