Over two months have passed since a deadly earthquake shook Nepal, but efforts to rebuild and care for the people whose homes have been destroyed is ongoing. On Sunday, July 19, Yoga for Nepal will be held at Locust Grove in Poughkeepsie. The event is intended to raise funds for Direct Relief, a charity highly rated for getting funds to where they are needed most.
Every hour on the hour, from 10am-5pm, yoga classes are scheduled to take place in Locust Grove’s grand ballroom. Classes are open to students of all levels. In between yoga sessions, a silent auction will be held, the profits of which will go to Direct Relief. There will also be a room dedicated to holistic practitioners of all kinds, including chair massage and reflexology.
Admission to all Yoga for Nepal activities is a suggested donation of $35 or more.
