Lay Down To Rise Up For Poc
Jan 26, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm| $10 – $50
“Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.” – Audre Lorde
The word radical comes from the word root. To pull up the roots of injustice, to be radical, takes energy and strength. We need to balance our outward action by resourcing and nourishing our bodies, minds, and hearts.
This is a Restorative Yoga class for People of Color (POC). Restorative yoga is designed to restore your vital energy, rather than use it. In this extended restorative practice, you will be guided into passive and slightly active poses with the support of props. No previous yoga experience is required. Dress in comfortable clothing with layers for warmth.
Lay Down to Rise Up takes place at 8 Limbs Capitol Hill on the last Saturday of the month. The studio is located on the 2nd floor, stairwell access.
Venue: Capitol Hill, with Mary Imani
Date: Saturday, January 26, 2019, 12:30-2:00PM
