Find peace (and yoga) in the park

A community event celebrating yoga health and wellness will be held at Marine Peace Park on Saturday, Aug. 29.

Marine Park will be the site of the city’s first-ever yoga event

You’re invited to Peace in the Park.

On Saturday, Aug. 29, the Salmon Arm Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Salmon Arm and representatives from the yoga community will be holding the first of what’s expected to be an annual community yoga event.

“Peace in the Park is an open invitation event for everyone to join us in celebrating yoga health and wellness by participating in a morning yoga session, crystal singing bowl and meditation,” states a news release.

Jim Kimmerly, president of the chamber, explains the yoga event is part of a plan to utilize beautiful Marine Park more often.

“The long- term goal is to create a real top-quality social gathering place,” he says. “If people have relatives in town, they’ll be able to say, ‘Let’s go to Marine Park – there’s always something going on.’”

The Aug. 29 event begins with a community, all-level yoga class at 10 am. For those who are new to yoga, there will be a variety of poses and stretches geared towards all ages and levels of experience. The morning will finish with crystal singing bowls and the remaining time will be dedicated to meditation.

“By 12:30 p.m. you’ll be feeling incredibly refreshed and ready for the rest of your day,” predicts the news release.

Peace in the Park is free, but participants are asked to consider bringing a non-perishable food donation for Second Harvest as the charity of choice for this year’s event.

Also useful would be a yoga mat, sun protection and water.
