On Sunday, Sept. 15, the YWCA Northcentral PA is hosting an inspiring afternoon of self-care for women. In partnership with female professionals and business owners, attendees will focus on ways to care for themselves – body, mind, and soul.

Registration is $30 and includes three special sessions. Guests can choose if they want to begin at 1 p.m. or 2 p.m. The event will take place at the YWCA on 815 West Fourth St., Williamsport. 

First, individuals will start with Mindfulness Training lead by Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Lyndsey Stiger. Stiger will lead a calm, centering, and quiet session entitled “Finding the middle path.” This will guide women in attendance on how to balance the anxiety and stress of life to find peace in the midst of chaos.

After that, Buffy Basille, of Epic Fitness with Buffy, is leading everyone in attendance in a low-impact, flexibility workout that is designed to increase self-esteem. The workout is fit for all bodies and all abilities and is intended to bring joy and self-awareness.

The final installment of this afternoon is a unique art collaboration lead by Wine & Design. All participants will contribute to a 6-foot by 7-foot painting that will become the focal point of a new intake and waiting room in the lobby of the YWCA. This intake room will serve as the first point-of-contact for adults who are seeking safety from violence and children receiving counseling. Incorporated in the painting are words and phrases identified by women in the YWCA’s program as inspiring and motivating to them.

This special afternoon is sponsored by the YWCA’s Circle of Champions Membership Society, who invests in the adults and children who rebuild their lives within the transformative programs at the YWCA.
