“Moving Art” will embrace the elements of the human condition with respect, love and compassion.

Dances for Healing with Emma Davis
Fri 3/19 @ 5 pm (1 hour)
Dances for Healing speaks to small actions for creating big changes. We are individuals gathering to move together at the speed of trust. Trust in ourselves and trust in each other. Together we create a moment that can only happen right now with our movements for change within oneself, within our community together, and within our society at large. A change that grows when we pay attention to it.
This class offers guided movements that draw upon inspiration from the places around us and our personal experience. Participants will stretch, spiral, and release stress in the spine, shoulders, and core while heightening bodily and spatial awareness. Then, contribute to the creation of a collective movement meditation that propels dance into action for personal, communal, and societal change towards healing.
Gyrokinesis with Amy Hutchison
Wed 3/24 @ 12 noon (1 hour)
Gyrokinesis is a flowing sequence of movements for the whole body! It decompresses joints, increases range of motion, and builds strength and stamina. Emphasis is on movement of the spine, circular and figure eight patterns, and deep breath work. Participants can expect to move the whole hour and feel amazing afterward! Please have a sturdy chair or stool, and a mat or towel available for the class.
