Mind, body, spirit

The Natural Therapeutics Center (NTC), Inc. of Martha's Vineyard is hosting a daylong yoga workshop on Saturday, June 30. From 8:30 am to 1 pm, hear from three yoga, healing, and energy-based health instructors.

Josh Montoya begins the day with Yin Yoga, which uses postures held for a long duration. Christina Montoya continues with embodied listening, and Heather Rynd ends the workshop with Eastern energetic principles and practices. A vegetarian Indian lunch, prepared by Mr. Montoya, is included in the $65 participation fee. All proceeds will be donated to NTC, a non-profit organization. The workshop is at Island Co-Housing in West Tisbury. For more information, call 508-696-0030.

Youth group to New Orleans

Having already traveled to New Orleans this past Christmas to volunteer their time, the Ecumenical Youth Group of the Federated Church in Edgartown is planning a return trip to continue working on the homes in St. Bernard Parish. They have placed donation jars at many Island locations to raise more money for their next "mission trip." Donations may also be mailed to the Federated Church, P.O. Box 249, Edgartown, MA. 02539 with the notation "New Orleans."
