The New Age Health Spa celebrates the opening of their new Cayuga Yoga and Meditation Center on Sunday, September 5, 1999 at 7:30 PM. Included in the evening`s festivities are a blessing of the space, followed by communal song, dance, tai chi, yoga and meditation. A celebratory drum circle and bonfire will complete the grand-opening ceremony.
The Cayuga Yoga and Meditation Center, named for an American Indian tribe who once inhabited the area, encompasses a 1500 square foot studio space lined with 10,000 feet of Western Redwood. Architectural features include a 26-foot-high ceiling, a radiant heated wood floor, and large arched windows offering panoramic views of the deer-filled meadow. A large field stone fireplace, constructed of native stones gathered from the 180 acre Spa property, commands attention at the front of the studio, while a 9`x12` fountain with a life-size Buddha statue in it`s center, graces a corner of the space. A state-of-the-art stereo and climate controlled ventilation insure the ultimate in comfort.
According to Patricia Fahie, New Age`s Marketing Director, “We feel the Cayuga Center offers Spa guests an ideal place to learn yoga and meditation in a tranquil environment. Spiritual practice is an important part of our program offerings year `round”.
