BATAVIA, Ohio (July 8, 2016) — Clermont County Park District is partnering with Interact for Health and East Cincy Yoga to offer free Yoga classes at Shor Park in Union Township. The classes were made possible through a grant from Interact for Health – Join the Fun program. Certified yoga instructors from East Cincy Yoga guide participants of all abilities through each class.

“The Park District wants to encourage people to be active in the parks as part of a healthy lifestyle. Yoga in the Park is a different and new program to help people to get active in the parks,” said Chris Clingman, Director of the Clermont County Park District.

“Participants in the classes leave feeling rejuvenated and energized for the day,” said Jana Marshall, Lead Naturalist for the Park District. “They are also entered into a drawing with a chance to win Ideal Image gift package valued at $1,000. The drawing is to be held following the final class on Aug. 20.”

The free classes are each Saturday morning from 9-10:15 a.m.at Shor Park. Adults, from beginner to advanced, are welcome to attend. Please bring a water bottle (required), towel and a mat if you have one. Complimentary mats will be provided on a first come, first serve basis.
