Prana Prenatal and Newborn Expo Set for October 23 at The Space at Westchester Avenue in Rye
Prana Prenatal Yoga will present the inaugural Prana Prenatal and Newborn Expo on October 23 at The Space at Westchester Avenue in Rye.
“When a family is expecting or newly postpartum, it can be overwhelming for them to figure out what they need to prepare for their new lives,” says Marissa Goulbourne, owner of Prana Prenatal Yoga. “A lot of Westchester County families just moved from the city or out of state and have no idea where to begin. There are so many services ready to help them out, and many are right in their backyard.”
The Expo is designed for local businesses and attendees to personally connect, Goulbourne says. “The majority of our vendors are small business owners and moms themselves, so this event will be supporting local entrepreneurs, and attendees will get insight from those that have been there.”
In addition to the expo, Prana will host 20-minute educational breakout sessions from local experts in the fields of prenatal yoga, childbirth, lactation and perinatal mental health.
For the health and safety of attendees and vendors, numbers will be limited to ensure the venue remains at less than 70 percent capacity throughout the day. Tickets will be sold in timed blocks (10 a.m.-noon, noon-2 p.m., 2-4 p.m.) to limit crowds, and they must be purchased in advance online. There will be no onsite ticket sales.
Cost: $25 per timed block. Location: The Space at Westchester Avenue, 2125 Westchester Ave., Rye, NY. For tickets and information, visit PranaPrenatalYoga.com/expo.
