Event description

Description

Join us for one hour of yoga and contact improvisation every Tuesday in August. Discover your body through asanas and free-form movement while connecting with others. This sessions are especially intended for beginners but all levels are welcome. We start at 5:00 PM but you can join us anytime. This event is followed by one hour of mindfulness meditation.

Contact improvisation is a form of improvised movement that involves the exploration of one's body in relationship to others by using the fundamentals of sharing space, sharing weight, movement awareness, emotional awareness, and touch. Contact can have special meaning for each person: a dance, a workout, an art form, a spiritual practice, a group activity.

Yoga is a set of physical, mental, and spiritual practices. Its health benefits include increasing general health and stamina, reducing stress, and improving conditions brought about by sedentary lifestyles and may have positive effects on mental health.

• Cost •
There is no cost for this event but donations (minimum $5 suggested) are greatly appreciated. This allows us to offer this program to everyone regardless of their current financial situation.

• Important to know •
Strong perfumes can make some people sick, and strong body odours can be very unpleasant and distracting. Let's be considerate and make this a scent-neutral space.
