Local yoga practitioners donated $350 to the Williston Community Food Shelf last week raised over the summer during a weekly “Food Shelf Yoga” class in Richmond.

The class began in May at the Isham Barn in Williston before a notice of town zoning violations forced a move to the Balance Yoga studio in Richmond. Former agricultural barns are only allowed to host weddings and farm stands, not classes, the town’s zoning department ruled.

Food shelf yoga continues every Wednesday from 11 a.m. to noon at Balance Yoga, 840 West Main Street, Richmond. The cost is $10 and half goes to the food shelf.
