I’m teaching a Wednesday evening Chakra Flow at 6:30 via Zoom. Preregistration is required. July is dedicated to Muladhara, the root chakra. In August we’ll be moving on up to Svasidsthana, the sacral chakra. Anna Bizarro is hosting this class. Please email her at email@example.com for registration details. This class is by donation.
NEW – As of July 17
Friday morning gentle flow with meditation, 8:30-9:45.
This class is inspired by some of the work I’ve been doing with my clients who are looking for a practice to deepen their connection with breath while learning to inhabit their bodies in different ways and reduce anxiety. The sequence will be “gentleish”, with a lot of breath based movement and some play. The practice will conclude with meditation.
What: Morning gentle yoga with meditation
When: Friday mornings at 8:30 EDT
How Much: $15 or whatever you can afford. Times are tough.
How: Via Zoom, what else.
Please send me an email for more general info, registration and payment information: firstname.lastname@example.org
Helpful props to have for these practices will be a blanket or two, a strap and two yoga blocks. Books, towels, bathrobe belts, regular belts, stools, chairs, beds, couches, walls and other household items can be substituted for these items. One of the beauties of working from home is that you can take advantage of what that home has to offer.
Meditation for Self Reflection, June 19, 2020 @ 9:00 AM EDT
Over the last two weeks I have struggled with my personal reaction to the killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, now Rayshard Brooks, all the innocents who came before and unfortunately all who will come after. I have watched in horror as looting in response to some of these events targeted hard working Blacks who put their hearts and souls into their businesses only to see them turn to rubble in a heartbeat. I have listened to mostly Brown man after Brown man recount their tales of terror as the police and others have demonstrated to them who holds the power. I experienced that moment when the realization sets in that the reason hypertension is so prevalent among Black males is precisely because they are Black males, targeted and living in states of fear and hyper vigilance as their bodies internalize being constantly threatened. I received at least a dozen emails from companies with whom I’ve done business pledging their allegiance with Black Lives Matter and promising to do better in their recruiting and representation efforts. These are the same companies from whom I’ve received the same emails on occasion when there is a reason for White Guilt to be present. I also started to think about myself as a mixed-race and outwardly appearing Black woman and my own role in this drama.
The more I turned inward and examined my reactions the more I started to consider my response and so I offer this.
This Friday, June 19 at 9:00 EDT, I will host a public meditation, via Zoom, designed for inner reflection. During this guided meditation participants will identify different aspects of themselves and maybe even generational aspects of their existence before settling into silence, being with what was revealed, clearing energy and focusing on the future. Pre-registration will be required and donations of any amount will be collected via Venmo to benefit the Equal Justice Initiative. Donations will not be required for participation.
Please join me.
