BAR HARBOR — A local yoga teacher and her students are celebrating having raised more than $2,700 for local nonprofits through a monthly donation-based class.
Karen Roper teaches a Gentle Yoga class Friday afternoons at Destination Health in Bar Harbor.
“In June 2017 our class, which had become very consistent over the past year, decided to designate the first Friday of every month as a donation based class with 100 percent of money raised being donated to a local organization,” Roper said.
“Our recipients have been food banks, A Climate to Thrive, the Parish House, SFOA and many more,” she said. The recipient for June was the Beth C Wright Cancer Center.
