14 September - 12 October

As we continue navigating through this pandemic and the uncertainty that many of us may be experiencing personally, politically even spiritually how can we utilize our greatest resource - the Body itself and our conscious connection to it - to find refuge.  

Gina de la Chesnaye will offer a variety of mind body practices including meditation, breathwork, Qi Gong, and dharma to help us work with the trauma of the current situation which may also be bringing up past trauma which may be felt as anxiety, depression, dissociation and grief.  

Within each of us is not only the ability to heal but to find refuge in our connection to ourselves, each other and this crazy thing called being Life. 

Components of class will include Breathwork, Meditation, Mindful Movement through Yoga, Qi Gong, and Restorative Poses, Sharing, Discussion, and Dharma.

Join Us!
