Ev­ery Body Yoga to of­fer classes for camp do­na­tions

Record Observer - - News -

CENTREVILLE — Ev­ery Body Yoga will be of fer­ing a week­end of do­na­tion-based yoga classes March 17 to 19 at its Centreville stu­dio, 205 E. Wa­ter St. All do­na­tions go to the Queen Anne’s County Fam­ily YMCA’s sum­mer camp fund. Par­tic­i­pants are asked to give what­ever amount they feel is right.

Sum­mer has many iconic as­so­ci­a­tions: long, hot days; catch­ing fire­flies at dusk; sun­burns sit­ting pool­side. Time at a sum­mer camp could be one of the most mem­o­rable events of the hia­tus from school. Camp pro­vides a safe space for kids to ex­per­i­ment — to try out new things that are not in their com­fort zone, un­der the su­per­vi­sion of a car­ing men­tor — they make new friends, helps them build so­cial skills through team­work based ac­tiv­i­ties and helps pre­pare them to lead brighter, more fo­cused lives as they grow.

This ex­pe­ri­ence isn’t guar­an­teed to all kids. Many fam­i­lies are fi­nan­cially un­able to send their chil­dren to camp. The Queen Anne’s County Fam­ily YMCA is step­ping in to make sure kids who want to go to camp have that op­por­tu­nity. In 2016, one out of four kids who at­tended their camps re­quired fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance.

Lo­cated at The Gun­ston School, the Queen Anne’s County YMCA’s sum­mer camp of­fers a wide ar­ray of ac­tiv­i­ties from field and wa­ter sports to arts, aca­demics, en­vi­ron­men­tal and cul­tural ex­pe­ri­ences. The YMCA, as a whole, has a phi­los­o­phy that it doesn’t turn any­one away. With this idea in mind, Ev­ery Body Yoga, has de­cided to tr y and help raise funds for this pro­gram.

The week­end kicks off with Foun­da­tions of Yoga at 6:30 p.m. Fri­day, March 17. Satur­day of­fers three classes: Chakra Open­ing at 9 a.m., Yoga Flow at 10:30 a.m. and Chair Yoga at 1 p.m. Rise-n-Shine yoga class will take place at 9 a.m. Sun­day morn­ing. Each class will be an hour long and will be taught by one of Ev­ery Body Yoga’s teacher trainees.

Ev­ery Body Yoga of­fers group and pri­vate in­struc­tion, stress man­age­ment and wellness work­shops, as well as a Yoga Teacher Train­ing Pro­gram. It is the only reg­is­tered yoga school on the Eastern Shore.

In­struc­tion is pro­vided by yoga teacher trainer Phyl­lis John­ston. John­ston has 30 years of yoga ex­pe­ri­ence and Ev­ery Body Yoga has been serv­ing the Mid-Shore since Jan­uary 2000.
