Health and Healing on the Avenue

June’s First Thursday was a blast! Thank you to all the healthy vendors who showed Del Ray how to stay healthy, both body and mind! 

We couldn’t have asked for better weather to learn how to keep our bodies strong and our minds healthy. The fitness festivities kicked off at 6pm in the Pat Miller Neighborhood Square with Gong Vibrations presented by Ease Yoga and Cafe! A quick stroll down the Avenue brought you to the Bean Creative Field featuring “Soar” an interactive art project where you can learn to let go of the feelings that can hold you back. This is an ongoing exhibit from June 1 – June 24th! Across the Avenue at St. Elmo’s Coffee Pub, you could test your skills at Parkour with PK Move. One of the highlights from the evening was the listening booth from Counseling of Alexandria, a new business in Del Ray, complete with their homage to Charlie Brown!

Back at Pat Miller Neighborhood Square, kids and adults of all ages were sharpening their Hula Hoop skills before closing meditation from Mind the Mat Pilates and Yoga! These were just a few of the awesome health and wellness vendors that helped make June’s First Thursday an awesome experience. Be sure to check out the full list of vendors and sponsors here and we’ll see you again down on the Avenue, Thursday July 6th, 2017 for First Thursday!

Thank you to Mind the Mat Pilates and Yoga and the Del Ray Business Association for sponsoring this month’s First Thursday.

For more fun and fitness ideas, mark your calendar for the 4th Annual Well Ray Festival on June 24th, 2017 starting at 9am presented by Mind The Mat Pilates and Yoga and the Del Ray Business Association.
