DC Multisport plans yoga events

DC Multisport has two yoga events coming up led by local yoga instructors.

The first is on Saturday, August 29, 2020. Participants will meet at Ferdinand State Forest for an outdoor retreat led by Fire Horse Yoga. The beginner-friendly yoga class starts in the serene meadows. Then, enjoy a hike around the lake as a field guide identifies wildflowers, plants, and animals along the way. The class concludes with a meditation by the water. Preregistration is required and available at Eventbrite.com.

The next event occurs on Sunday, September 6, 2020, at Market Street Park in Huntingburg. At 7 a.m., Downtown Fitness & Running will lead participants on what would have been the 2020 Heartland Half Marathon course. There will be options for shorter distances if people choose not to do 13.1 miles. Following the run at 9:45 a.m., Erin Rauscher of Yes Power Yoga will lead a yoga class specifically addressing runner’s recovery and mobility at the Market Street Park pavilion. Everyone at any level of fitness is welcome to walk, run, or come to only yoga.

For each event, participants are required to wear a mask at registration and may remove once they get to their spot. Spots will be spaced out. Participants should bring water, a towel and a mat. There are no fees; however, donations are encouraged.

These events are sponsored by DC Multisport, an organization dedicated to building a vibrant, well-connected fitness community in Dubois County. DC Multisport is a welcoming, camaraderie-filled organization that fosters group training, race, education and recreation opportunities among its members while giving back to the local communities. You need not be a competitive athlete to belong and participate; all faces and paces are welcome.
