Yoga celebration at Ned’s Point

Jul 17, 2019

MATTAPOISETT — This Saturday, July 20, Project Wheel House will present Namasté Day, an event for celebrating generosity through yoga. Free prizes, fun yoga, and a live harpist commemorate the spirit of giving and receiving along the South Coast

The word namasté, often used in the yoga community, means, “to honor the light in another” and for this event, participants will be honored for their generosity supporting
free yoga to the underserved.

Yoga is known to be beneficial for body, mind, and spirit. However, for some people, yoga is not accessible. At Project Wheel House, the mission is to bring yoga to populations who often lack access.

“We wanted to say thanks to the hundreds of folks who come out each week during the summer and donate to fund our free yoga and mindfulness programs,” said founding director Jessica Webb. “This is our way of giving back to those who help us do what we do. Without them, we wouldn’t exist.”

Harpist Jay Michaels will perform while Marcia Hathaway leads the yoga class. Prizes will be given away through a drawing.

Namasté Day will begin at 8:15 at Ned’s Point Lighthouse in Mattapoisett. The “20 in 20” campaign continues each week, weather permitting, through October 12, with the goal of raising
$20,000 over the course of 20 weeks, in order to “keep the wheel in Project Wheel House” turning.
