On a cool Saturday morning in September, members of the Junior League joined the Training Committee for a yoga training at the Highlander Accelerator hosted by Lindsay Decker.
The Highlander Accelerator is a 65,000 square-foot commercial and public complex aimed at connecting the community through education, engagement, and enrichment. The Highlander Accelerator is part of the broader Seventy Five North community whose mission is to facilitate the revitalization of a healthy, sustainable, mixed-income community in the Highlander neighborhood. Seventy Five North works to break the cycle of poverty and community deterioration by partnering to create high-quality housing, thriving schools, recreational facilities and other neighborhood enrichment amenities. By holding the yoga training at the Highlander Accelerator, League members were able to visit this vibrant community and learn more about its mission.
The yoga training was held on the beautiful community lawn where the Highlander has offered free workout classes to the public throughout the summer. All CDC guidelines were practiced to ensure the safety of all participants. The training was a great opportunity for League members to practice yoga and to build strength, awareness, and harmony, in both mind and body.
During these difficult times, the Training Committee is diligently working to hold fulfilling and enriching trainings for our League members that provide the opportunity for personal and professional growth. Keep an eye out on Digital Cheetah for upcoming trainings. We look forward to seeing you soon!
