Open House at Yellow Monkey Village: 2 to 6 p.m. on November 3

The Yellow Monkey Village, in Cross River, is hosting an open house from 2 to 6 p.m. on November 3. Visitors can participate in family-friendly mini yoga sessions at 02Living, dabble in collaborative therapeutic art with Mika McLane, learn about Ayurvedic Wellness with Dr. Somesh Kaushik and explore children's fashion at Tia Cibani Kids, while sipping hot cider and enjoying treats from La Maison Fete. Every visitor will receive a complimentary goody bag.

A creative arts therapist and child development specialist, McLane opened Westchester Creative Arts Therapy in the Yellow Monkey Village after 12 years of practice in New York City. She provides individual and group therapy and facilitates women’s circles focused on self-care and identity after motherhood.

A longtime presence in the Village, Dr. Kaushik's Ayurvedic and Naturopathic Clinic is a family wellness center focused on holistic treatment. Kaushik will be on hand to discuss how he helps restore body-mind-spirit balance so the body can heal itself.

Visitors can also tour 02Living, a community dedicated to promoting a lifestyle, philosophy and culture of health and wellness. It offers integrated yoga, holistic spa treatments and cold-pressed juice.

The Village’s newest member, Tia Cibani Kids, will showcase its collection of “artful children’s wear” designed to speak to kids and parents alike, and Brett Cameron and Deanna Marano, founders of La Maison Fete, will also be available to discuss their professional specialty: creating elegant, seamless events that reflect a client’s personal style.
