alongside Farmer's Market with Sarah Oakley, Sarah Scafidi-McGuire and Rivka Rocchio. This will be our 15th consecutive year of offering FREE Yoga in the Park! Last summer, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we were able to offer only 4 weeks of YIP. This year we plan to offer a full 8-week season during July and August, including free child care.
We need to raise $1000 to make this happen - can you help?
Yoga Video for Kids
The Yoga Loft has received a matching grant from the Stewart's Foundation to produce a high quality yoga video for kids. Once complete, video will be streamed on demand from our website, free of charge to the public. Sarah Scafidi-McGuire, who has taught yoga to kids for many years and who will soon publish her Yoga for Kids book, will be leading the effort. Stewart's has contributed $300. We are already half-way to our matching goal. Can you help us raise the remaining $150?
Unfortunately, until COVID-19 subsides and we can fill up the studio, we still can't quite meet our ongoing operating expenses which include paying teachers, rent, insurance, utilities, online fees, etc. Donate HERE to keep us in business until the studio can safely operate at full capacity. Or mail a check to Yoga Loft, 21 Miner Street, Suite #2, Canton NY 13617.
