Rest & Restore is a soothing and nurturing trauma-aware Restorative Yoga class that facilitates conscious relaxation and deep healing. In this class we utilize a variety of props to create a stable and safe source of support for release of body and mind. This is a safe and suitable class for people with chronic pain, injuries, and/or medical conditions. No prior experience necessary. Come as you are. $56/4 class pass or $16 drop-in. No one turned away for lack of funds.
Movement for the Movement is a subtle practice of moving through the layers of the inner body utilizing gentle and restorative yoga asana, creative movement, and somatic practice to unravel and unwind stuck or sticky places in the body/mind. We will attune to positive resource within and around us as we explore ways to cultivate increased resilience through radical embodiment. We will gather together around music and movement practice to counter burn-out and related creative and somatic stagnation, and build resiliency.
When we engage with liberatory movement practice, we resist disembodiment and isolation, affirm embodiment, creativity, and communal connectivity. This practice invites you to explore how your body wants to move - to shake things up, let go of tension and stress, and simply reconnect to your animal body and what it needs to organically unfurl.
This facilitated practice space offers social change leaders, activists, organizers, educators, caregivers, and healers an accessible space to experience empowering body love, and is intentionally supportive of all gender expressions, sexual orientations, dis/abilities, racial identities, class backgrounds, and learning styles.
No previous experience with dance or movement required. All are welcome - come as you are. Sliding scale: $5-$15. No one turned away for lack of funds.*
*It is important to me to make my classes accessible and affordable to everyone. For this class I am offering a sliding scale and ask that you discern where you fall on it. A way of thinking about it is if you can afford to buy plane tickets, own a home, are gainfully employed, you fall on the high end. If you have to choose between groceries or rent and accessing wellness and healing arts support, you would pay on the lower end. I see my community-based embodiment offerings as part of my activism and social justice leadership. Much of my work is done for free, so by paying what you are able, you are helping more folks access this important practice space. THANK YOU!
