Do yoga for Huntley Creek

CARP – Opponents to a proposed Carp Road Corridor cement batching plant are hosting a month-long yoga series to help raise funds for the fight.

The Save Huntley Creek initiative is holding a four-week mini-series of gentle yoga classes starting Sunday, March 15 titled the Save Huntley Creek Yoga Fundraiser.

Classes will start at 9:30 a.m. at The Village Sanctuary, (4017 Carp Rd.) on Sundays.

Organizers are asking for a minimum $35 donation to “Save Huntley Creek.”

“As a fundraising initiative, we are offering a one-hour gentle yoga class each Sunday for four weeks, starting March 15,” organizers released in a statement. “Unwind from the weekend or set up for the week ahead in this all-levels, gentle yoga class. We will focus on mindful movement, stretching and breath work for a calm to carry with you.”

This series will be available for all fitness levels.

Payments can be made directly to the Save Huntley Creek Gofundme page.

Please email to reserve your space. Space is limited.

The Save Huntley Creek initiative is a grassroots effort that is working to stop a concrete batching plant from being built next to Huntley Creek in Carp. The opponents’ key concerns regarding the placement of a concrete plant next to Huntley Creek include: groundwater contamination; air pollution; the destruction of wildlife habitat in and around the creek; increased truck traffic on Carp Road; significant noise pollution by the operations of the plant and an overall degradation of quality of life to all of the residents in this ecologically and historically important area.
