YogaSix Oak Creek

May - Mental Health Awareness Month

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. If you or a loved one suffers from stress, anxiety, insomnia, emotional outbursts or a lack of focus, you may want to consider giving yoga a try. While many people associate yoga with physical movement and flexibility, research also supports the physiological effects of a regular yoga practice. 

YogaSix offers six different class types which range from slow and meditative to fast-paced and challenging. We have classes for beginners and experienced students and our team can help recommend the best classes for you to try.

Chamber members have the opportunity to try your first three classes for $26! Give the studio a call to get set up at 262.432.7500 or purchase directly through the button below.

Volunteer at the Farm

Thanks to the Hunger Task Force, Inc. & all our volunteers from the South Suburban Chamber who came out today to help set a record for most volunteers from a group to date!

By supporting The Farm, we were able to help feed Southeastern Wisconsin’s food insecure populations – low-income children, seniors and families – who often go hungry because of lack of resources or access to healthy food items. The Farm’s success is a community effort, supported by the farmers, donors, and volunteers like yourselves all working together to provide a reliable source of fresh, healthy produce.

Volunteer or Donate Here

As part of a nonprofit dedicated to providing food locally and free of charge, The Farm is wholly donor-driven. They rely on donations for everything from purchasing seeds in the wintertime to fueling tractors throughout the growing season.

MobiliSE & FlexRide Milwaukee
