Granville Weekend Yoga Encounters Raising Money for Licking Land Trust

He also wanted to give something back to the community, he said.  He explained the inspiration for the concept: “I had just moved my office from Worthington to Granville and started a new brand for my firm. I was trying to think of ways to kind of get my name out in the community. I’ve lived in Granville for a number of years but I never really promoted any business (there).” “I wanted to find a way to get my name out, but not in a traditional sense,” he said. “And I wanted to do something that was a complete, true give-back to the community, with no catches, no strings attached.”

The concept was hatched by Granville resident Josh Dandurand, founder and Lead Advisor of Walden Financial, with the help of yoga instructor Kalee Maloney, owner of Radiant Wild. To date, and over just two Saturdays, more than $500 has been raised to benefit The Licking Land Trust.

In just the first two weeks of the planned six-week series, five to six-dozen participants have turned out for the classes, Dandurand said. Each Saturday morning during the series of classes, participants gather at 10:30 a.m. on the Denison green. Those who wish to donate for the experience, can do so. 

After hitting on the idea of a free yoga class that would accept donations for local causes and organizations, he said he approached some contacts at Denison and received permission to use the green fronting Broadway.  He had hoped, he said, for some interaction with the Saturday Granville Chamber Farmer’s Market if it returned downtown, but noted it of course is continuing to operate from Raccoon Valley Park, post coronavirus. “In the context of the last 18 months or so,” Dandurand explained, “I thought it might be nice to have something focused on taking care of yourself, relaxing, meditating. Some sort of wellness-focus activity, which just is of personal interest to me, as well.”

There was also the factor of a year and several months of living under COVID, and trying to shake off those shackles and their physical impacts, he said. Dandurand continued, “I tried to come up with ideas that would just be kind of cool, things that I would be interested in if I was a member of the community and a business was sponsoring something.”
