Expansive Yoga Rooftop Series

Wednesdays / 6:45-9:15pm / August 1 - September 19

Join me for a social, community-based, 8-week series of yoga-by-donation and conscious conversation at the Lightning Society Lofts Rooftop. Each week a new idea will be presented through movement in a 1-hour yoga practice, followed by 1 hour of conscious community conversation around the application of this topic in our day-to-day lives.

Yoga classes will cater to all levels. Some mats will be available on a first come, first served basis. If you are able to bring your own, please do so! Everyone is encouraged to participate in our group discussions but there is absolutely no pressure to do so. All we ask is that you come with an open mind and a willingness to explore!
--
This series is themed around the energies of the season.

In summer the energy is big, playful, happy, full of passion and potential. In the first four weeks of our series, our events will focus on expansion into our fullest expression of power.

As we move into late summer, our energy requires more grounding as a means to transition into the contractive energy of Fall. In the second four weeks of our series, the focus of our events shifts toward grounding, stability, and support.
