What is your favorite book?

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera, and The Wisdom of Insecurity by Alan Watts

Favorite self care strategy?

Putting my headphones on and dancing. Moving any stuck energy around by wiggling and shaking!

Why are you excited about Inner Sense Healing Arts Collective?

I'm so excited for community. To be in a safe place where we can share our gifts, embrace our weirdness, laugh, love, and connect.

Give yourself space to breathe and relax. This class involves deep stretch yin postures to soften with, passive restorative poses to melt in, and doses of reiki throughout the class. Reiki is a Japanese hands-on healing modality that transmits through a practitioner's' hands to the receiver. Slow yoga and Reiki both promote relaxation, stress relief, and create balance within the body and mind. Come as you are (with extra comfortable clothes).
