Yoga Matters to benefit Lakewood’s ‘preserve-in-progress’

Children from the Lakewood neighborhood with Jamaal Griffin, Children and Family Outreach Coordinator for Lakewood CDC

Yoga for Life/Centered Wellness is hosting a yoga class to benefit the future Lakewood Preserve as part of its Yoga Matters series.

When: Friday, January 7, 6-7:15 pm

Where: 1410 West Morehead Street (just past the stadium and Open Kitchen)
Get directions

The class is free and any donations will support the Lakewood Preserve as part of a Crossroads Charlotte initiative led by Catawba Lands Conservancy in partnership with Lakewood Community Development Corporation (CDC). The Preserve will host a segment of the Carolina Thread Trail and be a resource for neighborhood empowerment, improved quality of life, and protection of natural resources. Since 1991, Lakewood CDC has been working to improve the lives of Lakewood families through a holistic approach to neighborhood revitalization.

The yoga class will be taught by Mary Lou Buck, a longtime supporter of the Conservancy. Mary Lou has taught yoga for more than 30 years and holds a BS in Physical Education and is a certified professional Kripalu Yoga Teacher.
