News Release

For Immediate Release

"Yoga on the Trail"

In celebration of International Yoga Day, join Ozark Greenways for a yoga fundraiser, 9:30 – 11 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 26, on the Old James River Iron Bridge on Galloway Trail! A yoga class will take place right on the historic iron bridge, with gorgeous views of the James River from all sides. It is open to anyone who would like to participate.

Taught by Abbe Ehlers and Sally Larson (RYT-500 certified), this is a class for everyone. Kids under ten are welcome as long as they are with an adult.  Participants are asked to bring their own yoga mat. There will be limited parking, so carpooling is highly encouraged. Parking will be available on the east side of the bridge, and overflow parking will be available at the Missouri Department of Conservation’s Southwood Access boat ramp. From 9-9:15a.m., there will be a shuttle from Southwood Access to the bridge, otherwise there will be walking time of about ten minutes to the bridge from the parking lot.

Cost is a suggested minimum donation of $15 to Ozark Greenways. A matching grant for all donations will come from the event sponsors. Rain date will be the following morning, with the same details.

Special thanks to sponsors, Dynamic Body and Dynamic Earth, and yoga instructors, Abbe Ehlers and Sally Larson.
