4th Annual Yoga on the Green at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades

More than 250 men, women, children and teens flocked to the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades to attend the fourth annual Yoga on the Green, where JCC master Yoga instructor, Brenda Blanco, led a free, one-hour yoga class on an expansive lawn on the JCC grounds. It was one of the Center’s most well-attended free health and wellness events this year, drawing a diverse and dedicated group, eager to take part in new fitness options.

“Yoga practice is great exercise to improve overall health and an excellent way to stay in shape,” says Barbara Marrott, Director of Fitness and Wellness at the JCC. “We were excited to see so many people of all ages and levels attend, because we not only drew people who are already committed to yoga as a health discipline, we drew families, kids and teens who were trying it for the first time. The JCC hopes that by offering free community events like this, they will be able to provide people with opportunities to discover new forms of exercise. The attendance for this event demonstrates that the JCC is giving people the range of options they are looking for to keep them engaged in healthy lifestyles.

In an effort to encourage members of the larger community to engage in more healthful activities, and to educate them to the wide variety of fitness options open to them, the JCC offers free community events like Yoga on the Green several times a year.
