The owners and instructors at Ebb 'n' Flow Yoga, like many, were talking about the Hurricane Sandy aftermath. While this area escaped without tragedy, many did not.
Ebb 'n' Flow Yoga is hosting an event on Saturday, Nov. 3, from 9-10:15 at the studio, running all levels of yoga classes from beginners to expert.
"We decided to do a benefit after discussing how fortunate we were in Northborough compared to the flooding and outages in the midatlantic states," said Caitlin Borsini, who is an instructor at the studio. "We thought it would be nice to give something back to those communities hard hit. Yoga is good for the body and the mind, and with this fundraiser it helps others as well.
The cost is $15 for a drop in and there are packages also available. The entire class fee will go to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.
"Part of yoga is about supporting the community and honoring those around us," said Borsini. "Yoga is not simply a physical exercise, so I think it's very important to give back to the community or charities either with donations or with community classes. Many of us are trying to do their part to support the Red Cross or other disaster relief. I'm honored we are a part of that."
