Tap into a place of peace & empowerment amidst chaotic times. In light of the ongoing stresses of our national climate, it can be helpful to establish ongoing, healing self-care practices. Meditating, practicing yoga, listening to inspiring music and joining our voices in song are helpful ways to combat the anxiety, stress and feelings of powerlessness. Come together for this enriching evening to practice yoga, tune in and re-center yourself. Stretch, breathe and meditate with other like-minded women who care deeply about social equality.

Jaclyn Long will lead you through gentle, mindfulness-based yoga sequences designed to soothe your nervous system and refuel you for the journey ahead. Betsy Rose will then guide you through an incredibly profound experience of music, emotion and song. She will help you feel more empowered and alive as she engages your senses and opens your heart through her thoughtfully chosen songs. This evening will not just be an event, it will be a transformative experience that opens you up, connects you with others, and gives you strength as you re-align with your deeper values and internal resolve.

All proceeds will enable low-income moms to participate in Mindful Moms in-person wellness groups and Dedicated Moms online program at no charge! We care deeply about ALL of the mothers in our community, and we want to help support them, so they can better support their children. Your participation will help us support the mothers in our community. This event is not just for moms, it is for all women – you don’t have to be a mom to attend!

Invite your friends to practice yoga for GOOD!
