Get On Your Mat For Mental Health Yoga Event - Wednesday, June 20th on Court Street

Westchester’s popular outdoor mega-yoga event returns this June! The Mental Health Association of Westchester is pleased to announce that Get On Your Mat For Mental Health will take place on Wednesday, June 20th under the open sky on Court Street in downtown White Plains. This energetic and empowering community event features an hour-long open level yoga class led by renowned teacher Sarah Platt-Finger and raises vital funding and awareness for mental health issues and services.

Hailed as “one of the world’s most inspiring mega-yoga events” by Well Good, Get On Your Mat For Mental Health kicks off at 5:30 PM with check-in and registration. Attendees can enjoy live music by guitar teacher, musician and composer David Robles while perusing a yoga marketplace and sponsor exhibitors. Attendees can strike their favorite yoga pose in a photobooth and take part in a social media awareness campaign, telling the world why they believe #MentalHealthMatters.

At 6:30 PM, hundreds of attendees of all ages and levels will get on their mats for the class led by Sarah Platt-Finger, the private yoga teacher of Deepak Chopra and co-founder of ISHTA Yoga with her husband, Yoga Master Alan Finger. “Yoga is often referred to as a physical practice, but it is just as much a practice for the mind as it is for the body,” said Platt-Finger. “In fact, the ancient traditions of yoga see these two as being inextricably linked. When we experience yoga we experience embodiment of all that is available to us in the present moment—images, thoughts, sensations, and feelings— and we merge them into one unified state of consciousness."

For more information and to register, visit Pre-registration is $30; children under 12 can register at the “little yogi” rate of $15.
