This retreat is reserved those who self-identify as Black, Indigenous, Asian or People of Color.
Hara focused movements: visualizing an inner tree with breath.

A series of simple movements connect the breath and body parts, releasing physical and mental tension, while deepening awareness of the lower abdomen (Hara). The center of this area is known as Tanden in Japanese and lower Dantian in Chinese. Tanden is an energetic activation point, not limited to muscle structures but including organs and neurological functions.

The class includes standing, sitting, and lying down positions as well as a brief sharing period. Please wear loose-fitting clothes and prepare a cushion and/or blanket. A yoga mat may help ground feet.

Dates: Mondays, March 28, April 11 & 25, May 9 & 23; 6:30-7:45pm

Your registration confirmation will include a link to the Zoom session.
