This is a public event for self-identified Black + Brown women with limited spots.
RSVP-required. To assist our management of COVID Safety, please RSVP above.
Along with our everyday concerns, we are caring the weight of grief as we witness the trial and relive the murder of George Floyd again and again.We compartmentalize, disengage, stonewall, because we must, in order to get out of bed, care for our children, work at our jobs.
To care for ourselves and release the grief that so many of us harbor within our body, Render Free is partnering with Sierra Carter of The Zen Bin to offer a hour of healing through TrapSoul yoga + meditation.
TrapSoul Meditation + Yoga is a restorative yoga practice infused with an amazing playlist and healing breathwork focused on learning more about your whole self through slower and deeper breath and music while holding poses and stretches longer than a traditional yoga class. This practice is one to challenge your way of thinking, being & restoring your sense of worth, peace & love. If you have felt you were not strong enough or flexible enough or skinny enough or young enough for yoga this is the class for you.
Together, we will be lead in breathing and movement that release stress and anxiety and invites healing.

Postponed - More details coming soon
