Cheryl Nogan of Transcendent Yoga Center in Piscataway leads a class during the Nov. 16 yoga-thon for the Franklin Township Food Bank.


Township yoga enthusiasts on Nov. 16 got a chance to work out for a good cause.

Cheryl Nogan, owner of Transcendent Yoga Center in Piscataway donated several hours to lead a yoga-thon fundraiser for the Franklin Township Food Bank.

Nogan said she was motivated to hold the fundraiser after participating in several of the food bank’s “Tour de Franklin” bicycle tour fundraisers.

“I wanted to donate some time to them before the holidays,” she said.

The participants in the yoga-thin were somewhat advanced, Nogan said, so she was able to lead them in some more intermediate exercises.

“Shoulder stands, lots of planking,” she said. “Lots of moves people who are advanced can find challenging.”

The food bank’s Nancy LaCorte said the event raised $450.

“We really appreciate the support of those who contributed, especially Cheryl Nogan,” LaCorte said.

After-workout snacks were donated by Poland Springs and Stop and Shop.
