Corestar Pilates’ Thanksgiving Day Sampler returns Nov. 22

Exercise program and nonperishable food drive open to the public

Get fit, burn calories and support a good cause.

Corestar Pilates – in conjunction with the City of Auburn – presents its 10th annual Thanksgiving Day Sampler, an exercise program and nonperishable food drive Nov. 22.

The four-part session runs from 9 to 11 a.m. in the Auburn Parks & Community Center at Les Gove Park, 910 Ninth St. SE.

Proceeds benefit the Auburn Food Bank.

Ruth Stover, owner and operator of Corestar Pilates, joins other instructors in donating their time on Thanksgiving Day.

The program includes separate 30-minute sessions in pilates (9-9:30), barre (9:30-10), cardio dance (10-10:30) and yoga (10:30-11). Participants can stay for one or all four sessions.

Please bring a yoga mat and a water bottle. Some mats will be provided.

Participants are asked to make a $20 donation and bring nonperishable food items to class. Donations – monetary and in food – also can be made at Corestar Pilates, 205 E Main St., Suite B. Auburn

The benefit has grown in size and support each year. Stover’s studio on Main Street attracted about 15 people and raised under $50 in its first year. Two years ago, the program raised $1,200.

“We would love to exceed our donations from past years,” Stover said.
