New York, New York (PRWEB) September 08, 2011
Stonehenge Partners, the New York City-based real estate company, has partnered with Yoga Month to host the first annual Stonehenge Yoga Month Series this September in New York City.
The series will kick-off with a memorial event on September 11 at the Ritz Plaza Fireman’s Memorial Park. A free 90 minute slow flow vinyasa yoga class, featuring live music, will be led for all levels in honor and appreciation of the firefighters’ service.
A family-friendly yoga festival benefiting Bent on Learning is planned for September 24 at Stonehenge Village. With free kids’ yoga classes, music, children’s activities and vendors, this event seeks to inspire healthy living for all ages in a fun environment.
The final event of the series is in conjunction with Yoga Month’s culminating community practice, The Time for Yoga. On September 30, New Yorkers will have the opportunity to take part in this worldwide yoga practice in the comfort and luxury of ten Manhattan apartments. This innovative event will be followed by a celebration of healthy living and community through yoga.
The Stonehenge Lifestyle Department facilitates the company’s agenda to push the conventional real estate envelope through year-round programming. "The health benefits of yoga are undeniable, and Stonehenge has included yoga as part of its Lifestyle repertoire for a long time," said Lesley Schultz, Lifestyle Coordinator for Stonehenge. "When we found out about Yoga Month we were eager to enhance its footprint in New York, knowing that New Yorkers would respond positively toward this powerful cause."
