Yoga At The Refuge: Easy Like A Sunday Morning Bliss
Nov 20 @ 7:30 am – 9:00 am

Join us for Yoga at the Refuge! All levels are welcomed. This will be a slow vinyasa/yin class. Some flow movement with some deep juicy yin holds! Intentional movement progressing towards strength and healing to make you feel invigorated and relaxed.  Breathe in the healing energy of the natural surroundings, heal yourself as you contribute to healing the animals around you.

We will be enjoying our early morning yoga in the nature setting of the Pine Barrens. We will take a short walk on one of our trails to get to our destination. Surrounded by the sounds of nature, the smells of the forest and the cool morning air, it is sure to calm your mind, body and spirit.

Please arrive 30 minutes early at our Nature Center if you would like to visit some of our resident wildlife prior to our classes start time, class will start at 8:00am. We would love to introduce you to our friends! 

Meet your instructor: Monica Walsh – High Vibrations Association

Monica was first introduced to yoga when her mom brought her to her first class that a friend was teaching at a Synagogue in the late 90s. They attended the class because Monica’s relationship to her newly developing teenage body was not a healthy one.  This beautiful, simple, practice opened her eyes to a new path with

which to approach the human condition both on and off the mat. Ever since, Monica’s desire for yogic knowledge snowballed –seeking out classes at local gyms and yoga studios turned into finding highly qualified mentors resulting in a lifelong regulated practice and a desire for something deeper, a taste for something higher than ourselves. For the last couple of decades Monica has spent thousands of hours on the mat at different vinyasa, hatha and 26/2 focused studios.  With a great deal of knowledge under her belt and a thirst to help others, Monica became a Yoga Alliance 200 Hour Certified Teacher in March of 2020 and began teaching yoga at Lavender Koi in Berlin, NJ immediately. Around the same time, Monica was introduced to Bhakti Yoga and began to deepen her knowledge in the ancient Vedic teachings of yoga philosophy. Today, Monica continues to teach at Lavender Koi Yoga as well as Studio 67 in Medford, NJ with the a focus of helping others, not only on a basic physical level in the body, but to also provide students with a tool box for the mind and spirit.

Please bring your own yoga mat as we do not offer rentals. Props are optional. Water will be available for purchase in the Nature Center, we also have a water refill station for any reusable water bottles. 

Limited space is available! Grab your spot before we sell out!

123rd Christmas Bird Count – Volunteer with Us!
Dec 10 all-day

Please join us on December 18th for the 2022 Woodford Cedar Run Christmas Bird Count! This will be Audubon’s 123rd Christmas Bird Count, where all across the world, people gather to count birds! This count data will then go towards conservation efforts to help the wildlife in your area!

Learn more about the history of the Christmas Bird Count here: https://www.audubon.org/conservation/science/christmas-bird-count/history-christmas-bird-count

This will be a two-part event: Saturday, December 10th  at 10:00am for a MANDATORY training day and Sunday, December 18th for the actual count!

All birding levels are welcome! Please bring your friends and family to come together as a team, or come by yourself! Please take advantage of the ‘Sign-up Genius’ below to select your time slot. 45-minute time slots will run from 7:00am to 3:00pm on the 18th. We understand that 7:00am is early, but the best birding takes place in the morning hours! At each time slot, there will be designated walking trails to sign up for or a stationary position where you (the counter) will remain in one position for the duration of your time. Please do not worry; if your first choice time slot is taken, please consider coming at an earlier or later time. Children are welcome, but we require that anyone under the age of 16 be accompanied by an adult.

Sign-up here! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0949AEA62DA2FAC70-cedar

Please wear appropriate clothing for both dates, as these dates cannot be changed in coordination with Audubon’s guidelines. If you have any questions or concerns, please email keith.clayton@cedarrun.org.

This is a free volunteer event, but donations to support our work are always welcome! 

We hope to see you there!
