We hope you are enjoying the warm (okay, sometimes hot!) days of summer. This is a great time to connect with nature and get some much-needed sunshine and outdoor time.
Feel free to come by and enjoy our outdoor space.. We have a half-mile walking trail, a stone circle with a fire pit, a fairy house, labyrinth, and a full-sized Native American Tipi on the grounds. The walking trail and labyrinth are open to the public during daylight hours.
Upcoming Special Events
Join us for a special meeting on Saturday, June 30th at 1 pm. We will be sharing our visions and dreams for the future of KYWC and writing a vision statement for the center. Your input is valued.
Our Mission Statement:
The Kripalu Yoga and Wellness Center of Northern New York is founded on the belief that all humanity is one family and that the Divine is within each of us. Our Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the integration of body, mind and spirit. We support this philosophy through the teaching and practice of yoga, health related programs, and services to nurture personal growth and community.
A vision statement is an aspirational description of what an organization would like to achieve or accomplish in the future. It serves as a clear guide for choosing current and future courses of action. We will focus on the next 5-10 years. Please share with us:
- What is your vision for KYWC going forward?
- What would you like to see happen at the center in the future?
- What kinds of programs would you attend? Teach?
If you cannot attend the meeting, please feel free to reply to this email. Thank you!
