Group Yoga Classes & Special Events

Yoga Food Drive

Mondays November 12 and 19 from 7:00 – 8:15pm.

Everyone has a story a Thanksgiving food story – whether it’s Grandma who made the world’s greatest pumpkin pie or cousin Liz whose mashed potatoes are quite possibly toxic. Every year we get together and mythologize these experiences over a great big feast.

However, not everyone is able to partake in such jovial festivities. One in seven Americans are living in households struggling against hunger and around 900,000 New Jerseyans rely on Food Banks/Food Pantries for assistance*. With the help of Jacque Castaneda, current 200-Hour Yoga College Student and Lincoln Park Food Pantry Coordinator, we will be collecting packed foods to donate to families so they can craft their own Thanksgiving legends.
