Every Tuesday, 5:30-6:45pm: Yoga for Women taught by Hong Gwi-Seok All women-identified folks are welcome. If you want to come to focus on reproductive issues, such as pregnancy, menstruation, or menopause, this is the perfect time. Or if you prefer a women-only class for personal or religious reasons, you are also most welcome. We will have the room curtained on both sides for privacy.
2nd Fridays, 5:30-7pm, taught by Hong Gwi-Seok, focuses on: Resilience and Resistance: Restorative Yoga for Activists If you are on the front lines, fighting for water rights, decent schools, blocking foreclosures, and protecting Detroit from gentrifiers, you may well be stressed and exhausted. Take an evening to refuel, reboot, and restore. Let yourself be supported and nurtured. Spend time with comrades, resting deeply. As Sister Audre Lorde reminds us, “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.”
4th Fridays, taught by rotating IYD faculty, will continue the focus on deep rest and recuperation. Every Saturday, 11:00am - 12:15pm: Yoga for the Seasons taught by Erin Shawgo Uplifting poses to help with the ups and downs in our emotional seasons. Standing poses, supported backbends and inversions help to steady the imbalance experienced with stress, anxiety, depression and Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). This is a multi-level class, open to all experience levels. In addition to being a CIYT, Erin holds her MSW with a background working in mental health and counseling.
