Yoga East Studio Chattanooga Reconnects With The Outdoors, Earth, And Animals

Wednesday, April 18, 2018

This Earth Day Weekend 2018, Yoga East Studio Chattanooga kicks off a season of classes and community events that reconnect with the outdoors, the Earth, and animals. 

Events will be led by Yoga East Studio's Master Teachers and assisted by Yoga East's RYT-200 Teacher Trainees. 

Monthly Community Pop Up yoga classes launch in April with two events in local neighborhood parks: 

Yoga on Union will be taught by Master Teacher Beth Daugherty and assisting her will be Missy Crutchfield, who is currently in Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga East Studio Chattanooga. The event will take place in the Highland Park neighborhood's Tatum Park on Saturday at 10 a.m. 

Yoga at Heritage Park in East Brainerd will feature Yoga Teacher Amy Plahtinsky who will lead a mid-spring All Levels Flow on Friday, April 27, at 6:30 p.m.  

The Community Pop Up classes are completely free. Donations will be accepted for Yoga East Studio's Community Partner, Youth Villages. 

Back by popular demand, Kitten Yoga, and this year the addition of Puppy Yoga, will take place on Saturday, May 12, at The Wellness Corner at Nutrition World (6237 Vance Road). 

Helping raise funds and awareness for pet adoption in partnership with McKamey Animal Center, Yoga East Studio's Christine Kline will lead Kitten Yoga at 10 a.m. and Master Teacher Gail Donaldson will lead Puppy Yoga at 11:30 a.m. 

Yoga East Studio Chattanooga Owner Jennifer Dixon said, "Yoga East is so excited to begin a season of events starting this weekend with free yoga in the park located at Tatum Park in Highland Park. It remains a studio goal to be an active contributing member to the Chattanooga area, spreading the love of Yoga and raising awareness for local causes dear to us. Keep an eye on our events pages as this weekend is just the first of many local neighborhood events. We hope to see you on the mat soon." 

Yoga East Studio Chattanooga on East Brainerd Road is a partner of Gandhi Global Center For Peace and Gandhi's Be Magazine.
