Yoga Chandra Center for the Healing Arts (Yoga Chandra), located inside the Lady’s Island Marina, will host its annual Ocean Motion event in honor of the nationwide World Oceans Day celebration on June 1, beginning at 8:30 a.m. Area artists, yoga instructors, master gardeners, outdoor outfitters and fishery outreach specialists will join forces to educate, enlighten and provide a creative means of bringing awareness of the condition of our world ocean as well as celebrate the beauty and bounty of opportunities it provides. There is a fee of $20 per person and children 12 and under will be admitted free.
“This celebration began with the intention and beautiful spirit of our late teacher, Kim Nichols Cech, who considered herself a “Warrior for Mother Earth.” In her honor, and for the greater good of our community, we are proud to continue this event, making it more and more impactful each year,” said Yoga Chandra instructor Carol Morrissey.
World Oceans Day is celebrated nationally on June 8 in an effort to show solidarity for the conservation of an incredibly important resource that connects every living thing on the planet. World Oceans Day cultivates a greater level of understanding and appreciation of the ocean. Additionally, it teaches about the wealth of diverse and beautiful ocean creatures and habitats and how they are affected by various daily activities.
