Quarantine Digital Care Package #2

We still remain closed until further notice and it appears Digital Care Package #1 was quite a hit, so we have thoughtfully curated a 2nd edition for you all :)

We hope this package containing poetry, music, film, resources for moving your body and for self-regulation as well as community-care supports that will help you feel energetically-emotionally-spiritually held.

Stay home, stay safe and sending love and well-wishes from afar. We will be back with digital care package #3 in a few weeks.

  • Morning Slow Hatha Yoga Flow with Instructor Melissa Krieger
    Some people have trouble waking up in the morning, so Melissa designed this class so that you can move slowly at first, to shake the sleep out of your eyes, before moving into poses that you need to wake up for. This is a gentle class that will feel deeply satisfying if you allow yourself to sink into it.
