YMCA of Port Arthur, Texas – Gentle Beginning Yoga Class with Gaileee, E-RYT 200
Posted by: Gail Pickens-Barger, E-RYT 200
First time ever to have the Yoga Day USA at the YMCA of Port Arthur, Texas. We wanted to offer this class to the community and to also benefit those less fortunate, by offering the class for free for an oatmeal donation.
The donation of the oatmeal was to benefit the United Board of Missions Food Bank, which in turn, supplies groceries for families in need, in our community.
It was standing room only as Gail Pickens-Barger, E-RYT 200, led a class of 50 participants in a gentle beginning hatha yoga class. It was estimated that for 70% of the participants, it was their first time to take a yoga class or their first time to take a yoga class at the YMCA of Port Arthur.
Literature about yoga & body butter samples were given out to all the participants.
Last Yoga Day USA event is Monday, January 25th, 2010 at Wesley United Methodist Church, 3515 Helena Avenue, Nederland, Texas 77627. Oatmeal donation for a free gentle beginning yoga class. Bring a yoga mat, as I only have a few on hand.
Bring two items of Oatmeal (two boxes of micro oatmeal, two canisters of old fashioned oatmeal, or two canisters of quick oats, only one package of steel cut oats–expensive, or some other variety of oatmeal that is out there).
Then enjoy an hour or so of free gentle beginning yoga on December 1st – 7 p.m. at Wesley United Methodist Church in Nederland Texas at 3515 Helena Avenue.
Don’t have any oatmeal, then a small monetary donation will do! I’ll purchase oatmeal with your donation.
Oatmeal will go toward the food bank at the United Board Missions in Port Arthur Texas. Supporting our community!
Thank you for your participation!!
