Summer Solstice Yoga & Drumming

The Olean Meditation Center will offer “Celebrating the Summer Solstice with Creative Movement, Sound & Rhythm,” with outdoor yoga and drumming at 6 p.m. Saturday, June 20 at the center, 2275 Dugan Rd., Olean, NY.

Betsy Afton (Yoga Betsy) and Kim LaMendola will offer gentle, accessible sun salutations followed by energizing drumming activities.

“These activities are developed to uplift and energize your own natural zest and enthusiasm,” Afton said, adding “and to awaken you further to whatever makes your heart happy.”

Participants are asked to bring their own yoga mats and any percussion instrument they would like to use.  The celebration will be outside on the front lawn of the center to avoid the use of masks while also maintaining the required safe distancing. A $5 donation is requested.
