On Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 14, hundreds of people will gather to celebrate Mother Earth and to support “Keep Rockland Beautiful” at 3 p.m., at Rockland Lake State Park. During that celebration, the group will host a unique event — the longest yoga tree pose chain.
A yoga tree pose is a simple stance that anyone of any age and ability can do. All they have to do is put their hands in the air, as if they were branches. The advanced version includes lifting one leg and pressing it against the other so you are standing on one leg. The pose helps improve balance and mental focus.
Keep Rockland Beautiful is encouraging schools, sports teams, and other organizations to join to create a branch to help support it. Adults and teens will receive a set of gardening gloves to commemorate the event; kids will get a fun eco-inspired gift. To register, go to www.keeprocklandbeautiful.org or call (845) 708-9164. Orange & Rockland is a major sponsor.
