Attendees should wear comfortable clothing appropriate for yoga, and bring their own yoga mats.

The Office on Women held its first wellness event at Masker’s Barn in honor of Women’s History Month last March. Two more events were added due to the enthusiastic response.

Those who wish to participate in the September event are advised to sign up now. Pre-registration is required online at ucnj.org/womans-yoga.

The Deserted Village of Feltville is located in the Berkeley Heights section of Union County’s Watchung Reservation. Masker’s Barn is a fully renovated 19th century building located at 9 Cataract Hollow Road in the Deserted Village, off Glenside Avenue.

The Office on Women was created in 2016 as an initiative of Freeholder Chairman Bergen. As the first county-based office of its kind in New Jersey, the Office on Women aims to help ensure that women connect with services and programs that enable them to reach their full potential at every stage of their lives, in education, in employment and business, health and in the social fabric of Union County, and to raise awareness of the many contributions that women make to life in Union County.
