Castle in the Clouds launching Wellness Wednesdays

MOULTONBOROUGH — Castle in the Clouds is launching a summer-long program called Wellness Wednesday, with an emphasis on exercise and healthy eating.

Yoga classes will be offered every Wednesday starting Wednesday, July 8, through Aug. 26 at Castle in the Clouds.

Yoga instructor, Kelly Libby of Sacred Space Studio, will lead enthusiasts of all levels in morning yoga on the lawns of the castle grounds. Participants will be able to relish the tranquility that comes from doing yoga in an outdoor, mountain setting. Those attending are reminded to bring their own mat.

Space is limited to 25 participants per session. Those wishing to attend should call 603-476-5414 to reserve a space. Reservations are highly recommended.

Also those taking part will need to use Ossipee Road to access the castle grounds, as the Main Gate will be closed. A trolley to the Castle will meet yoga participants at the Carriage House at 8:15 a.m.

Yoga classes are $15 per person per class, or $90 for a season pass for all eight classes.

In tandem with the classes the Carriage House Restaurant at the castle will be offering a Wellness Special with healthy-dining menu offerings each Wednesday.

Wellness Wednesdays are generously sponsored by Grappone Automotive Group and Huggins Hospital.
