Yoga: All Levels

$75

with Barbara McGranahan

Calendar Next available session starts Mar 27, 2024 at 6:30 pm, runs for 6 weeks

Yoga is one of the oldest "holistic" health-care systems in existence, focusing on both the mind and body. Through the practice of yoga postures and breath work, you can connect with your body and mind and discover your spirit; yoga is the art of listening to all parts of your Self. Hatha yoga postures linked with the breath have a powerful effect on all systems of the body providing the energy to age gracefully, stay fit, improve circulation and posture, loosen and lengthen knotty muscles, reduce stress, increase bone density, and promote relaxation at the end of the day. Please bring a yoga mat. Recommended props include a cushion and/or yoga blanket, blocks, bolster, and strap. *No Class: 4/17.

Braiding Circles

$25

with Veronica Perez

Calendar Next available session starts Mar 28, 2024 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

Braiding circles is a community gathering workshop focused on braiding a three-strand braid from synthetic hair while conversing about fractured identity, experiences, and belonging. For artist Veronica Perez, it started as a way to create more braids for their larger sculptures but turned into a place for honest and open conversation. The circles came about through the need to create a space for open community conversation and the need to work toward the goal of communal healing through storytelling and braiding. Join us for this special event! All materials included.
