‘Sunset Yoga’ slated for Oct. 25 in Cambridge
CAMBRIDGE — Yoga lovers can sign on for “Sunset Yoga at the Lighthouse,” a special session coming up on the waterfront in Cambridge, on Friday, Oct. 25.
Heather Rupp of the award-winning EbbTide Wellness Studio in Easton will lead the vinyasa class outside the Choptank River Lighthouse at Long Wharf. Afterward, the lighthouse will welcome participants to enjoy sunset from the deck while socializing over wine and cheese.
The yoga class will start at 5 p.m. The sun is slated to set that night at 6:13 p.m.
The event is part of a broader series of talks, screenings, tours and more that are being held in Cambridge in conjunction with a traveling Smithsonian exhibit called “Water/Ways” that will be in Cambridge through Nov. 30.
“We’re very excited to be partnering with the experts at EbbTide on a session that is going to engage people with our waterfront and our lighthouse in a new, fun and healthy way,” said Jim Duffy, executive director of the nonprofit Cambridge Lighthouse Foundation, which is partnering with
EbbTide Wellness on the event.
The event also has the support of the Heart of the Chesapeake Country Heritage Area and the Mar yland Heritage Areas Authority.
A certified instructor in yoga and meditation, Rupp plans to include elements of both disciplines in the lighthouse yoga session, with mindfulness touchpoints and themed intention incorporated with yoga to create a session that promises to move the heart, mind and body.
“When the foundation approached me about this,” Rupp said, “it took me about five seconds to say yes. Doing this in such a unique and gorgeous location, it’s going to be a great experience.”
The session is free and open to all skill levels, but advance reservations are required, as the size of the class will be capped at 25. Reservations can be made through ChoptankLighthouse@gmail.com, by calling 410-463-2653, or by finding the event through the Choptank River Lighthouse at Facebook or Eventbrite.
