Workshop Overview

Our expansive SelfCare After Series uniquely infuses social justice with wellness as a method to identify the institutional changes necessary to cultivate a healthier culture. 

Each workshop infuses yoga inspired movement and breathing exercises for the physical element of wellness.  Our foundation is emotional justice (from the work of Esther Armah) and we encourage you to join us as we shift a culture and thus change the world.
