YOGA WITH MARVA
Marva began her yoga experience/journey in 1999 in Seattle. She has been teaching for 17 years at several studios in various parts of Washington State and also in different parts of the world. Marva teaches a strength-building, healing class with emphasis on correct form and alignment. You will enjoy the dynamic sequences that challenge the mind and body and take you on a journey to self-awareness and acknowledgment without judgment. Students enjoy her energetic and nurturing instructions and are especially inspired by the demonstration of her own immensely powerful and graceful practice.
PROSE ON DUALITY FROM AN AFROLATINA
Duality and racism: are these things that go hand in hand? For an AfroLatinx person, there cannot be one without the other. Follow along the self-written poetry of Aviona Creatrix Rodriguez Brown depicting the struggles found between the lines. After the performance join a live chat with Aviona to discuss the process of using poetry writing as a healing mechanism and making these pieces into a one person performance.
