Often we seek sanctuary in the outside world...We invite you to seek sanctuary inside yourself: in your cathedral of skin and bones, in your body-temple.

Coming into our bodies can sometimes bring challenges: maybe we cannot find our way in, maybe certain parts of our temple are closed due to construction or fallen rubble, or certain areas might feel foreign and uninhabited.

Through yoga and the 5Rhythms® movement practice we will open the gates to our bodies and find our way into inhabiting this house of spirit.

Please join us in co-creating this sanctuary, a nourishing haven, a spa for body, mind and heart right here in the city in the midst of our busy lives. We are offering a safe and sacred space where you can come home to yourself, find rest, nourishment and replenish in community.

Every body is welcome!

Each event will feature a different local yoga teacher and may include live music, artistic expression, or culinary treats. The dance journey will be lightly facilitated and DJed by Bettina Rothe.
