Women’s Empowerment Free Yoga and Meditation Class Offered in Berkeley Heights on September 25

Union County, NJ – In the continuing effort to support women, the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders through the Department on Economic Development’s Office on Women is presenting a women’s empowerment yoga and meditation event in celebration of the fall season on Wednesday, September 25 at 6:00 p.m., at Masker’s Barn in The Deserted Village of Feltville, located in Union County’s Watchung Reservation at 9 Cataract Hollow Road, Berkeley Heights. 

The Office on Women is collaborating with Girls Helping Girls Period (girlshelpinggirlsperiod.org) in their mission to donate a year’s supply of feminine products to women in need. To assist with the supply of these items, participants are asked to bring a box or bag of feminine products to the event. All supplies collected will be donated to Girls Helping Girls Period.

“This program is designed to help women engage with their strengths and capabilities through yoga and guided meditation. It is a good opportunity to recharge and refresh as a new season begins, while also contributing to a good cause,” said Freeholder Chair Bette Jane Kowalski said.

The program will include:

  • Networking time.
  • A short talk and introduction by Jennifer Erdos, Office Coordinator of the Union County Office on Women.
  • Yoga session and guided meditation by Betsy Sanders (RYT 220, Reiki master, meditation teacher, yoga 4 cancer certified, Yin certified).

The event is free of charge and open to residents age 16 and older. Beginners and experts alike are welcome.  Attendees should wear comfortable clothing appropriate for yoga, and bring their own yoga mats as well as any feminine products they’d like to donate to Girls Helping Girls Period. Space is limited and pre-registration is required online at ucnj.org/office-on-women.

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.
