Join us on Saturday, April 30th for a day of yoga, therapy and the arts!
As women we are taught to care for others and put our own needs aside, yet we long for an outlet to explore our creative nature and express the full spectrum of who really are. We will begin with an hour-long yoga practice to unwind from the stress of the week. Then we will move into expressive-arts based activities designed to unveil and connect with our inner worlds. Within the safety of a supportive group of women we will give voice to the aspects of ourselves we may have neglected. Boundary setting, self-care, and loving ourselves as WHOLE beings are themes we will explore as well as others that organically arise. Yoga will be appropriate for all levels.
