Celebrate the fall equinox
Welcome the fall on the equinox by spending it at the Black Run with a yoga & hike and a drum circle.
Our monthly Black Run yoga continues and we’ll have an adult class led by Ambassador Kimberly K. Friedman, OD and a family friendly class led by Ambassador Maureen Heenan.
After that join founder of Femmelody, Leanne Friendman, for a drum circle! She invites everyone young and old to bring a drum, a rattle, or anything that makes sound to join in on the fun!!
We look forward to spending the equinox with you!
