Yoga at the Mansion Series Raises Funds for The Rockfall Foundation
A series of five yoga classes held in the Wadsworth Mansion’s rose garden raised $2,700 for charity this summer. The classes were presented by Starr Mill Yoga, who donated profits from the event to The Rockfall Foundation. “Nearly 100 people were able to experience a healthy activity in fresh air and nature because of this collaboration,” says Amanda Kenyon, Grants and Communications Coordinator, The Rockfall Foundation. “And thanks to this generous donation, more community gardens, open space conservation and nature education work can be accomplished.” Sound equipment for the series was donated by Audio Media Solutions. The Wadsworth Mansion donated use of their grounds to hold the classes. The mansion was built by Colonel Clarence S. Wadsworth, who also founded The Rockfall Foundation in 1935 with the mission to preserve land for public enjoyment. Starr Mill Yoga is located in Middletown and offers yoga classes on-line, as well as limited size classes at its studio.
