Warren Plogging

Earth Day Plogging – Warren, PA w/ Allegheny Outfitters

Saturday, April 20, 1-3pm

Join us at Allegheny Outfitters in Warren, PA the weekend before Earth Day for a Plogging event! This is a fun way to get outside and do some good for your local community – help clear litter to make your neighborhood safer and more beautiful. Plogging is a mix of jogging and picking up litter, it can be done solo or with a friend or group of friends. Plogging does not have to be done on the run, plogging can be enjoyed while leisurely walking and chatting with friends.

This feel-good event begins with an informative talk by Kara Bemis, 5 Gyres Ambassador & environmental activist, about the dangers and enormity of plastic pollution. After the 30 minute presentation participants will be given gloves to wear while collecting litter together around downtown Warren with a focus on the Allegheny River. After collecting we will reconvene at the store and look at everyone’s impact.

Event is free, all are welcome. This is a family friendly event.

Yoga for Atheletes (Vinyasa Style), Samsara Yoga Center

Thursdays, 6-7pm

I’m back to teaching a regular vinyasa class in Jamestown, New York at Samsara and I couldn’t be more excited. The past year has had me mostly teaching hatha yoga, which I also enjoy, but vinyasa was my first yoga love. Vinyasa is challenging, yes, but that does not mean that it is exclusive. Vinyasa yoga is for people who like to move, work, play and challenge themselves physically and mentally. Classes are taught to a varied level of students with many variations of all poses given.
