The Market at Mt. Carmel

Since June, Let It Shine Inc., which supports local women in need through gifts and small grants, has been using a pandemic-abandoned ball field in Verplanck, NY to operate The Market at Mt. Carmel. Every Sunday, the market creates opportunities for growers, makers and yogis—now including instructors from PranaMoon Yoga, in Peekskill, who lead Yoga at the Market Sundays at 10 a.m.

This donation-based yoga class will be held weekly, rain or shine, through November 1, and everyone is welcome, says Kacey Morabito Grean, owner of Let It Shine.

“This is an all-levels class, no registration necessary,” she says. “Yoga is more vital than ever, and more and more people are finding ways to de-stress and bring in prana. If it rains, we can go indoors and keep the four sets of double doors wide open to overlook The Market and keep fresh air flowing.”

In fair weather, the class is held under a big pine tree, with social distancing. 

“We take every precaution to follow health recommendations, and we have an indoor facility where everyone can wash their hands—plus there are sanitizers on each table,” Grean says. “We are delighted to be able to offer an in-person class outdoors. You can wear your mask during class or keep your distance.”

Cost: Suggested $10 donation. Location: Mt. Carmel Field, 247 8th St., Verplanck, NY. For more info, call 914.323.8343 or visit
