Recently the Press Repulican featured last October’s Up North Yoga Conference in the article “Yoga stretches to North Country” by Alvin Reiner. The conference was hosted in Essex, NY and was attended by sixty participants. It was great to see Essex streets busy during what many term the slow-season.
“Breathe, stretch, connect, grow.”
Those were the most common words heard during the recent Up North Yoga Conference in Essex, which drew 60 participants from the North Country to New York City, and Vermont to New Hampshire.
“It’s truly an event that is bringing many communities together from the Adirondack Mountains to Lake Champlain,” said Michelle Maron, who along with Robin Shaver of Lake Champlain Yoga & Wellness and The Yoga Tree, organized the experience.
“Yoga is a simple practice to improve the quality of your daily life through breath work, moving, stretching and relaxing your body,” Maron and Shaver collectively emphasized. (“Yoga stretches to North Country“)
The article goes on to explain the details of the conference, its yoga programs, the power of yoga, and it shares a few snippets about and from a couple of participants. Read the full article here: “Yoga stretches to North Country.”
Michelle Maron of Lake Champlain Yoga & Wellness was thankful that the conference was promoted in the Press and had this to share:
“Lake Champlain Yoga & Wellness and The Yoga Tree would like to thank the Press Republican/Alvin Reiner for the excellent article and photos on the Up North Yoga Conference in Essex, NY. It’s so encouraging to see the Press Republican recognizing Essex and this part of the Champlain Valley as an emerging center for Wellness!”
The Up North Yoga Conference will repeat again in 2015, and this time it will be a 2-day event! Keep an eye out for more news—maybe this time you will be participating?
