Elkhart rolled out the welcome mat for visitors to the 2014 Elkhart Jazz Festival this weekend, but on Saturday, June 21, a group of 113 yoga enthusiasts rolled out their yoga mats on the Central Park green to participate in the second annual Yoga in the City event.
Misty Love Calhoun of Yamafit yoga studios led the event that was part of the Jazz Festival weekend this year. When asked what it is like to watch over 100 people in motion Calhoun replied, “Oh wow! It’s very exciting and amazing to be the one watching. To see them flow like that ... to see the energy.”
The free class brings together a wide variety of experience and skill levels.
The event raises money through donations and selling T-shirts with the funds raised being given to Elkhart Education Foundation. Donations are still being accepted and may be sent to The Elkhart Truth c/o Melodie Halvorsen.
