Yoga Festival stretching in support of United Way

Get ready to stretch in support of the United Way Peterborough and District with the third annual Peterborough Yoga Festival.

The event is set for Saturday, June 17, at Del Crary Park.  The Festival – which begins at 7 a.m. with a communal sun salutation – features a full lineup of unique classes, workshops, a kid’s tent, wellness garden and expanded yogi market.

“The Peterborough Yoga Festival is a community event for the community,” stated festival co-organizer Tiffany Nicholson-Smith. “It really breaths everything that yoga is in a lived way; community, inclusion, love, connection, and mostly presence and awareness. And all proceeds go back to the community through United Way, earmarked for programs that align with the yoga lifestyle.”

The United Way says it is grateful to the organizers and their partnership with the Festival.

“An inclusive, strong, and healthy Peterborough is one of United Way’s goal,” stated 2017 United Way campaign chairman Neil Morton. “It seems like a great fit to partner together on this event. My only problem is I can’t seem to find anywhere that sells plaid yoga wear!”

No previous yoga experience is required.

Tickets can be purchased for $20 in advance or at the door for $25 and kids under 16 are free.
