Yoga Loka hosts its 6th annual Thanksgiving Day Yoga Benefit at 9:00 am. Thursday, Nov. 24.

The annual event, a fundraiser for the Frenchtown Food Pantry, is a two-hour class designed for all level yoga students.

Yoga Loka founder and director Bonnie Pariser will lead the class through movements and positions (asana) designed to open the body and heart to gratitude.

Poet Warren Cooper will again read Thanksgiving-themed poems and prose.

“People return for this class year after year,” said Pariser. “It is really a great way to start the holiday, which can be very stressful for some people,” she said, adding, “especially if they are hosting. Some people bring their whole family to the class, and then go home and start preparing for the rest of the guests”

“This has become a favorite part of Thanksgiving for many of us.” Pariser said.

A donation of $20 is requested to attend the class, but any donation is gratefully accepted. All proceeds benefit the Frenchtown Food Pantry, run by the Frenchtown Presbyterian church. Early donations are appreciated to assist the food pantry in setting up holiday baskets.

For those who can’t make the class Pariser encourages people to consider spending their Black Friday funds in a way that benefits the environment, the food bank and their body/mind/soul.

For each of the first 10 blocks sold with the Black Friday discount Yoga Loka will donate $10 to the Frenchtown Food Bank to help stock their shelves for the busy holiday season.

Contact the studio for discount details and to register for the class. Space is limited, registration is required.

Yoga Loka is at 7 Kingwood Avenue. For more information, call 908-268-7430.
