The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders is presenting a free yoga, meditation and emotional wellness program for women on Tuesday evening, March 10, at Masker’s Barn in the historic Deserted Village of Feltville, located in the Watchung Reservation in Berkeley Heights.
The March 10 event is the latest in a series of women’s yoga and wellness sessions organized through the Union County Office on Women. It is free and open to all women in Union County age 16 years and older, from beginners to experienced practitioners.
Pre-registration is required online at ucnj.org/womans-yoga.
“In addition to fostering wellness, the yoga series also provides an opportunity to connect with issues that broadly impact women and girls,” said Freeholder Chairman Alexander Mirabella.
For the March 10 event, attendees are requested to bring a donation of feminine hygiene products in support of the organization Girls Helping Girls. Period. The donations will go to help girls who struggle to afford hygiene products.
The March 10 session will begin at 6:00 p.m. and is expected to conclude at approximately 9:00 p.m. It includes a networking session, yoga and guided meditation.
Attendees should wear comfortable clothing appropriate for yoga and bring their own yoga mats.

The Office on Women was created in 2016 as the first county-based office of its kind in New Jersey, connecting women with services and programs that enable them to reach their full potential at every stage of their lives, and raising awareness of the many contributions that women make to life in Union County.
March is designated as Women’s History Month in the United States and is celebrated each year in Union County with special programs and activities. Women’s History Month corresponds with International Women’s Day, recognized around the world every year on March 8.
