We Out Here: Saturday
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.
HOW ARE YOU DOING? A CONVERSATION ON MENTAL/EMOTIONAL HEALTH IN 2020
How are you doing? No- how are you doing for real? 2020 has been a difficult year, but for many of us, the news doesn’t seem so new. Come join us on Saturday, June 20 at 10:00 a.m. PDT to participate in a conversation around mental and emotional health and wellbeing during times in which many of us don’t feel equipped with the tools we need. Katrina M. Sanford, PsyD, John Guy, M.A., LMHC, and Aviona Rodriguez Brown will convene and share their experiences on what’s going on and what we can do to take care of ourselves and each other.
This conversation will take place between the speakers and will be streamed to YouTube (captioned live) and Facebook Live. Questions and comments in real-time are welcomed and will be moderated through the conversation. We hope to create a shared experience to an intimate conversation.
