⚛ To be in a home in your body is a human right as well as an immense gift and privilege.

⚛ To move in a way that feels seen and supported.

⚛ To feel your breath and down-regulate your nervous system.

⚛ We are here to support you and your path of wellness.

We recognize that the Asanas are only ONE facet of a yogic practice. We are grateful for the opportunity to explore our mind-body connection in a space that endeavors to support our gender diverse community, as many of us within the community have challenged relationships with this connection.

Please download the Zoom app on your device before the class. Please also mute your mic upon log in to reduce audio feedback during class.

Thanks and see you there!
