Darien yoga studio hosts Warriors Week

A local yoga studio will honor the troops and collect money to assist wounded veterans

Elements Yoga & Wellness will host its Yoga Warriors Week from Sept. 5 to 12 at the studio at 354 Heights Road.

The special week will include a silent auction, a by-donation yoga class on Sept. 12 with donations going to the Wounded Warrior Project and a care package collection for items that will be sent to a platoon in Afghanistan.

Lexy Stauffer, manager of the Elements Yoga & Fitness, said the event was inspired by her brother Christian, currently stationed in Afghanistan, and his friend Jason Pak, who was injured after stepping on an improvised explosive device.

Stauffer, a native of Darien, said it started as a summer project, but Yoga Warriors Week has become a labor of love.

“Honoring the troops is an important thing to do,” she said.
