Downtown Desert Yoga celebrates 13th anniversary Feb. 10


Downtown Desert Yoga (DDY), 303 S. Alameda Blvd., will celebrate its 13th anniversary with Wellness Week, Feb. 4-10, said DDY instructor Debra Knapp, Ph.D., New Mexico State University professor emeritus and retired director of the NMSU Dance Department.

“We will be celebrating this auspicious occasion with our social enterprise parent, Desert Community Wellness, the nonprofit that we founded three years ago,” Knapp said.

Wellness Week begins Saturday, Feb. 4, with free classes, which continue all week, and special donation-based workshops and wellness sessions, Knapp said.

“During the week, we will be hosting a silent auction with art and crafts from local community members,” she said. “We conclude our celebration Friday, Feb. 10, with an arts/craft market from 4-8 p.m., a fun-filled raffle and the conclusion of our silent auction.”

 The proceeds from the auction, raffle and workshop donations will support the youth and adult community programs of Desert Community Wellness, Knapp said.

All events are open to the public.
