Yoga at D.I.G. Farm in North Salem Supports Its Community Mission
On four consecutive Saturday mornings in September and October, Marie Calo, a 200-hour registered yoga teacher, will lead gentle, all-level flow classes at D.I.G. Farm, in North Salem. Part of the class fee will support the farm’s mission of donating healthy food to local families in need and connecting communities to their food source.
The classes will be held September 11, 18 and 25 and October 2, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Beginners and experienced yogis are welcome. Students should bring their own mat, water and any props needed for their yoga practice.
Formerly a teacher with Quest Yoga Arts and Peaceful Warrior, Calo leads classes in vinyasa, yin yoga, children’s yoga and mindfulness, focusing on safe movement and alignment for all students.
“My personal practice and teaching is inspired by various yoga styles, including Iyengar, vinyasa flow and restorative,” she says.
D.I.G Farm is a 501(c)3 nonprofit focused on increasing community awareness of locally produced sustainable food and how to make choices that help rather than harm the earth. It seeks to create jobs and a fun volunteer environment; to strengthen connections between existing nonprofits and the community through events that spread their messages; and to encourage “giving, helping, sharing and volunteerism.”
Participants in the Saturday yoga classes can learn about volunteer opportunities through D.I.G. Farm’s educational and community growing programs.
