Welcome to our community of passionate, engaged change-makers, story tellers, activists, and practitioners. Join us for a series of virtual gatherings where practice is our focus. Awareness, Story, Dialogue and Working with Difference support us in re/membering, envisioning and creating a more just future.

Return to Yoga Practice with Kavitha Rao

Fall has always been a hard season for me, but Fall 2020 is shaping up to be an especially intense one. Climate catastrophes, anti-black violence, obscenely growing economic inequities, the election, the pandemic…there’s a lot to feed our fear and anxiety during a time when our creativity and flexibility are so needed.

It’s time to recommit to practice. Please join me for one day or every class, as it fits your schedule and needs! Drawing from qi-gong, yoga, and ayurveda, I’ll offer basic practices to help anchor and soothe during the season of wind and change. Like the classes I offered in the spring, I’ll focus on strengthening lungs and working with emotions like grief, anxiety, fear and rage.

I’ll start with 3 days in a row next week around the equinox (Tues/Wed/Thurs) and then we’ll move to weekly on Wednesday mornings. 10AM ET / 9AM CT / 8AM MT / 7AM PT

Register for Fall yoga with Kavitha here!
