3. Nurture Your Whole Self

Zumba with Colleen (6-6:35pm): A fusion of Latin and international music-dance themes, Zumba includes dynamic, energetic movement and easy-to-follow dance steps in order to produce a fun, uplifting experience.

Mindful Yoga with Emily (6:40-7:15pm): Through traditional yoga postures and breathing techniques, this class is designed to enhance internal awareness and self-compassion by connecting mind, body, and spirit. The pace of the class is moderate while a meditative, mindful approach is emphasized to restore inner balance.

All individuals, from beginners to experienced practitioners, are invited to attend either or both of these classes. Dress in comfortable clothes and bring a large towel or yoga mat, if you have one. A limited number of mats will be available at the workshop. Space is limited to 30 participants.
